by Antonio Mercurio
Publisher: Sophia University of Rome 2010
Number of pages: 106

(Sophia University of Rome), the following answer: a PERSON is a spiritual, unifying principle that is endowed with its own freedom and its own identity, it is an end unto itself and unto no other, and its constituent elements are the ability to love oneself and to love others.
