The Three Philosophies of Life

"I've been a philosopher for all my adult life and the three most profound books of philosophy that I have ever read are Ecclesiastes, Job, and Song of Songs." These are the opening lines of Kreeft's Three Philosophies of Life.

Kreeft takes up the big questions of life, and marshals the answers with consummate grace and skill. He reflects that there are ultimately only three philosophies of life and each one is represented by one of these books of the Bible:

Life is vanity: Ecclesiastes
Life is suffering: Job
Life is love: Song of Songs

Finally, Kreeft sees in these books the epitome of theological virtues of faith, hope and love and "an essential summary of the spiritual history of the world".

Peter Kreeft is a professor of philosophy at Boston College. He is the author of many articles and books including Heaven: The Heart's Deepest Longing, Fundamentals of the Faith, A Turn of the Clock, and Letters to Jesus.
