Product Description

Arguably the most compelling aspect of Kierkegaard's philosophy is his concept of love. Kierkegaard believed that in every person "there lies the dread of being alone in the world, forgotten by God, overlooked among the household of millions upon millions." Yet, within this statement a great irony exists (as in all of Kierkegaard's philosophy) precisely because it is autobiographic and subjective. Kierkegaard himself endured this fear with immense emotion. His project, unlike his Enlightenment peers, was not to isolate solitary objects in existence, but to examine human existence as THE existential problem. The heart of this problem, according to Kierkegaard, is love. Taking his cue from Jesus and Paul (as he so often does), Kierkegaard seeks to understand love from an existential and subjective viewpoint, and then show how to apply it outwardly, towards others and towards God.

Publisher's Description

One of Soren Kierkegaard's most important writings, Works of Love is a profound examination of the human heart, in which the great philosopher conducts the reader into the inmost secrets of Love. "Deep within every man," Kierkegaard writes, "there lies the dread of being alone in the world, forgotten by God, overlooked among the household of millions upon millions." Love, for Kierkegaard, is one of the central aspects of existence; it saves us from isolation and unites us with one another and with God. This new edition of Works of Love features an original foreword by Kierkegaard scholar George Pattison.
