Works of love : some Christian reflections in the form of discourses by Søren Kierkegaard( Book )

24 editions published between 1962 and 2009 in English and held by 1,654 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The various kinds and conditions of love are a common theme for Kierkegaard, beginning with his early Either/Or, through "The Diary of the Seducer" and Judge William's eulogy on married love, to his last work, on the changelessness of God's love. Works of Love, the midpoint in the series, is also the monumental high point, because of its penetrating, illuminating analysis of the forms and sources of love. Love as feeling and mood is distinguished from works of love, love of the lovable from love of the unlovely, preferential love from love as the royal law, love as mutual egotism from triangular love, and erotic love from self-giving love." "This work is marked by Kierkegaard's Socratic awareness of the reader, both as the center of awakened understanding and as the initiator of action. Written to be read aloud, this book conveys a keenness of thought and an insightful, poetic imagination that make such an attentive approach richly rewarding. Works of Love not only serves as an excellent place to begin exploring the writings of Kierkegaard but also rewards many rereadings."--Jacket

Eine zu Kierkegaards Zeit hochgeschätzte Schriftstellerin, der Öffentlichkeit nur bekannt als "Verfasser der Alltagsgeschichte", hatte im Jahr 1845 eine Novelle "Zwei Zeitalter" veröffentlicht, in der sie die Zeit der französischen Revolution mit ihrem opferbereiten Idealismus, aber auch ihrer moralischen Unbedenklichkeit der Gegenwart gegenüberstellte, die das Anstößige der Revolutionszeit vermeidet, der aber auch deren Schwung und Großzügigkeit fehlt. "Die Beschäftigung mit der so gestellten geschichtlichen Frage zwang Kierkegaard zu einer tieferen Besinnung über den Geist und die Entwicklungsrichtung seines eignen Zeitalters. Er entdeckte dabei als erster europäischer Schriftsteller, reichlich ein Menschenalter vor Nietzsche, daß allen Anzeichen nach ein Zeitalter der Nivellierung aller Lebensunterschiede im Heraufzuge über Europa sei, und daß das Verhältnis des Einzelnen zur Gemeinschaft durch diese Nivellierung grundstürzend sich verändern werde. Er hat, als dann die Revolution von 1848 ihm die ersten Bestätigungen seiner Analyse des Zeitalters zu bringen schien, auf diese seine Entdeckung die ausgereifte Gestalt seiner Lehre von "dem Einzelnen" aufgebaut. Man wird heute, reichlich hundert Jahre nach dem Erscheinen der kleinen Schrift, die auf die Analyse des Zeitalters sich beziehenden Partien nicht ohne Verwunderung über den unerhörten Scharfblick dieses Eingängers lesen." (E. Hirsch in der Einleitung) - Im Anhang sind aus den Tagebüchern Kierkegaards mitgeteilt "Reflexionen über Christentum und Naturwissenschaft", die wegen des ausgeprägten wissenstheoretischen Standpunktes seiner religionsphilosophischen Schriften von Interesse sind, sowie das Fragment eines letzten rein dichterischen Entwurfs, der "Lobrede auf das Spätjahr"

Philosophical fragments, Johannes Climacus by Søren Kierkegaard( Book )

19 editions published between 1962 and 1987 in English and held by 902 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Danish philosopher's influential work, outlining the distinction between Socratic irony and the leap of faith required for Christian belief, argues that freedom, which cannot be understood or proved, is the necessary condition for Christianity. Also includes the unfinished narrative "Johannes Climacus" in which a man sets out to doubt everything - a critique of Cartesian and Hegelian approaches to philosophy
Kierkegaard's Concluding unscientific postscript by Søren Kierkegaard( Book )

13 editions published in 1992 in English and held by 731 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In Philosophical Fragments the pseudonymous author Johannes Climacus explored the question: What is required in order to go beyond Socratic recollection of eternal ideas already possessed by the learner? Written as an afterword to this work, Concluding Unscientific Postscript is on one level a philosophical jest, yet on another it is Climacus' characterization of the subjective thinker's relation to the truth of Christianity. At once ironic, humorous, and polemical, this work takes on the unscientific form of a mimical-pathetical-dialectical compilation of ideas. Whereas the movement in the earlier pseudonymous writings is away from the aesthetic, the movement in Postscript is away from speculative thought. Kierkegaard intended Postscript to be his concluding work as an author.The subsequent second authorship after The Corsair Affair made Postscript the turning point in the entire authorship. Part One of the text volume examines the truth of Christianity as an objective issue, Part Two the subjective issue of what is involved for the individual in becoming a Christian, and the volume ends with an addendum in which Kierkegaard acknowledges and explains his relation to the pseudonymous authors and their writings. The second volume contains the scholarly apparatus, including a key to references and selected entries from Kierkegaard's journals and papers

Practice in Christianity by Søren Kierkegaard( Book )

11 editions published between 1991 and 1998 in English and held by 656 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Of the many works he wrote during 1848, Kierkegaard specified Practice in Christianity as "the most perfect and truest thing." In his reflections on such topics as Christ's invitation to the burdened, the imitatio Christi, the possibility of offense, and the exalted Christ, he takes as his theme the requirement of Christian ideality in the context of divine grace. Addressing clergy and laity alike, Kierkegaard asserts the need for institutional and personal admission of the accommodation of Christianity to the culture and to the individual misuse of grace. As a corrective defense, the book is an attempt to find, ideally, a basis for the established order, which would involve the order's ability to acknowledge the Christian requirement, confess its own distance from it, and resort to grace for support in its continued existence. At the same time the book can be read as the beginning of Kierkegaard's attack on Christendom. Because of the high ideality of the contents and in order to prevent the misunderstanding that he himself represented that ideality, Kierkegaard writes under a new pseudonym, Anti-Climacus.--From publisher's description
The Corsair affair : and articles related to the writings by Søren Kierkegaard( Book )

7 editions published between 1981 and 2009 in English and held by 637 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Im religionsphilosophischen Denken Kierkegaards spielt die Herausarbeitung verschiedener Typen ethischer und religiöser "Lebensanschauungen" oder "Existenzsphären" eine große Rolle. In seinem letzten rein religionsphilosophischen Werk, der "Abschließenden unwissenschaftlichen Nachschrift" (16. Abteilung der "Gesammelten Werke"), unterschied er vier "Existenzsphären": die "aesthetische", die schon im I. Teil von Entweder-Oder in großer Vielfalt dargestellt wurde, eine "ethische" mit nur geringem religiösen Tiefgang und zwei Stufen religiöser Vertiefung; deren erste scheitert bei ihrem Ringen um ein Gottesverhältnis an dem damit verbundenen, nicht verwundenen Schuldbewußtsein und bleibt in Schwermut gefangen; erst auf der zweiten, "paradox-religiösen" Stufe wird diese Krise im Erfahren der versöhnenden Gnade Gottes überwunden. Doch ist es der Denkweise Kierkegaards gemäß, Typen ethisch-religiöser Einstellungen und Fehlentwicklungen nicht nur abstrakt-begrifflich abzuleiten, sondern in der Vielfalt des Lebens dichterisch darzustellen; das letzte, sehr umfassende Werk mit diesem Ziel sind die "Stadien auf des Lebens Weg". In der ersten der drei hier zusammengefaßten Schriften läßt er dichterische Gestalten vor allem aus seinen früheren Werken auf einem "Gastmahl der Pseudonyme" Reden auf "das Weib" und "die Liebe" halten und führt so verschiedene Spielarten "aesthetischer Lebensanschauung" vor; mit seinem Wirbel geistreicher, überraschender, oft frivoler Gedanken und Einfälle wie mit dem sehr stimmungsvollen Erzählungsrahmen hat dies Werk immer wieder starken Eindruck gemacht und wird als Gegenstück zu Platos berühmtem Symposion gepriesen. Dagegen stellt er dann ein neues Loblied des aus Entweder/Oder bekannten, hier allerdings "verflachten" Gerichtsrats auf die Ehe, die er damit gegen den Spott der Pseudonyme verteidigt, - ein Musterbild einer soliden "ethischen Lebensanschauung", die jedoch tiefere religiöse Probleme kaum ahnt, wie sie gerade auch mit der Lebensbindung zweier Menschen verbunden sind. Schließlich bietet er in der "Leidensgeschichte" noch einmal ein Beispiel einer zerbrechenden Verlobung (dies Problem hatte er schon in der 1. und 5. Abteilung der "Gesammelten Werke" behandelt); sie scheitert in diesem Fall gerade daran, daß der sie durchleidende "Quidam" bei seinem Ringen mit solchen religiösen Problemen in Schwermut gefangen bleibt. Diese Darstellung kommt dem tatsächlichen Erleben Kierkegaards beim Zerbrechen seiner Verlobung sehr viel näher als die beiden früheren, enthält sogar ein Originaldokument seiner eigenen Geschichte, wenn auch der dargestellte "Quidam" das eigentliche religiöse Erleben Kierkegaards nicht erreicht. Besonders gerühmt werden sechs Einlagestücke, in denen Kierkegaard verschiedene Arten religiös bedingter Schwermut dichterisch eindrucksvoll darstellt. Schließlich bietet der fingierte Verfasser dieser "Leidensgeschichte", Frater Taciturnus, der sie in einem umfangreichen Nachwort kommentiert, selbst ein Beispiel eines Menschen, der sich scharfsinnig um die Probleme religiöser Existenz und die Möglichkeiten ihrer dichterischen Darstellung bemüht, jedoch mit der eigenen Existenz an ihrer Grenze stehen bleibt. Seine Gedanken dürfen darum, obwohl Kierkegaard dies Pseudonym bald danach auch in persönlichen Stellungnahmen verwendet hat, nicht als Kierkegaards eigene letzte Überzeugung genommen werden. Diese findet man vielmehr in der Beichtrede der mit den "Stadien" gleichzeitig veröffentlichten "Drei Reden bei gedachten Gelegenheiten" (14. Abteilung der "Gesammelten Werke"); deren Grabrede ist zur Interpretation des Gastmahls der Pseudonyme heranzuziehen, die Traurede zur religiösen Korrektur des "Allerleis über die Ehe" des "Gerichtsrats"
Three discourses on imagined occasions by Søren Kierkegaard( Book )

9 editions published between 1993 and 2009 in English and held by 526 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Three Discourses on Imagined Occasions was among seven signed works by Kierkegaard, each published concurrently with one of his seven pseudonymous works - in this case, with Stages on Life's Way. The two volumes not only have a chronological relation but distinctively treat some common themes. It is quite possible, the editors suggest, that Kierkegaard worked alternatively on the two manuscripts: on Stages at his ordinary desk and on Discourses on Imagined Occasions at his high desk. The first of the three discourses, "On the Occasion of a Confession," centers on stillness, wonder, and the ultimate object of a human being's seeking - in contrast to the speechmaking on erotic love in "'In Vino Veritas, '" part one of Stages. The second discourse, "On the Occasion of a Wedding," complements the second part of Stages in which Judge William delivers a panegyric on marriage. The third discourse, "At a Graveside," sharpens the ethical and religious earnestness implicit in Quidam's "A Story of Suffering," in the third part of the other work
The book on Adler by Søren Kierkegaard( Book )

10 editions published between 1998 and 2009 in English and held by 525 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The present volume is the third integral version, the closest to a copy Kierkegaard would have used if he had published. Later changes are indicated in the text and notes, and the Supplement contains sections of earlier versions omitted in the third version. A major change in the third version was the shifting of two revised sections to become addenda: "The Dialectical Relations: the Universal, the Single Individual, the Special Individual" and "The Difference between a Genius and an Apostle." In addition to discussing the central theme, the "most important ethical-religious concept," The Book on Adler provides a unique case study of Kierkegaard as a writer
