For some reason, I just couldn’t quite get engaged. It’s beautiful writing nevertheless. Some discourses I particularly enjoyed with short comments: Two other discourses that might be of particular interest: Kierkegaard is a psychologist in discoursez highest sense of the word, it seems to me. And his strength comes out in this book in particular when he discusses phenomena of self-deception. For example someone who gives excuses, pretends to be resolute, but is in fact avoiding actually making a choice or commitment; or someone who is not patient but can nevertheless have the appearance of being so; or how “worldly wisdom” or sagacity, as it is translated in the book, becomes seductive traps on one’s way towards having faith in god Jun 03, Darrell rated it really liked it.

Kierkegaard strongly criticised both the Hegelianism of his time and what he saw as the empty formalities of the Church of Denmark.
Much of his work deals with religious themes such as faith in God, the institution of the Christian Church, Christian ethics and theology, and the emotions and feelings of individuals when faced with life choices. His early work was written under various pseudonyms who present their own distinctive viewpoints in a complex dialogue. Kierkegaard left the task of discovering the meaning of his works to the reader, because “the task must be made difficult, for only the difficult inspires the noble-hearted”.
Scholars have interpreted Kierkegaard variously as an existentialist, neo-orthodoxist, postmodernist, humanist, and individualist. Crossing the boundaries of philosophy, theology, psychology, upbuildinh literature, he is an influential figure in contemporary thought. Trivia About Eighteen Upbuildi No trivia or quizzes yet.
