Transcripts & Translations


[Underlined: Law of Love] "The Christian utopians think they can dispense with all structures and rules of justice simply by fulfilling the law of love. They do not realize that the law of love stands on the edge of history and not in history, that it represents an ultimate and not an immediate possibility" Niebuhr, 298.
