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

23 editions published between 1962 and 2009 in English and held by 1,658 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

Kierkegaard's thought by Gregor Malantschuk( Book )

17 editions published between 1971 and 2015 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,193 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.

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

20 editions published between 1962 and 1974 in English and held by 1,170 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
Fear and trembling, and the sickness unto death by Søren Kierkegaard( Book )

16 editions published between 1983 and 1992 in English and held by 1,027 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The two books comprised in this volume are in greater demand than any other works of Kierkegaard. This preference is a credit to the public taste, for Kierkegaard himself called them "the most perfect books I have written," though in this commendation he included The Concept of Dread, and later stretched it to include Training in Christianity
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 996 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, Johannes Climacus by Søren Kierkegaard( Book )

20 editions published between 1985 and 1987 in English and held by 902 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

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

24 editions published between 1992 and 2015 in English and held by 740 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 constant reference to Socrates by Søren Kierkegaard( Book )

21 editions published between 1988 and 1992 in English and held by 705 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
Eighteen upbuilding discourses by Søren Kierkegaard( Book )

16 editions published between 1990 and 1997 in English and Chinese and held by 703 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
Stages on life's way by Søren Kierkegaard( Book )

17 editions published between 1988 and 1991 in English and held by 677 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Stages on Life's Way, the sequel to Either/Or, is an intensely poetic example of Kierkegaard's vision of the three stages, or spheres, of existence: the esthetic, the ethical, and the religious. With characteristic love for mystification, he presents the work as a bundle of documents fallen by chance into the hands of "Hilarius Bookbinder," who prepared them for printing. The book begins with a banquet scene patterned on Plato's Symposium. (George Brandes maintained that "one must recognize with amazement that it holds its own in this comparison.") Next is a discourse by "Judge William" in praise of marriage "in answer to objections." The remainder of the volume, almost two-thirds of the whole, is the diary of a young man, discovered by "Frater Taciturnus," who was deeply in love but felt compelled to break his engagement. The work closes with a letter to the reader from Taciturnus on the three "existence-spheres" represented by the three parts of the book
Practice in Christianity by Søren Kierkegaard( Book )

12 editions published between 1991 and 1998 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
Without authority by Søren Kierkegaard( Book )

13 editions published between 1997 and 2009 in English and held by 539 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
Three discourses on imagined occasions by Søren Kierkegaard( Book )

14 editions published between 1992 and 2009 in English and held by 531 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
The moment and late writings by Søren Kierkegaard( Book )

11 editions published between 1998 and 2009 in English and held by 498 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
