Kierkegaard's thought by Gregor Malantschuk( Book )

14 editions published between 1971 and 2015 in English and Undetermined and held by 2,161 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 )

31 editions published between 1962 and 2009 in English and held by 1,940 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 )

15 editions published between 1983 and 1992 in English and held by 1,634 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 essential Kierkegaard by Søren Kierkegaard( Book )

16 editions published between 2000 and 2015 in English and held by 1,626 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Either/or by Søren Kierkegaard( Book )

20 editions published between 1987 and 2013 in English and held by 1,425 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This work, a chapter from Kierkegaard's first major volume, Either/Or, springs from his relationship with his fiancee, Regine Olsen. Kierkegaard fell in love with the young woman, ten years his junior, proposed to her, but then broke off their engagement a year later. This event affected Kierkegaard profoundly. Olsen became a muse for him, and a flood of volumes resulted. His attempt to set right, in writing, what he feels was a mistake in his relationship with Olsen taught him the secret of "indirect communication." The Seducer's Diary, then, becomes Kierkegaard's attempt to portray himself as a scoundrel and thus make their break easier for her." "Matters of marriage, the ethical versus the aesthetic, dread, and, increasingly, the severities of Christianity are pondered by Kierkegaard in this intense work."--BOOK JACKET
The sickness unto death : a Christian psychological exposition for upbuilding and awakening by Søren Kierkegaard( Book )

21 editions published between 1941 and 2013 in English and held by 1,353 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 )

15 editions published between 1977 and 2009 in English and held by 1,246 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 )

15 editions published between 1985 and 1987 in English and held by 1,143 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 concept of existence by Gregor Malantschuk( )

14 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 1,068 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Eighteen upbuilding discourses by Søren Kierkegaard( Book )

18 editions published between 1990 and 1997 in English and Chinese and held by 974 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
The moment and late writings by Søren Kierkegaard( Book )

12 editions published between 1998 and 2009 in English and held by 967 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
Training in Christianity : and, the Edifying discourse which 'accompanied' it by Søren Kierkegaard( Book )

14 editions published between 1991 and 1998 in English and held by 948 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
Stages on life's way : studies by various persons by Søren Kierkegaard( Book )

16 editions published between 1988 and 2009 in English and held by 944 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The controversial Kierkegaard by Gregor Malantschuk( )

5 editions published between 1980 and 2010 in English and held by 888 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A widespread misapprehension of Søren Kierkegaard is that his concern for the individual and the individual's relation to the divine excluded any significant attention to social and political problems. In this volume Gregor Malantschuk, before his death one of the world's foremost Kierkegaard scholars, demonstrates the social dimension of Kierkegaard's thought – the relation between the individual and the state, the distinctive and complementary character of man and woman, his possible acquaintance with Marxist thought. The book shows Kierkegaard as an astute observer of the social and political situation of his time and underscores the differences between his presuppositions and those of the present day. The book is a translation of Den kontroversielle Kierkegaard together with two additional essays by Malantschuk
Without authority by Søren Kierkegaard( Book )

14 editions published between 1997 and 2009 in English and held by 850 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
Upbuilding discourses in various spirits by Søren Kierkegaard( Book )

16 editions published between 1993 and 2009 in English and held by 834 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."
The point of view by Søren Kierkegaard( Book )

17 editions published between 1998 and 2009 in English and held by 805 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
