Book description

Søren Kierkegaard (1813-1855) remains one of the most enigmatic, captivating, and elusive thinkers in the history of European thought.

The Kierkegaardian Mind provides a comprehensive survey of his work, not only placing it in its historical context but also exploring its contemporary significance. Comprising thirty-eight chapters by a team of international contributors, this handbook is divided into eight parts covering the following themes:

  • Methodology
  • Ethics
  • Aesthetics
  • Philosophy of Religion and Theology
  • Philosophy of Mind
  • Anthropology
  • Epistemology
  • Politics.

Essential reading for students and researchers in philosophy, Kierkegaard?s work is central to the study of political philosophy, literature, existentialist thought, and theology.
