Ethics, Love, and Faith in Kierkegaard collects essays from 13 leading scholars that center on key themes that characterize Kierkegaard's philosophy of religion. With their unique focus on notions of the self, views on the command to love one's neighbor, thoughts on melancholy and despair, and the articulation of religious vision, the essays in this volume cover the breadth and depth of Kierkegaard's philosophical and religious writings. Poised at the intersection of Kierkegaard's moral psychology and its religious significance, they offer vivid testimony to the ongoing power of his unique and fervent religious spirit. Students and scholars alike will find new light shed on questions that define Kierkegaard's philosophy and religion today.

Edward F. Mooney is Professor of Religion and Philosophy at Syracuse University. He is author of On Søren Kierkegaard: Dialogue, Polemic, Lost Intimacy, and Time and Selves in Discord and Resolve: Kierkegaard's Moral-Religion Psychology.
