Soren Kierkegaard's Works of Love (1847), a series of deliberations on the commandment to love one's neighbor, has often been condemned by critics. Here, Ferreira seeks to rehabilitate Works of Love as one of Kierkegaard's most important works. He shows that Kierkegaard's deliberations on love are highly relevant to some important themes in contemporary ethics, including impartiality, duty, equality, mutuality, reciprocity, self-love, sympathy, and sacrifice. Ferreira also argues that Works of Love bears on issues peculiar to a religious ethic, such as the role of God as "middle term," and the possibility of preserving the aesthetic dimensions of love in a religious ethic of relation.

About the Author:

M. Jamie Ferreira is Professor of Religious Studies at the University of Virginia.

Review:

Not only will this book transform the ways in which we read Works of Love, it reminds us that Kierkegaard deserves a place among the most important of Christian ethicists. * Philosophical Investigations * ...a noteworthy contribution to Kierkegaard studies. * The Review of Metaphysics *
