One of Kierkegaard's central writings, Works of Love is a profound and indispensible 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 to each other and to God. This new edition of Works of Love features an original introduction by Oxford theologian George Pattison. S ren Kierkegaard (1813-55) continues to exercise a wide influence on philosophy, literature, and theology. Many of his books were published under exotic pseudonyms, and explored different dimensions of life outside Christianity. These include Either/Or, Fear and Trembling and The Concept of Anxiety. He also wrote a number of more directly devotional works, including Works of Love, but in the last years of his life attacked the established Church in a series of polemical leaflets. George Pattison is a professor of theology at Oxford University and is regarded as the leading authority on Kierkegaard.
