S/oren Kierkegaard's Works of Love (1847), a series of deliberations on the commandment to love one's neighbour, has often been condemned by critics. Here, Ferreira seeks to rehabilitate Works of Love as one of Kierkegaard's most important works. She shows that Kierkegaard's deliberations on love are highly relevant to some important themes in contemporary ethics, including impartiality, duty, equality, mutuality, reciprocity, self-love, sympathy, and sacrifice. Ferreira also argues that Works of Love bears on such issues as the role of God as "e;middle term,"e; and the possibility of preserving the aesthetic dimensions of love in a religious ethic of relation.
