  • A Kierkegaard Anthology


    A Kierkegaard Anthology is a collection of works and excerpts by the 19th-century Danish philosopher Soren Kierkegaard. Kierkegaard was a religious existentialist who believed that private Christian faith was the highest path for man and the only salvation from despair. Kierkegaard wrote under a number of pen names, writing from alternate perspectives such as the hedonistic aesthetic and the dutiful ethical man to examine different life philosophies, their advantages and fundamental flaws. Kierkegaard was critical of state religion, idealism and science, instead centering his philosophy on subjectivity and faith.
