Person and Value: Karol Wojtyła’s Personalistic and Normative Theory of Man, Morality, and Love discusses the central themes of Karol Wojtyła’s personalistic teaching in a concise yet comprehensive manner. Grzegorz Ignatik presents a philosophical understanding of the human person and human action that conforms with the phenomenological and metaphysical methodologies used by Wojtyła himself. This book pays special attention to Wojtyła’s phenomenological insights concerning the significance of value for human life. Ignatik’s reflections are based on his extensive research of original texts—published and yet unpublished—written by Karol Wojtyła in his original tongue, Polish. By returning to and rediscovering the original sources, Person and Value provides a fresh and profound engagement with the anthropological and ethical thought of the future Pope John Paul II. Written for all who wish to encounter one of the most illustrious minds of the twentieth century, this book will be an indispensable key to reading his works.
