This volume is a revised and improved edition of the auction catalogue of Kierkegaard’s private library. The catalogue has long served as one of the most valuable tools in Kierkegaard studies and has been actively used by commentators, translators and researchers for tracing the various sources of Kierkegaard’s thought. With the catalogue in hand, one can determine with some degree of probability what books he read and what editions he used for his information about specific authors. The present volume represents the fourth printing of the catalogue, and it differs from its predecessors in many respects. The previous editions contained incomplete, erroneous and inconsistent bibliographical information about the works in the catalogue. The primary goal of the present edition was to obtain all of the books and check their title pages for the precise bibliographical information. The result is an accurate and reliable edition of the catalogue that conforms to the needs of Kierkegaard studies in the digital age.

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.
