Starting with Kierkegaard by Patrick Sheil
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


This is a new introduction to Kierkegaard, guiding the student through the key concepts of his work by examining the overall development of his ideas. Soren Kierkegaard was one of the most important European philosophers of the nineteenth-century, the founder of existentialism whose work had a profound influence on some of the greatest minds of the last two centuries. Clearly and thematically structured, covering all Kierkegaard's key ideas and major works, "Starting with Kierkegaard" leads the reader through a thorough overview of the development of his thought, resulting in a more complete understanding of the roots of his philosophical concerns. Offering coverage of the full range of Kierkegaard's philosophy, the book examines the historical and phliosophical context of his ideas and how these shaped the key themes of his work. Crucially the book introduces the major thinkers and events that proved influential in the development of Kierkegaard's work, including Schelling, Pascal and his early education in theology. This is the ideal introduction for anyone coming to the work of this hugely important thinker for the first time. Continuum's "Starting With..." series offers clear, concise and accessible introductions to the key thinkers in philosophy. The books explore and illuminate the roots of each philosopher's work and ideas, leading readers to a thorough understanding of the key influences and philosophical foundations from which his or her thought developed. Ideal for first-year students starting out in philosophy, the series will serve as the ideal companion to study of this fascinating subject.
