The Danish philosopher K. E. Logstrup is best known in the Anglo-American world for his original work in ethics, primarily in ""The Ethical Demand"" (original Danish edition, 1956). Logstrup continued to write extensively on issues in ethics and phenomenology throughout his life, and extracts from some of his later writings are now also available in translation in ""Beyond the Ethical Demand"".In ""Concern for the Other: The Ethics of K. E. Logstrup"", eleven scholars examine the structure, intention, and originality of Logstrup's ethics as a whole. This collection of essays is a companion to ""Beyond the Ethical Demand"", as well as to ""The Ethical Demand"". The essays examine Logstrup's crucial concept of the ""sovereign expressions of life""; his view of moral principles as a substitute for, or inferior form of, ethics; his relationships to other philosophers, including the twentieth-century British moral philosophers; and the role of his Lutheran background in his ethics. Logstrup also firmly advanced the controversial thesis, examined by several essays in this volume, that the demand for ""other-concern"" central to his ethics does not depend on religious faith.For scholars and students seeking their first or their further understanding of this important thinker, this volume is a rich resource of insight and analysis.
