Lovers in Essence

A Kierkegaardian Defense of Romantic Love

Sharon Krishek

  • Addresses pressing issues concerning our experience of love, for example, the roots of attraction, and how selfhood is bound up in romantic love
  • Presents an original theory of romantic love that contributes both to the scholarship on Kierkegaard and to substantial discussions of love
  • Uses a direct style that is accessible and free of jargon
