This reading of Kierkegaard's Christian love ethic — an ethic of agape — relates to contemporary discussions of love as infinite debt and radical gift; it presents the ethical relation as one of moral vision and moral blindness, in order to respect alterity and kinship; it also clarifies Kierkegaard's relation to his Lutheran heritage, highlighting both love's hiddenness and its works fruits. Moreover, the deliberations on building up others, on forgiveness, and on reconciliation, address dimensions of our responsibility for community.

Reviews "I believe A Companion to Kierkegaard is successful in meeting its aims. Stewart has once again edited an important book. It provides a good overview of many important topics in the field of Kierkegaard studies. The book does so by providing the reader with relatively short but sophisticated papers. It is, naturally, impossible to do complete justice to all sides of a thinker as versatile as Kierkegaard in one book, but A Companion to Kierkegaard does a good job.
Moreover, its organized structure makes it easy for readers to orient themselves and helps them to select the articles that discuss the topics they are interested in.
The mostly quite extensive bibliographies at the end of each of the papers will definitely help them further to explore these issues. In recent years interest in the thought of Kierkegaard has grown dramatically, and with it the body of secondary literature has expanded so quickly that it has become impossible for even the most conscientious scholar to keep pace. The problem of the explosion of secondary literature is made more acute by the fact that much of what is written about Kierkegaard appears in languages that most Kierkegaard scholars do not know. Kierkegaard has become a global phenomenon, and new research traditions have emerged in different languages, countries and regions.
The present volume is dedicated to trying to help, in some small part, to resolve these two problems in Kierkegaard studies. Its purpose is, first, to provide book reviews of some of the leading monographic studies in the Kierkegaard secondary literature so as to assist the community of scholars to become familiar with the works that they have not read for themselves. The aim is thus to offer students and scholars of Kierkegaard a comprehensive survey of works that have played a more or less significant role in the research. Second, the present volume also tries to make accessible many works in the Kierkegaard secondary literature that are written in the different languages and thus to give a glimpse into different and lesser-known research traditions.
Tome III of the present volume presents the second half of the reviews of works written in English. Tome II of the present volume presents the first half of the reviews of works written in English. Kierkegaard Research: Sources, Reception and Resources , vol. While Kierkegaard is primarily known as a philosopher or religious thinker, his writings have also been used extensively by literary writers, critics and artists.
This use can be traced in the work of major cultural figures not just in Denmark and Scandinavia but also in the wider world. These later figures have been attracted to Kierkegaard due to a number of reasons, for example, his creative mixing of genres, his complex use of pseudonyms, his rhetoric and literary style, and his rich images, parables, and allegories. The goal of the present volume is to document this influence in the different language groups and traditions.
Tome V treats the work of a heterogeneous group of writers from the Romance languages and from Central and Eastern Europe who have made use of Kierkegaard in their writings. The Dane also appears in the works of authors writing in other Romance languages, such as the Romanian writer Max Blecher. Kierkegaard has also been read by very diverse literary figures from Central and Eastern Europe. The American composer Samuel Barber made use of Kierkegaard in his musical works.
Kierkegaard has also exercised an influence on British and Irish letters. The English-born poet W. Auden sought in Kierkegaard ideas for his poetic works, and the contemporary English novelist David Lodge has written a novel Therapy , in which Kierkegaard plays an important role.
Cryptic traces of Kierkegaard can also be found. In Sweden the novelist Victoria Benedictsson made use of Kierkegaard during the period of the so-called Modern Breakthrough. Similarly, the celebrated playwright August Strindberg found inspiration in Kierkegaard. Later Swedish writers right up to our own day have continued to draw on his thought. The Norwegian reception of Kierkegaard also began remarkably early and was shaped by the leading names in Norwegian cultural life. The famous dramatist and poet Henrik Ibsen, despite his coy responses to questions about his relation to Kierkegaard, clearly seems to have been inspired by the Dane in famous works such as Brand.
Finally, the celebrated Norwegian artist Edvard Munch closely studied key Kierkegaardian concepts such as anxiety, and this influence is notable in his iconic paintings such as The Scream. Tome II is dedicated to the use of Kierkegaard by later Danish writers. Danish novelists and critics from the Modern Breakthrough movement in the s were among the first to make extensive use of his writings.
These included the theoretical leader of the movement, the critic Georg Brandes, who wrote an entire book on Kierkegaard, and the novelists Jens Peter Jacobsen and Henrik Pontoppidan. The next generation of writers from the turn of the century and through the First World War also saw in Kierkegaard important points of inspiration. There can be no doubt that Kierkegaard has indelibly stamped his name on Danish literature.
Due presumably in part to the German translations of Kierkegaard in the Austrian cultural journal Der Brenner, Kierkegaard continued to be used by later figures such as the novelist and playwright, Thomas Bernhard. Kierkegaard has always enjoyed a rich reception in the fields of theology and religious studies. This reception might seem to be obvious given the fact that he is one of the most important Christian writers of the nineteenth century. However, upon closer examination, the matter is not so obvious as it may seem since Kierkegaard was by no means a straightforward theologian in any traditional sense.
He had no enduring interest in some of the main fields of theology such as church history or biblical studies, and he is strikingly silent on many key Christian dogmas. Moreover, he harbored a degree of animosity towards the university theologians and churchmen of his own day. Despite this, he has been a source of inspiration for numerous religious writers from different denominations and traditions. Another key figure of the mid-war years was the prolific Jesuit author Erich Przywara. These theologians come from and represent a variety of religious and political backgrounds: the spiritual world of Hasidism, Modern Orthodox Judaism of Mithnaggedic origin, and Modern Religious Zionism.
It is also developing — as was envisaged from the start — into an extremely large project of almost encyclopaedic proportions although the articles are for the most part full-length scholarly essays rather than brief encyclopaedia notices. The systematic organization of the work means that topics that have often been neglected in writing about Kierkegaard get their due Like other volumes in the series, this contains work of very high quality, thoroughly researched and clearly presented. Kierkegaard has been a provocative force in the English-speaking world since the early twentieth century, inspiring almost contradictory receptions.
In Britain, before World War I the few literati who were familiar with his work tended to assimilate Kierkegaard to the heroic individualism of Ibsen and Nietzsche.

In the United States knowledge of Kierkegaard was introduced by Scandinavian immigrants who brought with them a picture of the Dane as being much more sympathetic to traditional Christianity. The interpretation of Kierkegaard in Britain and America during the early and mid-twentieth century generally reflected the sensibilities of the particular theological interpreter. The Anglican theologians generally found Kierkegaard to be too one-sided in his critique of reason and culture, while theologians hailing from the Reformed tradition often saw him as an insightful harbinger of neo-orthodoxy.
The second part of Tome II is dedicated to the Kierkegaard reception in Scandinavian theology, featuring articles on Norwegian and Swedish theologians influenced by Kierkegaard. As with its sister-tome, this book charts the impact of Kierkegaard on many diverse theological figures who — in one way or another — have made use of his writings Overall, this is a vigorously-researched and stimulating collection that further breeds discussion over Kierkegaard's relationship to theology. Tome I is dedicated to the reception of Kierkegaard among German Protestant theologians and religious thinkers.
Both Barth and Hirsch established unique ways of reading and appropriating Kierkegaard, which to a certain degree determined the direction and course of Kierkegaard studies right up to our own times. Kierkegaard is perhaps the most misunderstood and easily-caricatured thinker of the modern era. His reception and translation in certain German theological schools has often been crucial to such misunderstandings This volume contains fascinating articles on each of these key thinkers and others , with in-depth analysis on the Kierkegaard texts they read, how they used them, and what impact he made on their overall thought.
These studies highlight insightful details and patterns that will be of enormous use to those wishing to navigate the thought-trends of these theologians. As well as those more notable Kierkegaard interpreters of the early twentieth century, there are interesting articles on those less well-known as readers of Kierkegaard, such as Moltmann and Pannenberg As expected of this impressive series, these essays are impeccably researched, proving extremely valuable both for Kierkegaard scholarship and those wishing to map theological trajectories more generally.
He rejected the model of philosophical inquiry that was mainstream in his day and was careful to have his pseudonymous authors repeatedly disassociate themselves from philosophy.
