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.

Soren Kierkegaard (1813–1855) lived in Copenhagen, Denmark. His books includeWorks of LoveandSpiritual Writings(translated and edited by George Pattison).

Rated 5 out of 5 by from To study love If you are interested in studying love, then the name Kierkgaard would be familiar to you. Great philosopher, a big body of work on love from the Christian perspective. A thick philosophical work of several hundred pages, many inspirations but unavoidably (especially when we laymen facing classical philosophical works) with some difficult/boring sections. I still like it a lot. I found Ilham Dilman's book "Love: Its Forms, Dimensions and Paradoxes" a good companion that provides some good explanations and discussions on Kierkegaard's work.
