Philosophical fragments, or, A fragment of philosophy by Søren Kierkegaard ( Book )
27 editions published between 1936 and 2007 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,881 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 )
31 editions published between 1941 and 1974 in English and held by 1,753 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."

Concluding unscientific postscript to the Philosophical crumbs by Søren Kierkegaard ( Book )
1 edition published in 1945 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Kierkegaard's Concluding Unscientific Postscript is a classic of existential literature. It concludes the first and richest phase of Kierkegaard's pseudonymous authorship and is the text that philosophers look to first when attempting to define Kierkegaard's own philosophy. Familiar Kierkegaardian themes are introduced in the work, including truth as subjectivity, indirect communication, the leap, and the impossibility of forming a philosophical system for human existence. The Postscript sums up the aims of the preceding pseudonymous works and opens the way to the next part of Kierkegaard's increasingly tempestuous life: it can thus be seen as a cornerstone of his philosophical thought. This volume offers the work in a new and accessible translation by Alastair Hannay, together with an introduction that sets the work in its philosophical and historical contexts
