ABSTRACT

It seems that there's no philosophical similarity between Kierkegaard and Bergson. But there's evident resemblance, because Love is sited in their thoughts and philosophies in common In case of Kierkegaard, He seeks to interpret abundantly the biblical word, Love, according to Christian Dogmatics and existential perspectives. In case of Bergson, He understands the word, Love according to the creative evolutionary theory. Bergson comprehends it on the basis of religious philosopher's views. In the former case, Love is alpha and omega, the God, God's Words. It represents as a generative power of all ethical doings and practices. All of human lives in the world are God's Works of Love. Only God, Jesus Christ can rescues human beings from the original sins. In the latter case, Love is considered to be situated at the very beginning of creative evolution. Just at this moment, Human beings succeed to the creative evolution continuously, by virtue of the divine love.
