Description
The author of The Puzzle of God and Being Human, Peter Vardy here offers an accessible introduction to one of the most influential philosophers of the 19th century, in a revised and expanded edition of his original 1996 book Kierkegaard. Søren Kierkegaard (1813–55) and his writings had little influence in his lifetime or for years after his death, yet today he is accepted as one of the world's greatest thinkers and is often considered the father of existentialism. Vardy makes accessible Kierkegaard's often complex and difficult thinking about faith and Christianity, and sketches a few of the central themes of Kierkegaard's thought.

"Danish philosopher Søren Kierkegaard gets a refreshingly clear and concise introduction in this latest book from Vardy ... [who] manages not only to render the themes and intellectual characteristics of Kierkegaard's theology accessible to general readers but also to elicit sympathy for the occasionally off-putting and morose Dane.... Vardy shows how Kierkegaard's principled and uncompromising definitions of truth and sin, his understanding of the function of suffering and his view of love and the God-relationship are all crucial to understanding the Danish thinker's intellectual arguments and personal sense of purpose.... [The book] succeeds in making his key ideas come to life and gives the primary sources valuable context."—Publishers Weekly
