Gift, Creation, Love : Selections From the Upbuilding DiscoursesBook - 2010
"By far the most profound thinker of the 19th century" --Ludwig Wittgenstein "Kierkegaard's great contribution to Western philosophy was to assert, or to reassert with Romantic urgency, that, subjectively speaking, each existence is the center of the universe." --John Updike, The New Yorker Harper Perennial Modern Classics presents the rediscovered spiritual writings of S#65533;ren Kierkegaard, edited and translated by Oxford theologian George Pattison. Called "the first modernist" by The Guardian and "the father of existentialism" by the New York Times , Kierkegaard left an indelible imprint on existential writers from Sartre and Camus to Kafka and Derrida. In works like Fear and Trembling , Sickness unto Death , and Either/Or , he by famously articulated that all meaning is rooted in subjective experience--but the devotional essays that Patterson reveals in Spiritual Writings will forever change our understanding of the great philosopher, uncovering the spiritual foundations beneath his secularist philosophy.
