Kierkegaard's thought by Gregor Malantschuk( Book )

17 editions published between 1971 and 2015 in English and Undetermined and held by 2,069 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.

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 1,840 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 1,437 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 1983 in English and held by 1,116 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The 'sickness' which Kierkegaard's book refers to as 'unto death' is resistance to this belief. It is the inclination to accept that as far as the individual is concerned, death is indeed the end. Now why should Kierkegaard want to call that a sickness? After all, even in his own time there must have been people strong both in might and body who rejected the Christian teaching of sin and salvation, and who faced what they accepted as total extinction with equanimity. And today, of course, even in societies that once proudly professed Christian principles, the rejection of Christian belief--or at least the failure unequivocally to accept it--is the rule rather than the exception. So in what sense can the denial of Christian dogma constitute an illness?
Two ages : the age of revolution and the present age : a literary review by Søren Kierkegaard( Book )

18 editions published between 1977 and 2009 in English and held by 1,033 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 )

22 editions published between 1985 and 1987 in English and held by 941 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
Either/or by Søren Kierkegaard( Book )

17 editions published between 1959 and 1990 in English and held by 940 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]

The moment and late writings by Søren Kierkegaard( Book )

12 editions published between 1998 and 2009 in English and held by 887 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
Eighteen upbuilding discourses by Søren Kierkegaard( Book )

18 editions published between 1990 and 1997 in English and Chinese and held by 868 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

Without authority by Søren Kierkegaard( Book )

15 editions published between 1997 and 2009 in English and held by 743 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 )

15 editions published between 1992 and 2009 in English and held by 734 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
Upbuilding discourses in various spirits by Søren Kierkegaard( Book )

15 editions published between 1993 and 2009 in English and held by 730 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."
Kierkegaard's Concluding unscientific postscript by Søren Kierkegaard( Book )

10 editions published in 1992 in English and Undetermined and held by 729 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
