♥ Book Title : Love and the Dignity of Human Life
☯ Full Synopsis : "What does it mean to love someone? What does the concept of human dignity mean, and what are its consequences? What marks the end of a person's life? Is personhood more than consciousness? These perplexing questions lurk beneath the surface of everyday life, surfacing only to demand urgent attention in crises. Renowned German philosopher Robert Spaemann addresses these and other foundational enigmas in three eloquent short essays. Speaking wisdom to controversy, he offers carefully considered, novel approaches to key philosophical and theological questions about the nature of human love ("The Paradoxes of Love"), dignity ("Human Dignity and Human Nature"), and death ("Is Brain Death the Death of a Human Person?")."Article| Robert Spaemann, David L.

♥ Book Title : Divine Love – Life Love – Human Love
☯ Full Synopsis : "Divine Love Life Love Human Love: My Mother Is My Aunt-in-Law is a practical, social, pastoral, spiritual, and theological novel. It is about the story of a girl who was brought up by her foster mother. She did not know that her foster mother was not her natural mother until the mother had passed away, because she had always loved and cared for her wholeheartedly, tenderly, and sincerely. From a girl who did not have much faith in God, the daughter had changed unbelievably to have strong faith in the Creator and to be willing and desiring to serve people around her. She decided to give her life to God by entering a convent to become a nun, and she also remained serving people tirelessly in her vocation as a doctor. The conversion of her life happened through the way she felt and understood the wonderful love of her foster and natural mothers for her and the unconditional love of God for her and for humanity. Through this story, the author wishes that the readers may be moved and begin to think about the grace and love of God for them and for the whole human race. He wants all people to slow down the ways they live their lives and learn to feel more, to feel more about others, about themselves, about life, about the meaning of their existence and living, and especially to feel more about Gods love for them."Article| Thanh Tran| Statement ..."
♥ Book Title : Sweet Sorrow
☯ Full Synopsis : "This book defines the centrality of love and loss in human life and in human meaning. Bowlby's Attachment theory forms the basis for understanding our selves and our relationships. Alan Eppel proposes that love is the subjective experience of attachment and that dyadic relationships are the source of ultimate meaning. He supports his theses with a tour de force integration of ideas from attachment theory, psychoanalysis, neuroscience and existential philosophy. He argues that the quality of attachment between mother and infant lays the foundation for the formation of individual identity and ultimately shapes our capacity to engage in relationships with others. Eppel describes loss as the reciprocal of attachment and considers the enormous influence of loss on our moods, sense of identity, and our desire to live or die. The final segments of the book describe the implications of this analysis and links it to the meaning and purpose of human life.All of us seek to understand the meaning of life, and especially the meaning of our own lives. Anyone with a curiosity about love and loss will find this book attractive, as it provides insight and illumination to many of the human circumstances that people encounter in their day to day lives. It will appeal to sophisticated lay readers in addition to various categories of student and professional audiences. It will be of interest to psychologists, psychiatrists, psychotherapists, philosophers, neuroscientists and sociologists. Readers with a background mainly in the arts and humanities will find it appealing because of its linkages and use of poetry, song and visual art to elucidate and illustrate the major propositions of the book."Article| Alan B.

♥ Book Title : Through Human Love to God
☯ Full Synopsis : "Dante and Petrarch are two of the world's greatest love poets who convey the story of their emotional, intellectual, and religious life in part through a story of human love. The focus here is not so much on the myriad symbolic values and associations of Beatrice and Laura but rather both on the attitudes of these two poets to sexual desire in order to throw some light on the character of their human love and on the status and value they give to human love in the context of their Christian lives.For all the stark contrasts between them, Dante and Petrarch have been often compared, for they write in a common literary, classical, and Christian tradition. The comparison generally leads to the conclusion that Dante describes his human love experience as positive and constructive whilst Petrarch's experience of love is negative and destructive. My intention here is not to polarize their views in this way, but rather to identify the different yet positive and highly original value both poets attribute to human love. More than fifty years ago, Etienne Gilson claimed that Peter Abelard turned to loving God in the way that Heloise had loved him, with the disinterestedness which she claimed in loving him and which she accused him of never understanding in loving her. It is the general argument of this study that Dante and Petrarch, as well as leaving their original mark on the treatment of love in literature, have insights into religion, personal to them, which can be likewise characterized by examining their attitude to human love and the story of their personal loves. There are many more aspects to their Catholicism than are examined in these essays. The discussion here is of that part of their faith which grows out of, is coloured by, or at least can be explored, through their human loving."Article| Pamela Williams| Statement ..."

♥ Book Title : Love as Method of Human Existence
☯ Full Synopsis : "In process of development of society the love is filled with social and moral contents, becoming a sample of human relations. Only in love and through love of people becomes the person. Without love it the defective being deprived of original life and depth and not capable neither to work effectively, nor to understand adequately others and itself. And if the person - the central object of philosophy, then the subject of human love taken in all its width should be one of leaders in philosophical reflections."Article| William Gore| Statement ..."
♥ Book Title : Love, Human and Divine
☯ Full Synopsis : "Although the two great commandments to love God and to love our neighbors as ourselves are central to Christianity, few theologians or spiritual writers have undertaken an extensive account of the meaning and forms of these loves. Most accounts, in fact, make love of God and love of self either impossible or immoral. Integrating these two commandments, Edward Vacek, SJ, develops an original account of love as the theological foundation for Christian ethics. Vacek criticizes common understandings of agape, eros, and philia, examining the arguments of Aquinas, Nygren, Outka, Rahner, Scheler, and other theologians and philosophers. He defines love as an emotional, affirmative participation in the beloved's real and ideal goodness, and he extends this definition to the love between God and self. Vacek proposes that the heart of Christian moral life is loving cooperation with God in a mutually perfecting friendship."Article| Edward Collins Vacek, SJ| Statement ..."
♥ Book Title : Complementarity of Human Life and Other Life Forms in Nature
☯ Full Synopsis : "The root cause of current environmental crisis has been equated with the rupture of human interconnectedness with nature and defined as the alienation of human beings from God, fellow human beings, and from nature. The loss of human dignity and the right order in creation are the creator and master of creation, promoting love and communion among human beings and maintaining an attitude of responsible care for other life forms in nature could end this alienation. The present research on the human interconnectedness with nature is an attempt to define human obligations toward the environmentaTwo paradigms have strong potential for inculcating a sense of appreciation and gratitude to God for the gift of life a respect for all life forms and a harmonious relationship with the entire creation"Article| Prem Xalxo| Statement ..."
♥ Book Title : Selfless Love and Human Flourishing in Paul Tillich and Iris Murdoch
☯ Full Synopsis : "With the rise of modernity, traditional moral concepts such as 'selfless love' have come to appear oppressive or utopistic. Selfless Love and Human Flourishing in Paul Tillich and Iris Murdoch puts such a judgment to the test and reconsiders the grounds on which selfless love may in fact be crucial to human flourishing. It argues that Paul Tillich and Iris Murdoch sought to sustain the link between selfless love and human flourishing by capitalising onthe very deconstruction of the self that contributed to the demise of selfless love."Article| Julia T.

♥ Book Title : The Radical Insufficiency of Human Life
☯ Full Synopsis : "The postromantic works of the Spaniard Rosalía de Castro and the Colombian José Asunción Silva are indispensable in any anthology of 19th century Spanish and Latin American poetry. However, they found few appreciative readers during their lifetimes, even while displaying two of the most sincere voices of the day. Dever's book is unique: it is the first comparison of Castro's and Silva's poetry. Their works have meaningful differences but share remarkable likenesses in theme, tone, and style, though it is doubtful that either was aware of the other's existence. Of interest to feminist critics is an interpretation of Castro's literary vocation within a patriarchal society. Using the ideas of three 20th century Spanish thinkers, José Ortega y Gasset, Xavier Zubiri, and Pedro Laín Entralgo, Dever applies the concept of radical insufficiency to a comparison of the poets' works. Radical insufficiency holds that humans lack a determined being and fixed course for life, thus norms are not available to make the world intelligible. Humans experience feelings of uncertainty and emptiness, which inevitably lead to anxiety. Confronted by the mystery and pathos of human life, Castro and Silva both describe futile attempts to overcome this insufficiency through creation and contemplation of art, human relationships, and religion. The significance of these writers has transcended their own time; when examined in the context of Spanish and Latin American authors and thinkers who succeeded them, the importance of their works will continue to grow."Article| Aileen Dever| Statement ..."
