Reviews

Power, prominence, or wealth can't give real meaning to life-only love can. This is a vivid account of love and the story of how love becomes the lodestone of Kierkegaard's varied and voluminous writing. In this fine and comprehensive book, Strawser shows how love stiches a self together and threads out to gently pull in friends and loved ones, giving verve and traction to a life. -- Edward F. Mooney, Syracuse University
Michael Strawser's book. . . is an important contribution to understanding the universal human experience of love. . . . Strawser's phenomenological exploration of love in the writings of Soren Kierkegaard offers valuable insights into the philosopher's life's work. . . Strawser's book is an approachable and engaging discussion that conveys the relevance of Kierkegaard for a contemporary world very much in need of more love. * Reading Religion *
According to Michael Strawser, the topic of love has become the central focus of Kierkegaard research in the early twenty-first century. Interpreting Kierkegaard as a phenomenological thinker, Strawser brings the ideas of a nineteenth-century author usefully into dialogue with recent and contemporary philosophers of love and emotion. His discussion is thus aimed at readers who wish to understand Kierkegaard, or love, or both. -- Rick Anthony Furtak, Colorado College
