Most widely held works by Søren Kierkegaard
Fear and trembling ; Repetition by Søren Kierkegaard( Book )

490 editions published between 1843 and 2014 in 22 languages and held by 4,720 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
The concept of anxiety : a simple psychologically orienting deliberation on the dogmatic issue of hereditary sin by Søren Kierkegaard( Book )

462 editions published between 1844 and 2015 in 17 languages and held by 4,345 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Presents a translation of the Danish philosopher's 1844 treatise on anxiety, which he claimed could only be overcome through embracing it
Philosophical fragments, or, A fragment of philosophy by Søren Kierkegaard( Book )

325 editions published between 1844 and 2013 in 15 languages and held by 3,993 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 )

265 editions published between 1846 and 2010 in 10 languages and held by 3,389 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Besides a sense of personal loss at the death of David F. Swenson on February 11, 1940, I felt dismay that he had left unfinished his translation of the Unscientific Postscript. I had longed to see it published among the first of Kierkegaard's works in English. In the spring of 1935 it did not seem exorbitant to hope that it might be ready for the printer by the end of that year. For in March I learned from Professor Swenson that he had years before "done about two thirds of a rough translation." In 1937/38 he took a sabbatical leave from his university for the sake of finishing this work. Yet after all it was not finished- partly because Professor Swenson was already incapacitated by the illness which eventually resulted in his death; but also because he aimed at a degree of perfection which hardly can be reached by a translator. At one time he expressed to me his suspicion that perhaps, as in the translation of Kant's philosophy, it might require the cooperation of many scholars during several generations before the translation of Kierkegaard's terminology could be definitely settled. I hailed with joy this new apprehension, which promised a speedy conclusion of the work, and in the words of Luther I urged him to "sin boldly."--Editor's pref., p. [ix]
Works of love : some Christian reflections in the form of discourses by Søren Kierkegaard( Book )

209 editions published between 1847 and 2013 in 6 languages and held by 3,194 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

Either/or by Søren Kierkegaard( Book )

75 editions published between 1944 and 1999 in 4 languages and held by 3,150 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Søren Kierkegaard, the Danish philosopher, is a major influence in contemporary existentialist philosophy. In his work he dealt with three levels of existence -- the aesthetic, ethical and religious -- and the first two of these were his primary concern in this first great work. It appears pseudonymously, purporting to contain the papers of two men. One is a young man who, in his aphorisms, essays, lyrical outbursts and the famous "Diary of a seducer", brilliantly presents the pleasures of aesthetic life. The other is an older man, who writes letters discussing marriage and selfhood in which he tries to convince his young friend of the superiority of the ethical life. Kierkegaard indicates no choice between the two views; the reader is left to make his own decision." [Back cover]
A Kierkegaard anthology by Søren Kierkegaard( Book )

44 editions published between 1936 and 1981 in 3 languages and held by 2,979 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The selections in this book have been chosen, first, with a view to the only kind of reading which the editor of an anthology has any right to expect; but secondly, in the hope that possibly a few persons may read it through from beginning to end. So read, it gives a picture of Kierkegaard's intellectual and spiritual development from the age of twenty-one (the date of the first passage from the Journals) until his death a little over twenty years later. This picture is traced by the hand of S.K. himself in the excerpts taken from his various works and arranged (with one or two exceptions) in chronological order
Practice in Christianity by Søren Kierkegaard( Book )

248 editions published between 1850 and 2015 in 9 languages and held by 2,971 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 sickness unto death : a Christian psychological exposition for upbuilding and awakening by Søren Kierkegaard( Book )

446 editions published between 1838 and 2016 in 17 languages and held by 2,944 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Best known as a philosopher, one of the founders of existentialism, Kierkegaard also wrote books whose themes were primarily religious, psychological or literary. He was opposed to much in organised Christianity, stressing the necessity for individual choice against prescribed dogma and ritual. In this book, he concentrates his penetrating psychological observations on the theme of despair

Eighteen upbuilding discourses by Søren Kierkegaard( Book )

121 editions published between 1843 and 2014 in 7 languages and held by 2,208 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Fear and trembling, and the sickness unto death by Søren Kierkegaard( Book )

47 editions published between 1900 and 2013 in English and held by 2,177 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The two books comprised in this volume are in greater demand than any other works of Kierkegaard. This preference is a credit to the public taste, for Kierkegaard himself called them "the most perfect books I have written," though in this commendation he included The Concept of Dread, and later stretched it to include Training in Christianity
Christian discourses ; The crisis and a crisis in the life of an actress by Søren Kierkegaard( Book )

191 editions published between 1848 and 2015 in 9 languages and held by 2,172 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Written in ordinary language, the work combines simplicity and inwardness with reflection and presents crucial Christian concepts and presuppositions with unusual clarity. Among the discourses are some of Kierkegaard's masterpieces
For self-examination ; Judge for yourself! by Søren Kierkegaard( Book )

145 editions published between 1851 and 2014 in 8 languages and held by 1,751 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Kierkegaard's attack upon "Christendom," 1854-1855 by Søren Kierkegaard( Book )

43 editions published between 1941 and 1991 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,731 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Purity of heart is to will one thing : spiritual preparation for the office of confession by Søren Kierkegaard( Book )

60 editions published between 1938 and 2014 in 3 languages and held by 1,682 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Although this little book (it can be called an occasional address, yet without having the occasion which produces the speaker and gives him authority, or the occasion which produces the reader and makes him eager to learn) is like a fantasy, like a dream by day as it confronts the relationships of actuality: yet it is not without assurance and not without hope of accomplishing its object. It is in search of that solitary "individual," to whom it wholly abandons itself, by whom it wishes to be received as if it had arisen within his own heart; that solitary "individual" whom with joy and gratitude I call my reader; that solitary "individual" who reads willingly and slowly, who reads over and over again, and who reads aloud- for his own sake. If it finds him, then in the distance of the separation the understanding is perfect, if he retains for himself both the distance and the understanding in the inwardness of appropriation
Stages on life's way by Søren Kierkegaard( Book )

117 editions published between 1858 and 2009 in 5 languages and held by 1,560 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The concept of irony : with constant reference to Socrates by Søren Kierkegaard( Book )

28 editions published between 1862 and 1983 in English and Danish and held by 1,515 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Repetition; an essay in experimental psychology by Søren Kierkegaard( Book )

209 editions published between 1843 and 2015 in 15 languages and held by 1,431 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

'The love of repetition is in truth the only happy love' So says Constantine Constantius on the first page of Kierkegaard's Repetition. Life itself, according to Kierkegaard's pseudonymous narrator, is a repetition, and in the course of this witty, playful work Constantius explores the nature of love and happiness, the passing of time and the importance of moving forward (and backward). The ironically entitled Philosophical Crumbs pursues the investigation of faith and love and their tense relationship with reason. Written only a year apart, these two works complement each other and give the reader a unique insight into the breadth and substance of Kierkegaard's thought. The first reads like a novel and the second like a Platonic dialogue, but both engage, in different ways, the same challenging issues. These are the first translations to convey the literary quality and philosophical precision of the originals. They were not intended, however, for philosophers, but for anyone who feels drawn to the question of the ultimate truth of human existence and the source of human happiness
