This publication explores a hitherto ignored zone of theological anthropology: the solidarity of human emotionality and rationality embodied within the biblical notion of the guts. whereas the theological contours of human cause have for lengthy been truly drawn and offered because the particular seat of a twin of God, affectivity has been relegated to a secondary place. With the reintegration of the physique into fresh philosophical and theological discourses, a few questions have arisen: if the picture (also) is living within the physique, how does this variation one's view of the theological value of human affectivity? In what means is our likeness to God learned within the complete of what we're? Can one conquer the normal dissociation among mind and affectivity via a renewed concept of affection? In dialog with patristic and medieval authors (e.g., Irenaeus, Tertullian, Gregory of Nyssa, Maximus, Aquinas) and in discussion with newer interlocutors (Pascal, Ricoeur, Marion, Milbank, John Paul II), this paintings pursues a unique theological imaginative and prescient of the fundamental harmony of our humanity.

"This e-book represents an immense contribution to a Christian imaginative and prescient of affectivity--essential for figuring out the human and our courting with God. via her research of such figures as Thomas Aquinas, Paul Ricoeur, Pope John Paul II, and Jean-Luc Marion, Toth has constructed a 'Christian common sense of affectivity' and the results for theological anthropology. A well timed study."

"This is a deep, wealthy, and excellent theological anthropology. utilising the riches of the theological culture, Tóth overcomes the centuries-old rupture among cause and have an effect on through retrieving the biblical idea of the heart--life's 'innermost core'--and the 'median zone,' reuniting the practical and the religious. With an depth precious of Pascal, she therefore indicates how embodied human existence can nonetheless be thought of a twin of God and of God's huge love."
