Sharon Krishek, Ph.D., was a 2018 Visiting Faculty Fellow on leave from her post as a lecturer at the Philosophy Department at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem. Her research interests include issues in the philosophy of religion, existentialism, and ethics. She specializes in the philosophy of Soren Kierkegaard and is currently working on a book that examines his view of the nature of love, and its role within the good life. The book also aims to develop an independent model of love, that indeed builds on Kierkegaard’s insights but is not necessarily committed to his views (as it argues that romantic love is more fully compatible with the good life than he allows). The model offers an account of romantic love that is compatible with pivotal religious and moral concerns without compromising its central role in human life.
