Book Description

The connections between the emergence of modern society and the experience of melancholy are explored through a comprehensive re-examination of Soren Kierkegaard's rich and insightful writings.


`... remarkably thought-provoking study, ... But this is not your usual instroduction - this examination of both modernity ad Kirkegaard through the prism of the complex of phenomena termed `melancholy' gives both novice and veteran in Kierkegaard studies a very rich book, deserving and repaying re-readings.' - Religious Studies Vol 31
