Edith Stein (1891-1942) and Hannah Arendt (1906-1975) are there any factors that these two women philosophers could be mentioned side by side? The aim of this study is to reveal the commonalities and differences between them through the Christian love they mention in their doctoral dissertations. Above all, both of these Jewish female philosophers establish a common ground in their doctoral dissertations in two points. First, in discussing the emotion of love, and second, in mentioning the love associated with Christianity. However, there is a difference in terms of the significance of Christian love in each of them. Arendt embodies the ‘love for others’ by responsibility and care in reality, criticizing the surreal and unreal understanding of Christian love, whereas Stein emphasizes the Zwischenheit (Betweenness) which is revealed by enhancing personal relationship between you and me through empathy, presenting the ‘love for others’ in reality the same as Arendt, but at the same time acknowledging its limitations. Stein endeavors to overcome the limitations in the real world through the surreal Christian truth which is criticized by Arendt. In this context, it can be verified that both of these Jewish female philosophers have written a common goal of Christian love and truth in their doctoral dissertations, but the difference is that they point out different aspects about it, one positive and the other negative.
