Summary "After an initial chapter on Kierkegaard's intellectual milieu, the book expounds with reference to their philosophical and historical context seven of his major texts, ranging over theological, ethical, social and political questions. A final chapter considers Kierkegaard as a person and concludes with an evaluation of the authorship. The book does not however simply depict Kierkegaard. In the 'Critique' with which each chapter concludes Hampson carries on a lively debate with Kierkegaard. Questions range from his indifference to biblical historical criticism, to his lack of recognition of causality and the regularity of nature, and his a-political outlook. Whatever one's theological judgement, Kierkegaard has insights that are abiding; into the nature of the self, the importance of the category of the individual, and the need to accord dignity to each. Quoted extensively in this book, Kierkegaard, a writer of distinction, enthrals the reader with his flair, wit and never failing perspicacity.A provocative and original book, while accessible to those approaching these texts for the first time, it should also be of interest to the seasoned Kierkegaard scholar, illuminating as has no previous work the importance of comprehending the structure of Lutheran faith for grasping Kierkegaard's thought." -- Publisher's description.
