But what is more important is that the typical gambler consciously or unconsciously believes in his right to ask for special protection by fate. His gambling is an attempt to compel fate in a magical way to do its duty. (1946, p. 372) 36 Yet the gambler may realize this to be futile.

But in both cases, what the agent claims to love are qualities or abilities that might 42 well be possessed by other people who would be, for that reason, equally worthy of the agent's love. There would be nothing distinctive in principle about the object of the agent's affections, and hence nothing about the beloved that would be irreplaceable in those affections; and hence, as was argued previously concerning types of means and occupants of roles, no love of someone as uniquely valuable and worthwhile.

Anthony Quinton, for example, has argued that only personalities, even if incomplete, can have interests and hence be objects of love. For in loving a person one must be able to think of that person 'as a continuing being with an identity like one's own'. Some of the persons or quasipersons, such as animals, infants, and defectives, whom we love cannot, therefore, reciprocate our love, although they can like us. The characteristics that Quinton takes to be constitutive of personality are 'consciousness, rationality, will, moral status and capacity for personal relations'.
