Kierkegaard’s Concepts is a comprehensive, multi-volume survey of the key concepts and categories that inform Kierkegaard’s writings. Each article is a substantial, original piece of scholarship, which discusses the etymology and lexical meaning of the relevant Danish term, traces the development of the concept over the course of the authorship, and explains how it functions in the wider context of Kierkegaard’s thought. Concepts have been selected on the basis of their importance for Kierkegaard’s contributions to philosophy, theology, the social sciences, literature and aesthetics, thereby making this volume an ideal reference work for students and scholars in a wide range of disciplines.

About the Series

Kierkegaard Research: Sources, Reception and Resources

Kierkegaard Research: Sources, Reception and Resources
The Kierkegaard Research Series is a multi volume series dedicated to a systematic coverage of all aspects of Kierkegaard Studies. Interdisciplinary in nature, the series combines articles on philosophy, theology, literature, psychology and history written by the leading international Kierkegaard scholars arranged into thematically organised volumes. Each volume contains a detailed introduction, written by the editors, which traces the history of the given theme in Kierkegaard studies and an extensive index making it easy to find where the specific themes, works and persons are treated. Under the editorial supervision and organisation of the Søren Kierkegaard Research Centre at The University of Copenhagen, this series serves as both a reference work for Kierkegaard students and as a forum for new research. The series is divided into three main parts; 'Kierkegaard’s Sources' includes articles which perform source-work research in order to discover and document the numerous sources of Kierkegaard’s thought; 'Kierkegaard's Reception' includes articles treating the countless aspects of the reception of Kierkegaard’s thought and writings in the different research traditions and the third section is for reference works including an extensive bibliography of works on Kierkegaard and a volume containing a list of the books Kierkegaard owned as they appear in the auction catalogue of his library. The Kierkegaard Research series is the most important, significant and comprehensive publishing treatment in English of the work and impact of Soren Kierkegaard.
