Self Love and Christian Ethics


The contemporary moral climate encourages self love but deprives the individual of the resources needed to discern what it means to love oneself. Christian ethical ambivalence about self love complicates matters further. This book draws on theological accounts to assert that self love requires honesty to oneself and in acts and relationships. The arguments thereby call upon ethicists to revisit ontological accounts of the self.
