During the traditionally dormant season of winter, we here at Contagious Caritas would like to announce to you that there will be, indeed, more posts coming in the next few weeks–and long ones at that.
In the works are two longer posts that will incorporate some primary texts on theology, philosophy, and love.
The first post, tentatively titled “Ecclesiastes: The Dark-minded, Slightly Emo, Older Cousin of the Biblical Family,” will engage with biblical exegesis of the book of Ecclesiastes and a modern understanding of carpe diem.
The second post, which may or may not be called “Dealing with Something That Might Not Really Be Fully Understood Ever” will attempt to engage with love, the many Latin and Greek words for it, differentiating various varieties of it, and the author’s own struggle to come to terms with what romantic love is, if it even exists independent of other forms of love (is it just friendship + affection?).
Until then. . .
