RT Book, Whole DB /z-wcorg/ DS http://worldcat.org ID 36284251 LA English T1 The Cambridge companion to Kierkegaard A1 Hannay, Alastair., Marino, Gordon Daniel,, PB Cambridge University Press PP Cambridge; New York YR 1998 SN 0521471516 9780521471510 0521477190 9780521477192 AB Few thinkers have been so consistently misunderstood as Soren Kierkegaard (1813-1855). Amongst the many myths that have attached themselves to his work is the belief that Kierkegaard was an irrationalist who denied the value of clear and honest thinking. The truth is that Kierkegaard did deny the power of reason to uncover universal and objective truth in matters of value, but in the current philosophical climate there is nothing irrational about that. The contributors to this companion probe the full depth of Kierkegaard's thought revealing its distinctive subtlety. The topics covered include Kierkegaard's views on art and religion, ethics and psychology, theology and politics, and knowledge and virtue. Much attention is devoted to the pervasive influence of Kierkegaard on twentieth-century philosophy and theology.
