Chapter Summary

This chapter interpretes the Christian ethos of the love of neighbor as a contribution to an interdisciplinary approach to human sociality. It thus adds yet another perspective to the interpretations and representations of human sociality. The chapter shows the implications of the Christian perspective on human beings for an understanding of the phenomena of interpersonal sociality. This will be done by interpreting Christian love and mercy as basic forms of the relation to and behavior toward the fellow human. The chapter briefly outlines the ways in which this relationship to God determines the social relationship of Christians as a relation of proximity. The chapter argues that the Christian understanding of human sociality can only become a meaningful independent perspective on the basis of a theological reference to the entitiy of 'God.'.

Keywords:Christian ethos; Christian love; human sociality; humanity; interpersonal sociality
