Most widely held works by Søren Kierkegaard
Fear and trembling ; and, the sickness unto death by Søren Kierkegaard( Book )

372 editions published between 1843 and 2018 in 25 languages and held by 6,896 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
Either/or by Søren Kierkegaard( Book )

635 editions published between 1800 and 2019 in 23 languages and held by 6,514 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 concept of anxiety : a simple psychologically orienting deliberation on the dogmatic issue of hereditary sin by Søren Kierkegaard( Book )

307 editions published between 1844 and 2019 in 15 languages and held by 4,234 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This edition replaces the earlier translation by Walter Lowrie that appeared under the title The Concept of Dread. Along with The Sickness unto Death, the work reflects from a psychological point of view Søren Kierkegaard's longstanding concern with the Socratic maxim, "Know yourself." His ontological view of the self as a synthesis of body, soul, and spirit has influenced philosophers such as Heidegger and Sartre, theologians such as Jaspers and Tillich, and psychologists such as Rollo May. In The Concept of Anxiety, Kierkegaard describes the nature and forms of anxiety, placing the domain of anxiety within the mental-emotional states of human existence that precede the qualitative leap of faith to the spiritual state of Christianity. It is through anxiety that the self becomes aware of its dialectical relation between the finite and the infinite, the temporal and the eternal."--Publisher description
Works of love : some Christian reflections in the form of discourses by Søren Kierkegaard( Book )

150 editions published between 1847 and 2013 in 6 languages and held by 3,311 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
Training in Christianity : and, the Edifying discourse which 'accompanied' it by Søren Kierkegaard( Book )

191 editions published between 1850 and 2016 in 9 languages and held by 3,295 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
A Kierkegaard anthology by Søren Kierkegaard( Book )

62 editions published between 1936 and 1981 in 3 languages and held by 2,612 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The selections in this book have been chosen, first, with a view to the only kind of reading which the editor of an anthology has any right to expect; but secondly, in the hope that possibly a few persons may read it through from beginning to end. So read, it gives a picture of Kierkegaard's intellectual and spiritual development from the age of twenty-one (the date of the first passage from the Journals) until his death a little over twenty years later. This picture is traced by the hand of S.K. himself in the excerpts taken from his various works and arranged (with one or two exceptions) in chronological order
Philosophical fragments, or, A fragment of philosophy by Søren Kierkegaard( Book )

134 editions published between 1865 and 2016 in 5 languages and held by 2,297 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
Concluding unscientific postscript to Philosophical fragments by Søren Kierkegaard( Book )

128 editions published between 1874 and 2019 in 11 languages and held by 2,044 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Kierkegaard's Concluding Unscientific Postscript is a classic of existential literature. It concludes the first and richest phase of Kierkegaard's pseudonymous authorship and is the text that philosophers look to first when attempting to define Kierkegaard's own philosophy. Familiar Kierkegaardian themes are introduced in the work, including truth as subjectivity, indirect communication, the leap, and the impossibility of forming a philosophical system for human existence. The Postscript sums up the aims of the preceding pseudonymous works and opens the way to the next part of Kierkegaard's increasingly tempestuous life: it can thus be seen as a cornerstone of his philosophical thought. This volume offers the work in a new and accessible translation by Alastair Hannay, together with an introduction that sets the work in its philosophical and historical contexts

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

46 editions published between 1941 and 1974 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,830 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Besides a sense of personal loss at the death of David F. Swenson on February 11, 1940, I felt dismay that he had left unfinished his translation of the Unscientific Postscript. I had longed to see it published among the first of Kierkegaard's works in English. In the spring of 1935 it did not seem exorbitant to hope that it might be ready for the printer by the end of that year. For in March I learned from Professor Swenson that he had years before "done about two thirds of a rough translation." In 1937/38 he took a sabbatical leave from his university for the sake of finishing this work. Yet after all it was not finished- partly because Professor Swenson was already incapacitated by the illness which eventually resulted in his death; but also because he aimed at a degree of perfection which hardly can be reached by a translator. At one time he expressed to me his suspicion that perhaps, as in the translation of Kant's philosophy, it might require the cooperation of many scholars during several generations before the translation of Kierkegaard's terminology could be definitely settled. I hailed with joy this new apprehension, which promised a speedy conclusion of the work, and in the words of Luther I urged him to "sin boldly."--Editor's pref., p. [ix]
Kierkegaard's attack upon "Christendom," 1854-1855 by Søren Kierkegaard( Book )

Discourses at the Communion on Fridays by Søren Kierkegaard( )

10 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 1,647 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Søren Kierkegaard's 13 communion discourses constitute a distinct genre among the various forms of religious writing composed by Kierkegaard. Originally published at different times and places, Kierkegaard himself believed that these discourses served as a unifying element in his work and were crucial for understanding his religious thought and philosophy as a whole. Written in an intensely personal liturgical context, the communion discourses prepare the reader for participation in this rite by emphasizing the appropriate posture for forgiveness of sins and confession."--Publisher's description
Purity of heart is to will one thing : spiritual preparation for the office of confession by Søren Kierkegaard( Book )

48 editions published between 1938 and 2010 in English and held by 1,632 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Although this little book (it can be called an occasional address, yet without having the occasion which produces the speaker and gives him authority, or the occasion which produces the reader and makes him eager to learn) is like a fantasy, like a dream by day as it confronts the relationships of actuality: yet it is not without assurance and not without hope of accomplishing its object. It is in search of that solitary "individual," to whom it wholly abandons itself, by whom it wishes to be received as if it had arisen within his own heart; that solitary "individual" whom with joy and gratitude I call my reader; that solitary "individual" who reads willingly and slowly, who reads over and over again, and who reads aloud- for his own sake. If it finds him, then in the distance of the separation the understanding is perfect, if he retains for himself both the distance and the understanding in the inwardness of appropriation
Christian discourses, and the lilies of the field and the birds of the air, and Three discourses at the communion on Fridays by Søren Kierkegaard( Book )

35 editions published between 1939 and 2016 in English and held by 1,623 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The edition includes "Christian Discourses," "The Lilies of the Field and the Birds of the Air" and "Three Discourses at the Communion on Fridays."
The concept of irony : with constant reference to Socrates by Søren Kierkegaard( Book )

30 editions published between 1862 and 1992 in 3 languages and held by 1,498 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The sickness unto death : a Christian psychological exposition for upbuilding and awakening by Søren Kierkegaard( Book )

24 editions published between 1941 and 2013 in English and held by 1,360 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A companion piece to The Concept of Anxiety , this work continues Søren Kierkegaard's radical and comprehensive analysis of human nature in a spectrum of possibilities of existence. Present here is a remarkable combination of the insight of the poet and the contemplation of the philosopher. In The Sickness unto Death , Kierkegaard moves beyond anxiety on the mental-emotional level to the spiritual level, where--in contact with the eternal--anxiety becomes despair. Both anxiety and despair reflect the misrelation that arises in the self when the elements of the synthesis--the inf
Two ages : the age of revolution and the present age : a literary review by Søren Kierkegaard( Book )

17 editions published between 1977 and 2009 in English and held by 1,253 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

Repetition ; and, Philosophical crumbs by Søren Kierkegaard( )

11 editions published in 2009 in English and Danish and held by 1,192 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"'The love of repetition is in truth the only happy love.' So says Constantine Constantius on the first page of Kierkegaard's Repetition. Life itself, according to Kierkegaard's pseudonymous narrator, is a repetition, and in the course of this witty, playful work Constantius explores the nature of love and happiness, the passing of time and the importance of moving forward (and backward). The ironically entitled Philosophical Crumbs pursues the investigation of faith and love and their tense relationship with reason"--Back cover
The sickness unto death by Søren Kierkegaard( Book )

168 editions published between 1838 and 2019 in 7 languages and held by 1,190 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Man is spirit. But what is spirit? Spirit is the self. But what is the self? The self is a relation which relates itself to its own self, or it is that in the relation [which accounts for it] that the relation relates itself to its own self; the self is not the relation but [consists in the fact] that the relation relates itself to its own self. Man is a synthesis of the infinite and the finite, of the temporal and the eternal, of freedom and necessity; in short, it is a synthesis
