These two complementary works give the reader a unique insight into the breadth and substance of Kierkegaard's thought. One reads like a novel and the other a Platonic dialogue but both concern the nature of love, faith, and happiness. These are the first translations to convey the literary quality and philosophical precision of the originals.

Description

These two complementary works give the reader a unique insight into the breadth and substance of Kierkegaard's thought. One reads like a novel and the other a Platonic dialogue but both concern the nature of love, faith, and happiness. These are the first translations to convey the literary quality and philosophical precision of the originals.

  • These two short works are a perfect introduction to Kierkegaard's philosophy: playful and profound, they explore notions of love and time, selfhood and Christianity, and pave the way for his later major works.
  • These are the first English translations to convey both the philosophical precision of the originals and their literary quality. Fluent, lively, and attractive, they are based on the most accurate Danish edition of Kierkegaard's collected works.
  • Edward F. Mooney's Introduction deftly guides the reader through Kierkegaard's key arguments and concepts and does not presuppose a philosophical or theological background.
  • Helpful notes identify references and allusions and tease out areas of difficulty.
