Overview


The Oxford Handbook of Kierkegaard brings together some of the most distinguished contemporary contributors to Kierkegaard research together with some of the more gifted younger commentators on Kierkegaard's work. There is significant input from scholars based in Copenhagen's Soren Kierkegaard Research Centre, as well as from philosophers and theologians from Britain, Germany, and the United States. Part 1 presents some of the philological, historical and contextual work that has been produced in recent years, establishing a firm basis for the more interpretative essays found in following parts. This includes looking at the history of his published and unpublished works, his cultural and social context, and his relation to Romanticism, German Idealism, the Church, the Bible, and theological traditions. Part 2 moves from context and background to the exposition of some of the key ideas and issues in Kierkegaard's writings. Attention is paid to his style, his treatment of ethics, culture, society, the self, time, theology, love, irony, and death. Part 3 looks at the impact of Kierkegaard's thought and at how it continues to influence philosophy, theology, and literature. After an examination of issues around translating Kierkegaard, this section includes comparisons with Nietzsche, Heidegger, and Wittgenstein, as well as examining his role in modern theology, moral theology, phenomenology, postmodernism, and literature.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

"Contributors include a number of well-established Kierkegaard scholars, and all chapters conclude with references and suggested readings. Many chapters will be helpful to students and researchers engaged with the writings of Kierkegaard. Summing Up: Highly recommended." --CHOICE

"[The contributors] are all readers of Kierkegaard, passionately engaging with Kierkegaard in their own distinctive ways and with their own distinctive passions and interests. Each looks to read Kierkegaard's works in a way that not only opens the door to the meanings and lessons of these works, but, more importantly, opens the door to the world and life in powerful and enriching ways."--Thomas P. Miles, Notre Dame Philosophical Reviews
