Philosophical fragments, or, A fragment of philosophy by Søren Kierkegaard( Book )

41 editions published between 1936 and 2007 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,854 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In dieser theologischen Arbeit entwickelt Kierkegaard seine Philosophie vom menschgewordenen Gott und vom Menschen, der sich durch ihn zu einer neuen, besseren Selbstsetzung motivieren läßt. Die Bissen werden damit zu einem Dokument faustischer Religiösität, des Urbilds dynamischen, spontanen Werdens und Schöpfertums und bilden einen ersten Kulminationspunkt im Denken des dänischen Philosophen
Kierkegaard's Concluding unscientific postscript by Søren Kierkegaard( Book )

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."

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

13 editions published between 1946 and 1972 in English and held by 425 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
