This anthology is the first attempt to present a rounded picture of
'Kierkegaard as a philosopher' in English. After an introduction
explaining how Kierkegaard viewed the task of 'becoming a
philosopher', there are generous extracts from the "Concept of
Irony" and the great pseudonymous works: " Either/Or," "Fear and
Trembling," "Repetition,"" Philosophical Fragments," "The Concept
of Anxiety," "Prefaces,"" Johannes Climacus" and "Concluding
Unscientific Postscript," Kierkegaard's own attempts to summarize
the significance of his writings are also included, so that readers
have the opportunity to make up their own minds about the adequacy
of his retrospective accounting.
The Kierkegaard who emerges from these pages is not only a
penetrating analyst of temporality, individuality, and irony, but
also a lithe, witty and versatile stylist. He is probably one of
the greatest writers in the philosophical tradition, and surely one
of the most humorous.
The anthology makes use of a range of classic translations, and
includes new translations by Jane Chamberlain and Jonathan Ree,
explanatory introductions, an index and a glossary.
