Most widely held works by Søren Kierkegaard
Fear and trembling, and The sickness unto death by Søren Kierkegaard( Book )
129 editions published between 1900 and 2013 in 3 languages and held by 5,858 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
A Kierkegaard anthology by Søren Kierkegaard( Book )
37 editions published between 1936 and 1981 in 3 languages and held by 3,017 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

Philosophical fragments, or, A fragment of philosophy by Søren Kierkegaard( Book )
40 editions published between 1936 and 2007 in English and held by 2,041 libraries worldwide
The sickness unto death : a Christian psychological exposition for upbuilding and awakening by Søren Kierkegaard( Book )
55 editions published between 1941 and 2013 in English and Chinese and held by 2,040 libraries worldwide
The 'sickness' which Kierkegaard's book refers to as 'unto death' is resistance to this belief. It is the inclination to accept that as far as the individual is concerned, death is indeed the end. Now why should Kierkegaard want to call that a sickness? After all, even in his own time there must have been people strong both in might and body who rejected the Christian teaching of sin and salvation, and who faced what they accepted as total extinction with equanimity. And today, of course, even in societies that once proudly professed Christian principles, the rejection of Christian belief--or at least the failure unequivocally to accept it--is the rule rather than the exception. So in what sense can the denial of Christian dogma constitute an illness?
Kierkegaard's attack upon "Christendom," 1854-1855 by Søren Kierkegaard( Book )
36 editions published between 1941 and 1991 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,747 libraries worldwide
Kierkegaard's Concluding unscientific postscript by Søren Kierkegaard( Book )
31 editions published between 1941 and 1974 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,746 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."
Training in Christianity : and, the Edifying discourse which 'accompanied' it by Søren Kierkegaard( Book )
46 editions published between 1940 and 2004 in English and held by 1,690 libraries worldwide
The concept of irony, with constant reference to Socrates by Søren Kierkegaard( Book )
28 editions published between 1862 and 1983 in 3 languages and held by 1,516 libraries worldwide
Purity of heart is to will one thing : spiritual preparation for the office of confession by Søren Kierkegaard( Book )
27 editions published between 1948 and 2013 in English and held by 1,436 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

The concept of dread by Søren Kierkegaard( Book )
17 editions published between 1944 and 1973 in English and held by 1,222 libraries worldwide
Subtitled in the original Danish as "a simple psychological deliberation oriented in the direction of the dogmatic problem of original sin" this book and "The Sickness unto Death" are the only two of Kierkegaard's works which are expressly described as psychological, analysing a synthesis of body, soul and spirit
Christian discourses, and the lilies of the field and the birds of the air, and Three discourses at the communion on Fridays by Søren Kierkegaard( Book )

Parables of Kierkegaard by Søren Kierkegaard( Book )
11 editions published between 1978 and 1989 in English and held by 1,086 libraries worldwide
The mind of Kierkegaard has been kept alive in the common memory more by his parables than any other part of his authorship. Like all good parables, they have developed an oral tradition. Do not be surprised if you find here parables that you have heard imperfectly retold or partially revised. Now the reader can track down the original
The living thoughts of Kierkegaard by Søren Kierkegaard( Book )
18 editions published between 1952 and 1999 in English and held by 1,074 libraries worldwide
The Danish philosopher Kierkegaard is one of the master thinkers of the modern age, a defining influence on existentialism and on twentieth-century theology, and this brilliantly tailored selection from his vast and varied writings--made by the great English poet W.H Auden--is a perfect introduction to his work. Auden's inspired and incisive response to a thinker who had done much to shape his own beliefs is a fundamental reading of an author whose spirit remains as radical as ever more than 150 years after he wrote
