    Self as himself or only self

    "One should love others as one loves his or herself."

    I was looking at this sentence and I became curious as to which is correct. Am I able to state it in the way above or should it be

    "One should love others as one loves his or her self."

    With a seperation of her and self?

    Welcome to the forums.


    If you use the pronoun "his", then space to "self" is required. Using "himself/herself", the sentence reads: One should love others as one love him- or herself.

    One should love others as one loves him- or herself.

    Reflexive pronouns.
