Show Summary Details

Preview

The three deliberations opening the second series emphasize our “being‐for‐others” – our effort to build them up by presupposing love in them. This means believing in them and hoping for them, which require imagination and courage to take a risk. These exemplify the way in which love does to you as you do to others – a kind of ‘‘like‐for‐like’’ or mutuality.

Keywords: courage; imagination; mutuality; risk
