Product Description

David Schindler's book Ordering Love: Liberal Societies and the Memory of God is a metaphysical study of God, love, technology, and culture in modern society.

Schindler argues that "reality" most basically and properly considered, is an order of love; a gift that finds its objective only in an entire way of life. Love is what first brings things into existence, and everything exists in, through, and for love. With this understanding of reality, Schindler explores how modern culture marginalizes love, regarding it at best as a matter of piety or goodwill rather than as the very stuff that makes our lives and the things of the world real.

Schindler examines how Western civilization's fixation with technology - especially its displacement of experience with experiment and its privileging of knowing and making - has undermined its capacity to build an authentic human culture. Schindler sees this as a technological age not simply because of technological advancements but because of the way we think as the result of our technological orientation. He shows, within the context of politics, economics, science, and cultural and professional life generally, that God-centered love is what gives things their deepest and most proper order and meaning.
