The work will be of interest not only to those interested inMoreC. Stephen Evans explains and defends Kierkegaards account of moral obligations as rooted in Gods commands, the fundamental command being You shall love your neighbour as yourself. The work will be of interest not only to those interested in Kierkegaard, but also to those interested in the relation between ethics and religion, especially questions about whether morality can or must have a religious foundation. As well as providing a comprehensive reading of Kierkegaard as an ethical thinker, Evans puts him into conversation with contemporary moral theorists. Kierkegaards divine command theory is shown to be an account that safeguards human flourishing, as well as protecting the proper relations between religion and state in a pluralistic society.
