Philosophical fragments, or, A fragment of philosophy by Søren Kierkegaard( Book )
27 editions published between 1962 and 1987 in English and held by 2,123 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 1,677 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 )

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

Kierkegaard's Concluding unscientific postscript by Søren Kierkegaard( Book )
13 editions published in 1992 in English and held by 732 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 )
10 editions published between 1991 and 1998 in English and held by 689 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
The Corsair affair : and articles related to the writings by Søren Kierkegaard( Book )
8 editions published between 1981 and 2009 in English and held by 640 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Im religionsphilosophischen Denken Kierkegaards spielt die Herausarbeitung verschiedener Typen ethischer und religiöser "Lebensanschauungen" oder "Existenzsphären" eine große Rolle. In seinem letzten rein religionsphilosophischen Werk, der "Abschließenden unwissenschaftlichen Nachschrift" (16. Abteilung der "Gesammelten Werke"), unterschied er vier "Existenzsphären": die "aesthetische", die schon im I. Teil von Entweder-Oder in großer Vielfalt dargestellt wurde, eine "ethische" mit nur geringem religiösen Tiefgang und zwei Stufen religiöser Vertiefung; deren erste scheitert bei ihrem Ringen um ein Gottesverhältnis an dem damit verbundenen, nicht verwundenen Schuldbewußtsein und bleibt in Schwermut gefangen; erst auf der zweiten, "paradox-religiösen" Stufe wird diese Krise im Erfahren der versöhnenden Gnade Gottes überwunden. Doch ist es der Denkweise Kierkegaards gemäß, Typen ethisch-religiöser Einstellungen und Fehlentwicklungen nicht nur abstrakt-begrifflich abzuleiten, sondern in der Vielfalt des Lebens dichterisch darzustellen; das letzte, sehr umfassende Werk mit diesem Ziel sind die "Stadien auf des Lebens Weg". In der ersten der drei hier zusammengefaßten Schriften läßt er dichterische Gestalten vor allem aus seinen früheren Werken auf einem "Gastmahl der Pseudonyme" Reden auf "das Weib" und "die Liebe" halten und führt so verschiedene Spielarten "aesthetischer Lebensanschauung" vor; mit seinem Wirbel geistreicher, überraschender, oft frivoler Gedanken und Einfälle wie mit dem sehr stimmungsvollen Erzählungsrahmen hat dies Werk immer wieder starken Eindruck gemacht und wird als Gegenstück zu Platos berühmtem Symposion gepriesen. Dagegen stellt er dann ein neues Loblied des aus Entweder/Oder bekannten, hier allerdings "verflachten" Gerichtsrats auf die Ehe, die er damit gegen den Spott der Pseudonyme verteidigt, - ein Musterbild einer soliden "ethischen Lebensanschauung", die jedoch tiefere religiöse Probleme kaum ahnt, wie sie gerade auch mit der Lebensbindung zweier Menschen verbunden sind. Schließlich bietet er in der "Leidensgeschichte" noch einmal ein Beispiel einer zerbrechenden Verlobung (dies Problem hatte er schon in der 1. und 5. Abteilung der "Gesammelten Werke" behandelt); sie scheitert in diesem Fall gerade daran, daß der sie durchleidende "Quidam" bei seinem Ringen mit solchen religiösen Problemen in Schwermut gefangen bleibt. Diese Darstellung kommt dem tatsächlichen Erleben Kierkegaards beim Zerbrechen seiner Verlobung sehr viel näher als die beiden früheren, enthält sogar ein Originaldokument seiner eigenen Geschichte, wenn auch der dargestellte "Quidam" das eigentliche religiöse Erleben Kierkegaards nicht erreicht. Besonders gerühmt werden sechs Einlagestücke, in denen Kierkegaard verschiedene Arten religiös bedingter Schwermut dichterisch eindrucksvoll darstellt. Schließlich bietet der fingierte Verfasser dieser "Leidensgeschichte", Frater Taciturnus, der sie in einem umfangreichen Nachwort kommentiert, selbst ein Beispiel eines Menschen, der sich scharfsinnig um die Probleme religiöser Existenz und die Möglichkeiten ihrer dichterischen Darstellung bemüht, jedoch mit der eigenen Existenz an ihrer Grenze stehen bleibt. Seine Gedanken dürfen darum, obwohl Kierkegaard dies Pseudonym bald danach auch in persönlichen Stellungnahmen verwendet hat, nicht als Kierkegaards eigene letzte Überzeugung genommen werden. Diese findet man vielmehr in der Beichtrede der mit den "Stadien" gleichzeitig veröffentlichten "Drei Reden bei gedachten Gelegenheiten" (14. Abteilung der "Gesammelten Werke"); deren Grabrede ist zur Interpretation des Gastmahls der Pseudonyme heranzuziehen, die Traurede zur religiösen Korrektur des "Allerleis über die Ehe" des "Gerichtsrats"
Three discourses on imagined occasions by Søren Kierkegaard( Book )
10 editions published between 1992 and 2009 in English and held by 524 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 )
9 editions published between 1998 and 2009 in English and held by 519 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The occasion for The Book on Adler was the claim by Adolph P. Adler, a pastor on the island Bornholm, to have experienced a revelation in which Christ dictated a new doctrine. In revisions of the manuscript during eight years prior to Kierkegaard's death, this occasion became more a side issue and the question of authority became the central theme. After three integral versions, the larger work was "chopped into pieces" and parts included in two contemplated collections. Kierkegaard never published any of the five versions
The point of view for my work as an author; a report to history, and related writings by Søren Kierkegaard( Book )
12 editions published between 1998 and 2009 in English and held by 518 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"As a spiritual autobiography, Kierkegaard's The Point of View for My Work as an Author stands with such great works as Augustine's Confessions and Newman's Apologia pro vita sua - but with a difference. It is neither a confessional autobiography nor a defense. It is an author's story of a lifetime of writing, his understanding of the common aim and comprehensive coherence of the maze of his greatly varied pseudonymous and signed works." "Entries in the Supplement document the context and development of the writings on the authorship as a whole. In addition they disclose Kierkegaard's considerations as he wrestled with decisions about publishing the three works and other works that were "the fruit of the year 1848 ... the year of my richest productivity.""--Jacket
