“Who is My Neighbor?”: The Concept of the Neighbor in the Parable of the Good Samaritan (Luke 10:25-37) as a Social Phenomenon
AbstractIn this article, we aim to examine how the Parable of the Good Samaritan in Luke 10: 25-37, a biblical concept, was reflected in various modern social sciences. Following the research, we will analyze the concept of neighbor and how this biblical quotient gave rise to new areas of social research. In addition to the aspect of social love, commanded by the Savior, we can see how European social psychology reflects the example of the good Samaritan in its development. In addition to this science, we also focused on Ricoeur's sociology, but also on the development of the phenomenon of social justice. KEYWORDS: neighbor, good samaritan, social psychology, social justice, sociology, love
