Karol Wojtyla's Love and Responsibility : a summary. W illiam E. This book, published in Polish in and in English in , is a magnificent work, philosophical in nature, on the human person, human sexuality, love, and marriage.
Access options available:. Finally, the closest thing to an ethical reflection in these pages is Max Myers's thoughtful but sketchy attempt at constructing a theory of communication along the lines of Jiirgen Habermas. It is the revelatory possibility of this discourse which Christians express through the story of crucifixion and resurrection. Synopsizing six authors in a few paragraphs may be unfair, but it has justification in the common threads running through the books and in the common references in current literature.
Furthermore, the review does not begin to show how complex and opaque the writing is. All the authors prove themselves capable of crafting a clear sentence and careful paragraph , but too often they fall into linguistic contortions and pedantic name-dropping. Above all, there is little thought given to supportive reasoning. For what reasons one should adopt deconstructionism, other than that it is the newest wave, is not developed.
Of course, the theologians can adopt Derrida's tendency to dismiss people who ask for clarity and argumentation as victims of the very rationalist bias deserving of defeat.
At that juncture, we are all left babbling. Yet, as I have indicated, these deconstructionist essays do have positions and even rudimentary arguments ; and, when they become clear enough to ponder, they can be taken in ways which are as interesting and plausible as the best process thought or negative theology of earlier periods.
Still, pushed to their extreme, even these proposals on presence and difference, on truth and meaning, on theism and atheism Perhaps, in the end, theologians and philosophers alike need to follow deconstructionism to the depth where it self-destructs.
From this depth, we might get a new and better appreciation of traditional and revolutionary theologies. But the deconstructionist theologians must come to write with Derrida's wit and Rorty's lucidity if their theological endeavor is not to sink like the death of God phenomenon before it in the slough of bad writing.
New York: Farrar, Straus, Giroux, The book established Wojtyla as an expert in marital ethics by presenting a thorough, insightful , and original analysis of the nature of sexual love and its moral principles.
Wojtyla was subsequently appointed to the papal commission which reexamined the issue of contraception prior to the appearance of Humanae Vitae, and he may have influenced the content of that encyclical. In any case, the strong personalistic approach of this book, together with its equally strong rejection of artificial birth control, is consistent with the encyclical and with Wojtyla's own later views. The significance of the views on sexuality and marriage Wojtyla expresses in this book, however, is not limited to the admittedly important issue of contraception.
There is a danger that the book will only be read polemically in the light of this currently central Catholic issue, and that its greatest contribution will be ignored by both " conservative " and " liberal " alike. That contribution is Wojtyla's presentation of an uncompromising personalistic sexual ethic based on the intrinsic value of the human person and the consequent norm of love.
Wojtyla's sexual ethic is based on his insistence that a human being is both a subject and an object pp. As a subject, a human being is a person who is not merely a member of the species, "man," but a being with its own inner life of knowledge Project MUSE promotes the creation and dissemination of essential humanities and social science resources through collaboration with libraries, publishers, and scholars worldwide.

The group eventually grew to approximately participants, and their activities expanded to include annual skiing and kayaking trips. Wojtyla describes his reasons for writing the book as being "born principally of the need to put the norms of Catholic sexual morality on a firm basis, a basis as definitive as possible, relying on the most elementary and incontrovertible moral truths and the most fundamental values or goods". Thus, sexual intercourse between husband and wife is a symbol of their total mutual self-donation, and further fosters, strengthens and enriches it not just for the present but also for the future.
