About this product
- DescriptionThis book explores a hitherto neglected area of theological anthropology: the unity of human emotionality and rationality embodied in the biblical concept of the heart. While the theological contours of human reason have for long been clearly drawn and presented as the exclusive seat of the image of God, affectivity has been relegated to a secondary position. With the reintegration of the body into recent philosophical and theological discourses, a number of questions have arisen: if the image (also) resides in the body, how does this change one's view of the theological significance of human affectivity? In what way is our likeness to God realized in the whole of what we are? Can one overcome the traditional dissociation between intellect and affectivity by a renewed theory of love? In conversation with patristic and medieval authors (e.g., Irenaeus, Tertullian, Gregory of Nyssa, Maximus, Aquinas) and in dialogue with more recent interlocutors (Pascal, Ricoeur, Marion, Milbank, John Paul II), this work pursues a vel theological vision of the essential unity of our humanity. This book represents an important contribution to a Christian vision of affectivity--essential for understanding the human condition and our relationship with God. Through her study of such figures as Thomas Aquinas, Paul Ricoeur, Pope John Paul II, and Jean-Luc Marion, Toth has developed a 'Christian logic of affectivity' and the implications for theological anthropology. A timely study. --Declan Marmion, Professor of Systematic Theology, St. Patrick's College, Mayoth, Ireland This is a deep, rich, and surprising theological anthropology. Employing the riches of the theological tradition, Toth overcomes the centuries-old rupture between reason and affect by retrieving the biblical concept of the heart--life's 'innermost core'--and the 'median zone, ' reuniting the sensible and the spiritual. With an intensity worthy of Pascal, she thus shows how embodied human life can still be considered the image of God and of God's immense love. --Anthony J. Godzieba, Professor of Theology and Religious Studies, Villava University Beata Toth (STD, PhD KU Leuven) is Associate Professor in the Department of Systematic Theology at Sapientia College of Theology, Budapest, Hungary.
