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.
