The two books comprised in this volume are in greater demand than any other works of Kierkegaard.

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

Concluding unscientific postscript to Philosophical fragments by Søren Kierkegaard ( Book )
12 editions published in 1992 in English and held by 722 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
In Philosophical Fragments the pseudonymous author Johannes Climacus explored the question: What is required in order to go beyond Socratic recollection of eternal ideas already possessed by the learner? Written as an afterword to this work, Concluding Unscientific Postscript is on one level a philosophical jest, yet on another it is Climacus' characterization of the subjective thinker's relation to the truth of Christianity. At once ironic, humorous, and polemical, this work takes on the unscientific form of a mimical-pathetical-dialectical compilation of ideas. Whereas the movement in the earlier pseudonymous writings is away from the aesthetic, the movement in Postscript is away from speculative thought. Kierkegaard intended Postscript to be his concluding work as an author.The subsequent second authorship after The Corsair Affair made Postscript the turning point in the entire authorship. Part One of the text volume examines the truth of Christianity as an objective issue, Part Two the subjective issue of what is involved for the individual in becoming a Christian, and the volume ends with an addendum in which Kierkegaard acknowledges and explains his relation to the pseudonymous authors and their writings. The second volume contains the scholarly apparatus, including a key to references and selected entries from Kierkegaard's journals and papers

Practice in Christianity by Søren Kierkegaard ( Book )
7 editions published in 1991 in English and held by 666 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Of the many works he wrote during 1848, Kierkegaard specified Practice in Christianity as "the most perfect and truest thing." In his reflections on such topics as Christ's invitation to the burdened, the imitatio Christi, the possibility of offense, and the exalted Christ, he takes as his theme the requirement of Christian ideality in the context of divine grace. Addressing clergy and laity alike, Kierkegaard asserts the need for institutional and personal admission of the accommodation of Christianity to the culture and to the individual misuse of grace. As a corrective defense, the book is an attempt to find, ideally, a basis for the established order, which would involve the order's ability to acknowledge the Christian requirement, confess its own distance from it, and resort to grace for support in its continued existence. At the same time the book can be read as the beginning of Kierkegaard's attack on Christendom. Because of the high ideality of the contents and in order to prevent the misunderstanding that he himself represented that ideality, Kierkegaard writes under a new pseudonym, Anti-Climacus.--From publisher's description

8 editions published between 1981 and 2009 in English and held by 638 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Three discourses on imagined occasions by Søren Kierkegaard ( Book )
8 editions published between 1993 and 2009 in English and held by 519 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Three Discourses on Imagined Occasions was among seven signed works by Kierkegaard, each published concurrently with one of his seven pseudonymous works - in this case, with Stages on Life's Way. The two volumes not only have a chronological relation but distinctively treat some common themes. It is quite possible, the editors suggest, that Kierkegaard worked alternatively on the two manuscripts: on Stages at his ordinary desk and on Discourses on Imagined Occasions at his high desk. The first of the three discourses, "On the Occasion of a Confession," centers on stillness, wonder, and the ultimate object of a human being's seeking - in contrast to the speechmaking on erotic love in "'In Vino Veritas,'" part one of Stages. The second discourse, "On the Occasion of a Wedding," complements the second part of Stages in which Judge William delivers a panegyric on marriage. The third discourse, "At a Graveside," sharpens the ethical and religious earnestness implicit in Quidam's "A Story of Suffering," in the third part of the other work
The book on Adler by Søren Kierkegaard ( Book )
8 editions published between 1998 and 2009 in English and held by 514 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The present volume is the third integral version, the closest to a copy Kierkegaard would have used if he had published. Later changes are indicated in the text and notes, and the Supplement contains sections of earlier versions omitted in the third version. A major change in the third version was the shifting of two revised sections to become addenda: "The Dialectical Relations: the Universal, the Single Individual, the Special Individual" and "The Difference between a Genius and an Apostle." In addition to discussing the central theme, the "most important ethical-religious concept," The Book on Adler provides a unique case study of Kierkegaard as a writer
