Format: Hardcover
This book is by far the best philosophical work on love to date. Coming from the perspective of a student philosopher immersed in research into the nature of love, I find no better articulated source on love than Dietrich von Hildebrand. One must consider that this is a work of (Catholic) moral phenomenology, so it may not be suitable for the lay reader. For the academic, however, this book elaborates on the nature of love to its fullest extent. A thorough, thought-provoking analysis that captures the essence of love in a myriad of ways, those seeking a higher level of clarification of what love is will not be disappointed by von Hildebrand's work. Written toward the end of his career, The Nature of Love absolutely reflects the insights of a brilliant and articulate philosopher, after a culmination of a life of love. Dietrich von Hildebrand must have been an unspeakably great husband; this work is unlike any I've come across in my two years of research. For the interested Catholics: Pope Benedict cites von Hildebrand as one of the greatest ethical writers of the twentieth century. This book is not to be missed.
