Product Description

Product Description

Philosophy for busy people. Read a succinct account of the philosophy of Kierkegaard in just one hour.

Although Kierkegaard was not a philosopher in the academic sense, he produced what many people expect of philosophy. He didn’t write about the world, he wrote about life – how we live and how we choose to live, particularly focussing on the individual and the notion of his (or her) existence. Kierkegaard was one of the founders of existentialism, regarding the ‘existing being’ as a purely subjective entity that lay beyond the reach of reason, logic, philosophical systems, theology and even ‘the pretences of psychology’, yet simultaneously remaining the source of all these subjects.

Here is a concise, expert account of Kierkegaard’s life and philosophical ideas – entertainingly written and easy to understand. Also included are selections from Kierkegaard’s work, suggested further reading, and chronologies that place Kierkegaard in the context of the broader scheme of philosophy.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good quick summary 21 July 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I knew nothing about Kierkegaard before I read this but as someone interested in existentialism I've been wanting to know something about him for a while. Clearly, I am no expert after such a brief introduction but it has given me a small flavour of what the man was about. Not sure I want to read any of his writings - I'll stick with Nietzsche, but still worth knowing a little background to his views.
