The Essential Kierkegaard 4.4 out of 5 based on 0 ratings. 5 reviews.

There's no quarrel with the material presented but Kierkegaard was a well-educated writer who didn't spare himself, much less his readers. Readers who have read something about existentialism and want to delve in a little deeper might find themselves quickly over their head. It's quite a jump from Wikipedia to the real thing.

For the Kierkergaardian this is a must have. Thorough and to the point a wonderful collection of the master theologian, philosopher, and psychologist.

A superb collection of a great thinker and feeler, a man of flesh and bone as Unamuno said
