Philosophical fragments, or, A fragment of philosophy by Søren Kierkegaard( Book )

28 editions published between 1962 and 1987 in English and held by 2,077 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
Works of love : some Christian reflections in the form of discourses by Søren Kierkegaard( Book )

24 editions published between 1962 and 2009 in English and held by 1,656 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 ; Repetition by Søren Kierkegaard( Book )

23 editions published between 1983 and 2009 in English and held by 1,563 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

Two ages : the age of revolution and the present age : a literary review by Søren Kierkegaard( Book )

15 editions published between 1977 and 2009 in English and held by 1,000 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

Kierkegaard's Concluding unscientific postscript by Søren Kierkegaard( Book )

32 editions published between 1992 and 2009 in English and held by 748 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

The concept of irony, with continual reference to Socrates : together with notes of Schelling's Berlin lectures by Søren Kierkegaard( Book )

20 editions published between 1988 and 1992 in English and held by 700 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Kierkegaard stand in seiner geistigen und künstlerischen Entwicklung zunächst stark unter dem Einfluß der deutschen Romantik. Bei seiner Auflehnung gegen den Vater verstand er sich, ein echter Romantiker, als schöpferisches Individuum, das sich durch herrschende Konventionen in seiner geistigen Entfaltung Schranken nicht setzen läßt. Ein Leitbegriff einer solchen romantischen Protesthaltung war die Ironie, aufgewertet zu einem allgemeinen geistigen Prinzip: Wirklichkeit ist für das geniale Individuum nur das Spielmaterial für seine zweckfrei bis ins Unendliche immer wieder neu gestaltende und jede Gestaltung wieder in Frage stellende Phantasie; den Darstellungen der aesthetischen Lebensanschauung im I. Teil von "Entweder-Oder" und im Gastmahl der Pseudonyme in den "Stadien auf des Lebens Weg" (s. 1. und 15. Abteilung der "Gesammelten Werke") hat sie die Grundmelodie gegeben. Doch hatte er das Lebenszerstörende einer schrankenlosen Protesthaltung bald erkannt. Andererseits blieb ihm die Eigenständigkeit der Persönlichkeit ein unverzichtbarer Gedanke. Da mußte es ihm ein Anliegen sein, die so als Prinzip weiterhin wichtig genommene Ironie seinem Gesamtbild geistiger Orientierung einzuordnen. Dieser Aufgabe widmet er sich nun mit seiner Dissertation. Die erste Persönlichkeit der Geistesgeschichte, die sich zur Ironie als einem Prinzip geistiger Wirksamkeit bekannt hat, war Sokrates. Sie ist bei ihm eine Kunst der Lenkung des Dialogs durch Fragen, bei denen er sich als unwissend bekennt oder unwissend stellt mit dem Ziel, Unklarheiten und Widersprüche im bisher geltenden Wissen und Denken aufzudecken und dies so als ungültig, als Unwissenheit zu enthüllen. Radikale Vertreter der romantischen Ironie beriefen sich deshalb auf ihn als ersten und größten Vertreter absoluter Negativität menschlicher Erkenntnis; Hegel dagegen sieht diese Zerstörung des bisher als gültig angenommenen Denkens nur als den notwendigen ersten Schritt auf dem Weg zu besserer Einsicht. Bei Versuchen, diese Frage zu klären, verwickelt man sich unvermeidlich in die endlose Auseinandersetzung darüber, inwieweit in den Dialogen Platos, die dafür die Hauptquelle unseres Wissens sind, der "Sokrates" eigene Gedanken ausspricht oder aber dem Denken Platos als Sprachrohr dient. Ein Hauptinhalt der Dissertation ist es nun, für dies Problem eine Lösung zu entwickeln. Als Schlüsselgedanke dient dabei die Annahme, daß Sokrates selbst die ihm von Romantikern zugeschriebene Auffassung der "Ironie als unendliche absolute Negativität" vertreten habe, während Plato versucht, nach der so bewirkten Zerstörung des überkommenen Denksystems ein neues aufzubauen. Zugleich wird jedoch der Sinn dieser Auffassung der Ironie in der Weltgeschichte des Geistes gegen die nihilistische Auffassung bei radikalen Romantikern neu bestimmt: "Dies eben ist die Bedeutung des Sokrates, welche von Hegel und erst recht vom Hegelianismus nicht erkannt worden ist, daß er mit der absoluten unendlichen Negativität der Ironie eine Beruhigung und Erstarrung des Humanen in substantieller Sittlichkeit und erst recht in objektiver Wissenschaft verhindert, daß er im Humanen die mit Tod versehrende Krise aufdeckt, in der allein Freiheit und Persönlichkeit vor einem Untergang im allgemeinen geschichtlichen Dasein bewahrt werden können. Die tiefe Not des Humanen aber ist es, daß diese Ironie, wenn sie ... das Letzte des Menschen zu werden beginnt, das Verhältnis zu Leben und Wirklichkeit zerstört. Darum wird es für Kierkegaard nötig, das Ja zum Ironiker Sokrates durch ein Nein zur dämonisierten Ironie der radikalen Romantik zu ergänzen. Ironie muß beherrscht werden, wenn sie dem Humanen ihren Dienst tun soll." (E. Hirsch in der Einleitung) Die richtig verstandene Ironie widerlegt alle Versuche des Menschen, seiner Existenz aus eigener geistiger Kraft einen letzten Sinn zu erringen; daß er diesen Sinn nur als Gabe Gottes empfangen kann, wird angedeutet. - Die Di
Practice in Christianity by Søren Kierkegaard( Book )

12 editions published between 1991 and 1998 in English and held by 662 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

Three discourses on imagined occasions by Søren Kierkegaard( Book )

9 editions published between 1993 and 2009 in English and held by 532 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
Without authority by Søren Kierkegaard( Book )

10 editions published between 1997 and 2009 in English and held by 529 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Without authority," a phrase Kierkegaard repeatedly applied to himself and his writings, is an appropriate common title for this volume of five short works that in various ways deal with the concept and practice of authority. The Lily in the Field and the Bird of the Air presupposes the teaching authority of the lily and the bird, derived from the authoritative Gospel injunction to learn from them. Two Ethical-Religious Essays deal with the limits of authorization for a witness to the truth and with the contrast between the authority of the genius and that of the apostle
