Confessions of Love

The Ambiguities of Greek "Eros</I> and Latin "Caritas</I>

Series:

Edited By Craig J. N. de Paulo, Bernhardt Blumenthal and Catherine Conroy de Paulo

Confessions of Love: The Ambiguities of Greek ‘Eros’ and Latin ‘Caritas’ includes a collection of essays by internationally renowned scholars such as Phillip Cary, Roland Teske, and Leonid Rudnytzky, tackling some historic, controversial «confessions» of love. Inspired by the Augustinian tradition, this volume focuses on the ambiguous nature of love, especially with regard to some of the conflicting aspects of Greek eros and its ancient Latin rival, caritas, in great thinkers like Augustine, Thomas Aquinas, Marsilio Ficino, Freud, and Max Scheler. This volume will be of interest to humanities, philosophy, theology, history, and classics departments seeking a new way to approach the Western tradition through the historic controversy in the West over eros and caritas. Finally, its focus on the retrieval and disclosure of sensuality and eroticism in these great texts will also be of special interest to postmodernism and hermeneutics.
