    About the Author

    Søren Kierkegaard

    S ren Aabye Kierkegaard was a prolific 19th century Danish philosopher and theologian Kierkegaard strongly criticised both the Hegelianism of his time and what he saw as the empty formalities of the Church of Denmark Much of his work deals with religious themes such as faith in God, the institution of the Christian Church, Christian ethics and theology, and the emotions and feelings of individuals when faced with life choices His early work was written under various pseudonyms who present their own distinctive viewpoints in a complex dialogue.Kierkegaard left the task of discovering the meaning of his works to the reader, because the task must be made difficult, for only the difficult inspires the noble hearted.Scholars have interpreted Kierkegaard variously as an existentialist, neo orthodoxist, postmodernist, humanist, and individualist.Crossing the boundaries of philosophy, theology, psychology, and literature, he is an influential figure in contemporary thought.

      From childhood on I have been in the grip of an enormous depression, the depth of which finds its only true manifestation in the equally enormous proficiency granted me to hide it under a seeming cheerfulness and zest for life. My only joy from almost as far back as I can remember was that no one could discover how unhappy I felt; this circumstance (the equally great magnitude of my depression and of my dissimulative art) does indeed signify that I was assigned to myself and the God-relationship [...]

      A fantastic, autobiographical take on the methodology of Kierkegaard's writings. This work shows the reader Soren's plan to draw his audience into the realm of the the (truly) religious by first masqerading his message in his aesthetic writings.

      A lot of pain and misunderstanding would have been avoided if I had started with this. So, don't be like me, start with this one.

      If someone asked me for an advice where one should begin reading Kierkegaard, I would recommend him The Point of View. Kierkegaard gives a short summation of his project right here.
