VALOR Y EDUCACIÓN DEL AMOR SEGÚN MAX SCHELER Y SAN AGUSTÍN DE HIPONA
THE VALUE AND EDUCATION OF LOVE ACCORDING TO MAX SCHELER AND ST. AUGUSTINE OF HIPPO
Languages of publication
The theory of values by Max Scheler became one of the most influential theories in XX century. However, the term ‘value’ is insufficient to build a particular moral behavior. Under the Scheler’s concept of ‘value’ there is the concept of ‘love’ by Saint Augustine of Hippo. Thus, if the Augustinian influence is followed, one may go beyond the lacks of the Scheler’s theory. Through these lines one can trace the way leading from the concept of Christian love to the concepts of value, love and person by Scheler. There is, however, a question whether it is possible to teach values. According to the author if values are to be taught, the education of values is to be preceded by teaching love as a virtue.
