Most widely held works by Søren Kierkegaard
Fear and trembling ; and, The sickness unto death by Søren Kierkegaard( Book )
598 editions published between 1843 and 2017 in 23 languages and held by 6,519 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
Either/or by Søren Kierkegaard( Book )
569 editions published between 1842 and 2016 in 20 languages and held by 5,480 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]
The concept of anxiety : a simple psychologically orienting deliberation on the dogmatic issue of hereditary sin by Søren Kierkegaard( Book )
510 editions published between 1844 and 2016 in 15 languages and held by 4,460 libraries worldwide
"This edition replaces the earlier translation by Walter Lowrie that appeared under the title The Concept of Dread. Along with The Sickness unto Death, the work reflects from a psychological point of view Søren Kierkegaard's longstanding concern with the Socratic maxim, "Know yourself." His ontological view of the self as a synthesis of body, soul, and spirit has influenced philosophers such as Heidegger and Sartre, theologians such as Jaspers and Tillich, and psychologists such as Rollo May. In The Concept of Anxiety, Kierkegaard describes the nature and forms of anxiety, placing the domain of anxiety within the mental-emotional states of human existence that precede the qualitative leap of faith to the spiritual state of Christianity. It is through anxiety that the self becomes aware of its dialectical relation between the finite and the infinite, the temporal and the eternal."--Publisher description
Kierkegaard's Concluding unscientific postscript by Søren Kierkegaard( Book )
204 editions published between 1846 and 2015 in 7 languages and held by 3,154 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."
Works of love : some Christian reflections in the form of discourses by Søren Kierkegaard( Book )
195 editions published between 1847 and 2013 in 6 languages and held by 3,127 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
A Kierkegaard anthology by Søren Kierkegaard( Book )
58 editions published between 1936 and 1981 in 3 languages and held by 2,965 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
The sickness unto death : a Christian psychological exposition for upbuilding and awakening by Søren Kierkegaard( Book )
325 editions published between 1838 and 2017 in 11 languages and held by 2,849 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?
Training in Christianity : and, the Edifying discourse which 'accompanied' it by Søren Kierkegaard( Book )
190 editions published between 1850 and 2016 in 9 languages and held by 2,676 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 concept of irony : with constant reference to Socrates by Søren Kierkegaard( Book )
55 editions published between 1862 and 1992 in English and Danish and held by 2,225 libraries worldwide
Philosophical fragments, or, A fragment of philosophy by Søren Kierkegaard( Book )
105 editions published between 1865 and 2013 in 4 languages and held by 2,106 libraries worldwide
Kierkegaard's attack upon "Christendom," 1854-1855 by Søren Kierkegaard( Book )
59 editions published between 1941 and 1991 in English and held by 1,749 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 2010 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,644 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
For self-examination ; Judge for yourself! by Søren Kierkegaard( Book )
54 editions published between 1940 and 1991 in English and held by 1,642 libraries worldwide
For Self-Examination and its companion piece Judge for Yourself! are the culmination of Søren Kierkegaard's ""second authorship, "" which followed his Concluding Unscientific Postscript. Among the simplest and most readily comprehended of Kierkegaard's books, the two works are part of the signed direct communications, as distinguished from his earlier pseudonymous writings. The lucidity and pithiness, and the earnestness and power, of For Self-Examination and Judge for Yourself! are enhanced when, as Kierkegaard requested, they are read aloud. They contain the well-known passages o
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 )
55 editions published between 1939 and 2016 in English and held by 1,257 libraries worldwide
The edition includes "Christian Discourses," "The Lilies of the Field and the Birds of the Air" and "Three Discourses at the Communion on Fridays."
Stages on life's way by Søren Kierkegaard( Book )
46 editions published between 1940 and 1991 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,246 libraries worldwide
Stages on Life's Way, the sequel to Either/Or, is an intensely poetic example of Kierkegaard's vision of the three stages, or spheres, of existence: the esthetic, the ethical, and the religious. With characteristic love for mystification, he presents the work as a bundle of documents fallen by chance into the hands of "Hilarius Bookbinder," who prepared them for printing. The book begins with a banquet scene patterned on Plato's Symposium. (George Brandes maintained that "one must recognize with amazement that it holds its own in this comparison.") Next is a discourse by "Judge William" in praise of marriage "in answer to objections." The remainder of the volume, almost two-thirds of the whole, is the diary of a young man, discovered by "Frater Taciturnus," who was deeply in love but felt compelled to break his engagement. The work closes with a letter to the reader from Taciturnus on the three "existence-spheres" represented by the three parts of the book
Søren Kierkegaard's journals and papers by Søren Kierkegaard( Book )
13 editions published in 1967 in English and held by 1,240 libraries worldwide
The seducer's diary by Søren Kierkegaard( Book )
323 editions published between 1902 and 2017 in 19 languages and held by 1,117 libraries worldwide
"In the vast literature of love, The Seducer's Diary is an intricate curiosity--a feverishly intellectual attempt to reconstruct an erotic failure as a pedagogic success, a wound masked as a boast," observes John Updike in his foreword to Søren Kierkegaard's narrative. This work, a chapter from Kierkegaard's first major volume, Either/Or, springs from his relationship with his fiancée, Regine Olsen. Kierkegaard fell in love with the young woman, ten years his junior, proposed to her, but then broke off their engagement a year later. This event affected Kierkegaard profoundly. Olsen became a muse for him, and a flood of volumes resulted. His attempt to set right, in writing, what he feels was a mistake in his relationship with Olsen taught him the secret of "indirect communication." The Seducer's Diary, then, becomes Kierkegaard's attempt to portray himself as a scoundrel and thus make their break easier for her.--from publisher's description

Discourses at the Communion on Fridays by Søren Kierkegaard( Book )
9 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 186 libraries worldwide
"Søren Kierkegaard's 13 communion discourses constitute a distinct genre among the various forms of religious writing composed by Kierkegaard. Originally published at different times and places, Kierkegaard himself believed that these discourses served as a unifying element in his work and were crucial for understanding his religious thought and philosophy as a whole. Written in an intensely personal liturgical context, the communion discourses prepare the reader for participation in this rite by emphasizing the appropriate posture for forgiveness of sins and confession."--Publisher's description
Repetition ; and, Philosophical crumbs by Søren Kierkegaard( Book )
10 editions published in 2009 in English and Danish and held by 163 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"--Back cover
