The Danish philosopher Soren Kierkegaard was
one of the most original thinkers of the 19th
Century – and one of the most enigmatic men
who ever walked the Earth. Philosophically, his
attack on social and religious complacency and
his single-handed assault on traditional Western
philosophy generated a crisis that produced a
radically new way of philosophizing and made
him the founder of the school that would later be
called Existentialism. Kierkegaard For Beginners
explains, plainly and simply, the great Danish
thinker’s obsession with the particularity of human
existence as well as his demonstration of how the creation of an authentic new
kind of individual is possible.
