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

37 editions published between 1941 and 1974 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,576 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]
A short life of Kierkegaard by Walter Lowrie( Book )

80 editions published between 1942 and 2017 in 5 languages and held by 1,542 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This little book, being simply a biography, may perhaps be more lucid than the other, in which it was sometimes difficult to see the forest for the trees. Having devoted myself for a month last year to the unaccustomed task of writing a mystery story, I may perhaps have learned to make the big events in S.K's life more thrilling than they were. And perhaps after spending the last six years translating the greater part of S.K's works I have learned to know him better than I did at first. At all events, this little book is not merely an abstract or condensation of the bigger one. It has been written afresh from beginning to end, and barely half a page here and there has been copied- except, of course, the quotations from S.K., and they have been carefully revised
Fear and trembling ; and, the sickness unto death by Søren Kierkegaard( Book )

12 editions published between 1941 and 2013 in English and held by 1,374 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
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 )

24 editions published between 1939 and 2016 in English and held by 1,339 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."
Stages on life's way by Søren Kierkegaard( Book )

20 editions published between 1940 and 1971 in English and held by 1,166 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
A short life of Kierkegaard : with Lowrie's essay how Kierkegaard got into english and a new introduction by Alastair Hannay by Walter Lowrie( )

9 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 1,109 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"A small, insignificant-looking intellectual with absurdly long legs, Søren Kierkegaard (1813-1855) was a veritable Hans Christian Andersen caricature of a man. A strange combination of witty cosmopolite and melancholy introvert, he spent years writing under a series of fantastical pseudonyms, lavishing all the splendor of his magnificent mind on a seldom-appreciative world. He had a tragic love affair with a young girl, was dominated by an unforgettable Old Testament father, fought a sensational literary duel with a popular satiric magazine, and died in the midst of a violent quarrel with the state church for which he had once studied theology. Yet this iconoclast produced a number of brilliant books that have profoundly influenced modern thought
Repetition : an essay in experimental psychology by Søren Kierkegaard( Book )

26 editions published between 1941 and 1964 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,101 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Either/or by Søren Kierkegaard( Book )

18 editions published between 1944 and 1999 in English and held by 992 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]
On authority and revelation : the book on Adler, or A Cycle of ethico-religious essays by Søren Kierkegaard( Book )

17 editions published between 1955 and 1966 in English and held by 940 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The point of view for my work as an author; a report to history, and related writings by Sören Aabye Kierkegaard( Book )

14 editions published between 1939 and 1970 in English and held by 927 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

For self-examination ; Judge for yourself! by Søren Kierkegaard( Book )

26 editions published between 1940 and 1979 in English and Undetermined and held by 851 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

For Self-Examination and its companion piece Judge for Yourself! are the culmination of Søren Kierkegaard's "second authorship," which followed his Concluding Unscientific Postscript. Among the simplest and most readily comprehended of Kierkegaard's books, the two works are part of the signed direct communications, as distinguished from his earlier pseudonymous writings. The lucidity and pithiness, and the earnestness and power, of For Self-Examination and Judge for Yourself! are enhanced when, as Kierkegaard requested, they are read aloud. They contain the well-known passages on Socrates' defense speech, how to read, the lover's letter, the royal coachman and the carriage team, and the painter's relation to his painting. The aim of awakening and inward deepening is signaled by the opening section on Socrates in For Self-Examination and is pursued in the context of the relations of Christian ideality, grace, and response. The secondary aim, a critique of the established order, links the works to the final polemical writings that appear later after a four-year period of silence

The sickness unto death by Søren Kierkegaard( Book )

15 editions published between 1941 and 1975 in English and held by 498 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
The concept of anxiety : a simple psychologically orienting deliberation on the dogmatic issue of hereditary sin by Søren Kierkegaard( Book )

41 editions published between 1944 and 1974 in English and held by 466 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
