By A Customer
This review is from: Kierkegaard (Past Masters) (Paperback)
This is an excellent introduction not only to Kierkegaard, but to the subsequent existentialist movement, concurrent philosophies and progressive influences on Kierkegaard's thought. It convincingly argues the latter were a combination of biographical, psychological and political and philosophical reactionism. For anybody interested in how existentialism developed and was arguably later corrupted, this book provides an intelligent and clearly written account. Strongly recommended.
