Description

This book traces the development of Karol Wojtyla's philosophical anthropology and ethics. The work helps to address the poverty of English translations of Wojtyla's writings by including a critical examination of "The Lectures of Lublin". Rarely can one find such an opportunity and an unprecedented stage in the theater of world history to continue developing and 'testing out' one's ethical construction. Wojtyla's ethical writings uniquely offer the full scope and scale of ethics in its theoretical and applied possibilities played out in the most comprehensively open context of concrete historical totality. The English speaking world, due to the poverty of English translations of Wojtyla's writings consider "The Acting Person" his magnum opus without situating it within his larger ethical concerns. It is for this reason that his still unpublished ethical writings in English, such as "The Lectures from Lublin" will be included and critically examined here in order to situate "The Acting Person" as the necessary horizon and theoretical requirement for his overall ethical construction.
