Søren Kierkegaard (1813-1855) is widely recognized as a leading figure in the Western tradition of philosophy. Especially well known are his seminal contributions to existentialism, philosophy of religion, and cultural criticism. His novel experiments with pseudonymy, irony, satire, allegory and self-erasure have influenced the development of various strands of 'post-structuralist' and 'post-modern' thought in the twentieth century. The secondary literature devoted to his thought is consequently distributed across a number of academic disciplines, including philosophy, literature, religion, political theory and history.
These volumes are designed to allow current debates on key themes to be followed through in depth without having to seek additional sources, while giving readers an appreciation of the diversity of philosophical approaches and interpretive strategies which characterize recent Kierkegaard scholarship.
