Kierkegaard's thought by Gregor Malantschuk( Book )

16 editions published between 1971 and 2015 in English and Undetermined and held by 2,085 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Kierkegaard's pseudonymous authorship has baffled readers, his apparent capriciousness making it difficult to determine his position at a given point and to understand his work as an organic whole. Gregor Malantschuk's study, based on careful reading of Kierkegaard's journals, papers, and texts, cuts through the authorship problem to clarify the philosopher's key ideas, see the comprehensive plan of his work, and make intelligible the dialectical coherence of his thought. Discussing Kierkegaard's dialectical method and his use of it from Either/Or to the final Two Discourses, Professor Malantschuk shows how coherently Kierkegaard set the individual works in place, so that even the conflict between the principal pseudonyms, Climacus and Anti-Climacus, serves to elucidate his major philosophical ideas. Contents: 1. Anthropological Contemplation. II. Kierkegaard's Dialectical Method. III. The Dialectic Employed in the Authorship. Index. Originally published in 1974. The Princeton Legacy Library uses the latest print-on-demand technology to again make available previously out-of-print books from the distinguished backlist of Princeton University Press.

Works of love : some Christian reflections in the form of discourses by Søren Kierkegaard( Book )

28 editions published between 1962 and 2009 in English and held by 1,855 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The various kinds and conditions of love are a common theme for Kierkegaard, beginning with his early Either/Or, through "The Diary of the Seducer" and Judge William's eulogy on married love, to his last work, on the changelessness of God's love. Works of Love, the midpoint in the series, is also the monumental high point, because of its penetrating, illuminating analysis of the forms and sources of love. Love as feeling and mood is distinguished from works of love, love of the lovable from love of the unlovely, preferential love from love as the royal law, love as mutual egotism from triangular love, and erotic love from self-giving love." "This work is marked by Kierkegaard's Socratic awareness of the reader, both as the center of awakened understanding and as the initiator of action. Written to be read aloud, this book conveys a keenness of thought and an insightful, poetic imagination that make such an attentive approach richly rewarding. Works of Love not only serves as an excellent place to begin exploring the writings of Kierkegaard but also rewards many rereadings."--Jacket
Fear and trembling ; and, the sickness unto death by Søren Kierkegaard( Book )

16 editions published between 1983 and 1992 in English and held by 1,560 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Presented here in a new translation, with a historical introduction by the translators, Fear and Trembling and Repetition are the most poetic and personal of Søren Kierkegaard's pseudonymous writings. Published in 1843 and written under the names Johannes de Silentio and Constantine Constantius, respectively, the books demonstrate Kierkegaard's transmutation of the personal into the lyrically religious."--Publisher's website

The sickness unto death : a Christian psychological exposition for upbuilding and awakening by Søren Kierkegaard( Book )

22 editions published between 1980 and 2013 in English and held by 1,267 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A companion piece to <i>The Concept of Anxiety</i>, this work continues Søren Kierkegaard's radical and comprehensive analysis of human nature in a spectrum of possibilities of existence. Present here is a remarkable combination of the insight of the poet and the contemplation of the philosopher. In <i>The Sickness unto Death</i>, Kierkegaard moves beyond anxiety on the mental-emotional level to the spiritual level, where--in contact with the eternal--anxiety becomes despair. Both anxiety and despair reflect the misrelation that arises in the self when the elements of the synthesis--the inf
Two ages : the age of revolution and the present age : a literary review by Søren Kierkegaard( Book )

16 editions published between 1977 and 2009 in English and held by 1,168 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

After deciding to terminate his authorship with the pseudonymous Concluding Unscientific Postscript, Kierkegaard composed reviews as a means of writing without being an author. Two Ages, here presented in a definitive English text, is simultaneously a review and a book in its own right. In it, Kierkegaard comments on the anonymously published Danish novel Two Ages, which contrasts the mentality of the age of the French Revolution with that of the subsequent epoch of rationalism. Kierkegaard commends the author's shrewdness, and his critique builds on the novel's view of the two gen
Philosophical fragments, or, A fragment of philosophy by Søren Kierkegaard( Book )

20 editions published between 1962 and 1987 in English and held by 1,126 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In dieser theologischen Arbeit entwickelt Kierkegaard seine Philosophie vom menschgewordenen Gott und vom Menschen, der sich durch ihn zu einer neuen, besseren Selbstsetzung motivieren läßt. Die Bissen werden damit zu einem Dokument faustischer Religiösität, des Urbilds dynamischen, spontanen Werdens und Schöpfertums und bilden einen ersten Kulminationspunkt im Denken des dänischen Philosophen
Philosophical fragments, Johannes Climacus by Søren Kierkegaard( Book )

16 editions published between 1985 and 1987 in English and held by 1,052 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Danish philosopher's influential work, outlining the distinction between Socratic irony and the leap of faith required for Christian belief, argues that freedom, which cannot be understood or proved, is the necessary condition for Christianity. Also includes the unfinished narrative "Johannes Climacus" in which a man sets out to doubt everything - a critique of Cartesian and Hegelian approaches to philosophy

Eighteen upbuilding discourses by Søren Kierkegaard( Book )

17 editions published between 1990 and 1997 in English and Chinese and held by 899 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

There is much to be learned philosophically from this volume, but philosophical instruction was not Kierkegaard's aim here, except in the broad sense of self-knowledge and deepened awareness. Indicating the intention of the discourses, the titles include ""The Expectancy of Faith, "" ""Love Will Hide a Multitude of Sins, "" ""Strengthening in the Inner Being, "" ""To Gain One's Soul in Patience, "" ""Patience in Expectancy, "" and ""Against Cowardliness."" In tone and substance these works are in accord with the concluding words of encouragement in Either/Or, which was paired with the fi

The moment and late writings by Søren Kierkegaard( Book )

12 editions published between 1998 and 2009 in English and held by 891 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

For Kierkegaard, poet of ideality and practitioner of the indirect method, ideality was a corrective and had a polemical side that was apparent in direct critiques in four episodes: the early criticism of Hans Christian Andersen in From the Papers of One Still Living; the Corsair affair with Meir Goldschmidt on destructive anonymous journalism; the exchange with Andreas G. Rudelbach on the politicizing reformation of the Church; and the "attack on Christendom" against the established ecclesiastical order and the formalism of culture-accommodated Christianity, the subject of the present volume
Stages on life's way : studies by various persons by Søren Kierkegaard( Book )

17 editions published between 1988 and 2009 in English and held by 859 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Either/or by Søren Kierkegaard( Book )

11 editions published between 1987 and 1990 in English and Undetermined and held by 858 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Søren Kierkegaard, the Danish philosopher, is a major influence in contemporary existentialist philosophy. In his work he dealt with three levels of existence -- the aesthetic, ethical and religious -- and the first two of these were his primary concern in this first great work. It appears pseudonymously, purporting to contain the papers of two men. One is a young man who, in his aphorisms, essays, lyrical outbursts and the famous "Diary of a seducer", brilliantly presents the pleasures of aesthetic life. The other is an older man, who writes letters discussing marriage and selfhood in which he tries to convince his young friend of the superiority of the ethical life. Kierkegaard indicates no choice between the two views; the reader is left to make his own decision" [Back cover]
Without authority by Søren Kierkegaard( Book )

14 editions published between 1997 and 2009 in English and held by 765 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The reaming works - Three Discourses at the Communion on Fridays, An Upbuilding Discourse, and Two Discourses at the Communion on Fridays - presuppose Gospel authority in mediations on forgiveness and the power of love

Upbuilding discourses in various spirits by Søren Kierkegaard( Book )

16 editions published between 1993 and 2009 in English and held by 754 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In his praise for Part I of Upbuilding Discourses in Various Spirits, the eminent Kierkegaard scholar Eduard Geismar said, "I am of the opinion that nothing of what he has written is to such a degree before the face of God. Anyone who really wants to understand Kierkegaard does well to begin with it." These discourses, composed after Kierkegaard had initially intended to end his public writing career, constitute the first work of his "second authorship." Characterized by Kierkegaard as ethical-ironic, Part One, on the theme of "Purity of Heart Is to Will One Thing," offers a penetrating discussion of double-mindedness and ethical integrity; the irony lies in the relation between factuality and ideality. Part Two, "What We Learn from the Lilies in the Field and from the Birds of the Air," is humorous for Kierkegaard in that it exposes an inverted qualitative difference between the learner and the teacher. In Part Three, "The Gospel of Sufferings, Christian Discourses," the philosopher explores the theme of joy, as in "The Joy of It That the School of Sufferings Educates for Eternity."
Three discourses on imagined occasions by Søren Kierkegaard( Book )

15 editions published between 1992 and 2009 in English and held by 739 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Three Discourses on Imagined Occasions was the last of seven works signed by Kierkegaard and published simultaneously with an anonymously authored companion piece. Imagined Occasions both complements and stands in contrast to Kierkegaard's pseudonymously published Stages on Life's Way. The two volumes not only have a chronological relation but treat some of the same distinct themes. The first of the three discourses, ""On the Occasion of a Confession, "" centers on stillness, wonder, and one's search for God--in contrast to the speechmaking on erotic love in ""In Vino Ve
Kierkegaard's Concluding unscientific postscript by Søren Kierkegaard( Book )

10 editions published in 1992 in English and held by 732 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Besides a sense of personal loss at the death of David F. Swenson on February 11, 1940, I felt dismay that he had left unfinished his translation of the Unscientific Postscript. I had longed to see it published among the first of Kierkegaard's works in English. In the spring of 1935 it did not seem exorbitant to hope that it might be ready for the printer by the end of that year. For in March I learned from Professor Swenson that he had years before "done about two thirds of a rough translation." In 1937/38 he took a sabbatical leave from his university for the sake of finishing this work. Yet after all it was not finished- partly because Professor Swenson was already incapacitated by the illness which eventually resulted in his death; but also because he aimed at a degree of perfection which hardly can be reached by a translator. At one time he expressed to me his suspicion that perhaps, as in the translation of Kant's philosophy, it might require the cooperation of many scholars during several generations before the translation of Kierkegaard's terminology could be definitely settled. I hailed with joy this new apprehension, which promised a speedy conclusion of the work, and in the words of Luther I urged him to "sin boldly."--Editor's pref., p. [ix]
