    About “Søren Kierkegaard”

    1. Søren Kierkegaard

      S ren Aabye Kierkegaard was a prolific 19th century Danish philosopher and theologian Kierkegaard strongly criticised both the Hegelianism of his time and what he saw as the empty formalities of the Church of Denmark Much of his work deals with religious themes such as faith in God, the institution of the Christian Church, Christian ethics and theology, and the emotions and feelings of individuals when faced with life choices His early work was written under various pseudonyms who present their own distinctive viewpoints in a complex dialogue.Kierkegaard left the task of discovering the meaning of his works to the reader, because the task must be made difficult, for only the difficult inspires the noble hearted.Scholars have interpreted Kierkegaard variously as an existentialist, neo orthodoxist, postmodernist, humanist, and individualist.Crossing the boundaries of philosophy, theology, psychology, and literature, he is an influential figure in contemporary thought.

    2. Søren Kierkegaard was clever, arrogant, verbose, observant, cynical, ironic, prolific, religious, gifted. His writing is dense, polemical, lyrical, remarkable. His magnum opus, Either-Or, is an exceptional work. I struggled my way through it, much as I imagine I would struggle to climb Mount Everest – through nebulous passages, up windy roads that sometimes narrowed, sometimes digressed into unexpected territory, always challenged my footing and my stamina. But on nearly every page there was [...]


    3. A book full of musings on many different elements of life and issues which are still very much relevant today, Either/Or is a wonderful book, not just as a piece of philosophy, but as pure literature. Soren Kierkegaard writes like a poet, which makes his philosophical writings so entertaining and enlightening to read.A guide to a meaningful existence, Kierkegaard explores the aesthetic and ethical ideologies of life through two characters: A, the aesthetician and Judge Wilhelm, the ethicist. Par [...]


    4. Easily one of the best books I have read this year, as this year nears the end, I can say without a doubt that Kierkegaard was truly a genius. It is not without purpose that my mind immediately rushes to Nietzsche pithy aphorism on genius wherein he writes, "Every deep thinker is more afraid of being understood than being misunderstood. In the latter case, perhaps his vanity suffers, but the former hurts his heart, his sympathy, which always says, "Alas, why do you want to have it as hard as I d [...]


    5. I've been on a Kierkegaard Binge, and after re-reading all his shorter works, I started "Either/Or" with enthusiasm; but it really is a hard book to review as a whole.Its definitely one of my all time favorites, not just philosophically, but over-all. But it just didn't feel right to give it the full 5/5. Kierkegaard is more a writer than a philosopher, such that in poetic congruence with the themes of this book, his writing never ceases to be Aesthetic, but it does cease to be philosophical (?) [...]


    6. This is one of those books that you read that covers a bunch of things you had been thinking about on your own, at which point you realize "oh: i'm not really that smart, am I?"But as a general rule, I like anyone who agrees with me, and I like the way Kerigaodigjadkfaodfkadsdfnsldfkasdfnlaskdn (sp?) writes. 4 stars from meso a very very good album, but that's a different deal.


    7. "Should I get married, should I be good? Astound the girl next door with my velvet suit and Faustus hood? Not take her to movies, but to cemetaries"- Gregory CorsoThis is heartfelt, probing thinking which everyone goes through at one time or another. Whether its better to settle down and get married or to try and live zestfully as a single person. Not to mention all the attendant indentity, Being, subjective/objective issues that accrue when you sit down and think about it.There are- fictionally [...]


    8. From Part Two: (1) The Aesthetic validity of marriageMarriage was constructed with highest in mind: lasting possession. To conquer, one needs pride; to possess, humility. To conquer one needs to be violent; to possess, to have patience. To conquer, greed; to possess, contentment Pride lends itself superbly to representation, for what is essential in pride is not succession in time but intensity in the moment. Humility is hard to represent just because it is indeed successive. In the case of humi [...]


    9. kierkegaard's either/or which i first read in the german translation (possibly a little closer to the danish original) is a first rate philosophical excursion that, much like many of the works of nietzsche, is also a first rate literary pleasure. it is only reluctantly that i call this book "non-fiction". if published today, e.g. in mcsweeney's, either/or, k.s first published book, would blow people away just the same and lead to a global existential outcry of youths. k. has always informed my w [...]


    10. Three stars means I liked it - but given a directive HE could have made this dyad FAR less convoluted and still entertained a/us readers (even though it most certainly deserves 4or5). I don't have to understand it all to do so, right? There were lucid passages and then there were obscure lengthy digressions that took your head for a ride. There was of course the gap of time and context to hinder meaning as well. Anyone who can get so far down the rabbit hole of parsing the seduction of a young m [...]


    11. I found the 'Either' part of the book somewhat tedious in itself. Music, art, seduction, Mozart and Don Giovanni is the greatest opera ever and so on. It took the 'Or' part of the book for me to really appreciate what was going on with the book as a whole. The universal can never be understood except through the particular (big theme with Kierkegaard and also Hegel but Hegel develops a coherent philosophy to deal with it). Kierkegaard really once again gets to the heart of the issue of being hum [...]


    12. Are passions, then, the Pagans of the soul? Reason alone baptized?I guess the choice of this quote in the beginning of the book tells us a lot about the common thread in this book and the rest of his work.So the book is divided into two parts and Victor Eremita is the editor who published the work.The part I written by the young ironic aesthete “A” contains a lot of witty aphorisms, an essay on Mozart’s Don Giovanni, a very interesting essay on tragedy in ancient and modern drama and an in [...]


    13. Even if you are not interested in philosophy, this book is great to read just for its literary style. Kierkegaard speaks through a pseudonymous editor, who has compiled the diary of an aesthete who is also a seducer of young girls. Warning the aesthete is a judge who pleads with him to choose an ethical life over his aesthetic gallavanting lifestyle.Kierkegaard is not only a great philosopher, but also a great writer. This is his first work and also the best introduction to his later philosophy. [...]


    14. Either you have read this book, or you have not. If you have read it, you will not require a review, if you have not, non will suffice to describe its content.A friend took me to visit Kierkegaard's grave at assistens kirkrgården in Copenhagen during a difficult time in my life. Ben Webster is also buried there.


    15. "Yes, I assure you that if my own life, through no fault of my own, were so fraught with sorrows and sufferings that I could call myself the greatest tragic hero, revel in my pain, and appal the world by calling attention to it, my choice is made; I divest myself of the hero's apparel and of tragedy's pathos, I am not the afflicted one who can be proud of his suffering, I am the humble one who is aware of his sin. I have only one expression for what I suffer-guilt; one expression for my pain-rep [...]


    16. This was a slow read. Not because it isn't interesting but because it demands every available brain cell be focused. His discussions of the aesthetic and then the ethical life are presented by means of letters, and a diary, written by different characters created by Kierkegaard. This is a devise to show the various views from the inside. Having read Fear and Trembling before this definitely helped me sort out some of what he was saying. An understanding his views regarding despair, resignation, [...]


    17. Either/or is discredited by its principle reliance on the necessity to choose between an aesthetic or ethical life. Kierkegaard makes the point that we have to choose between these if we want to have purpose to life because of the inherent contradiction between the two. However this choice seems arbitrary and unnatural. Even if necessary (which I doubt it is), why propose a philosophy that's impossible for a vast majority of people to apply?While the logic is pretty shady for a work considered t [...]



    18. Alastair Hannay writes that the "motivation" for Either/Or was "probably a combination of two things:" 1. breaking off with Regine Olsen and 2. his confrontation with Schelling's philosophy. I'm fascinated by the whole breakup story. I've long tried to figure out why he did it. I think it was Francis Bacon who said something like "He who has a wife and children has given hostages to fortune." Or maybe it was Kevin Bacon. In any case, I think Soren made the choice to write and he did not want any [...]



    19. This book is one of those rare things, a philosophical work that might actually change you. Works of philosophy should either make you look at the world differently, or yourself differently. Either/Or is in the latter class.This is the first book by the first existentialist philospher, the Dane Soren Kierkegaard. In many ways it is unusual, such as I have described above, and also in terms of its structure. It is written under a pseudonym (Victor Eremita) who himself has not actually "written" t [...]


    20. I very much learned thinking and observing from Kierkegaard. Kierkegaard is at the same time a philosopher, a psychologist and a writer. In Either-Or you find all these aspects of Kierkegaard. The aesthetic observer in part one and the ethic and religious philosophy in part two of the book. A good place to start getting acquainted with Kierkegaard's style and intellectual universe.


    21. A: take many lovers! maximise enjoyment!B: marry! love your wife with all your soule!C: Most famous cat on the Internet: Maru - compilation (329.9 Mb)


    22. In Either/Or, Kierkergaard dealt with two views of life, the aesthetic and the ethical, as to which one of them he belonged is not clear. However, that should not be what matters; because the anonymous style in which he wrote point exactly at that: "Don't give a +$%# about who am I? or what I believe in! Just think of what I'm writing here and do yourself the favour of thinking about it!".In general, the first life-view is the aesthetic, which throws light on the abstract and immediate. The ethi [...]


    23. Favorite quote: “Marry, and you will regret it; don’t marry, you will also regret it; marry or don’t marry, you will regret it either way. Laugh at the world’s foolishness, you will regret it; weep over it, you will regret that too; laugh at the world’s foolishness or weep over it, you will regret both. Believe a woman, you will regret it; believe her not, you will also regret it… Hang yourself, you will regret it; do not hang yourself, and you will regret that too; hang yourself or [...]


    24. Dear Mr. E,I leave this review here in case you ever find yourself perusing this section of my reading list. It's also a place I will refer to in our discussions when I did not expand adequately on my thoughts on Kierkegaard."Either/Or: A Fragment of Life" is a beautifully written book. It is not a book one loves but one lusts. In the words of the author "for what distinguishes love from lust is its having the stamp of the eternal. For the sensual is the instantaneous. It seeks instant satisfact [...]


    25. This is a strange, interesting read. Kierkegaard has a thoughtful, and complex philosophy and it is hard to know what the man believes since he couches it in characters like the Aesthete and Judge Wilhelm.If the book were written in the 20th century it would probably be considered post-modern because while I think it is often classified as a novel, it has a unique structure. The first part of the book is by the Aesthete character. He expounds upon Mozart's "Don Giovani" and is praising the epony [...]


    26. This is a fantastic demonstration of Kierkegaard's conception of the aesthetic and the ethic stages. Each has a corresponding avatar, both of which are interesting in unique ways.The aesthetic man exhibits an obsession with immediacy. Worldly concerns are suspended in order to enable a pure experience of enjoyment. The seducer, i.e. the "author" of the Diary, is keen on the experience of love, which, unstable as it were, can only be found in the process of seduction. When the seduction reaches i [...]


    27. Having now read “Either/Or: A Fragment of Life” the world is not the same. I think it fair to say at least for myself that this book brought me both better clarity and greater confusion on the living of one’s life. I’d like to say I understood everything expertly after the first read, but it would be disingenuous to make such a claim. “Either/Or” is one of the most thought provoking books I have ever consumed as a reader. The language is amazing. I learned new words. I also learned h [...]


    28. This book is frustrating. On the one hand it is entertainingly clever, frames many important questions in interesting ways, and is a fascinating kind of literary composition, set up as a "conversation" between pseudonymous characters representing particular viewpoints. I'm a sucker for that sort of thing. But when I get down into the particulars, can't help but note that the two principal voices in the book are a creep and a bore, and it's not always obvious which is which.All of it takes for gr [...]
