The objective of the present paper is to show, using Being and time and Zollikon Seminars, the existential-ontological constitution of love as a mood (Stimmung) fundamental to the coexistence of Dasein. The hypothesis advanced here is that the co-pertinence of love (the fundamental disclosedness to the other) and of freedom (the letting-be of the other) consists in a modification of the existential of state-of-mind and expresses the unity and ontological circularity of Being-in-the-world. We intend also to show that solicitude (the disclosedness towards Being-with) is the condition of possibility for the existential-ontological constitution of the mood of love. Centered on the text On the Essence of Truth, our purpose is to emphasize that freedom is also a modification of the existential of state-of-mind or, one might say, mood, and as such it is the ontological ground for uncovering a proper (eigentliche) way of Being. In this way, we are able to affirm that the mood of freedom precedes and penetrates the mood of love. This means that the mood of love is founded in the mood of freedom and that it resonates in that mood, which permits us to say that they are co-originating.
