Product Description

Why I so much prefer autumn to spring is that in the autumn one looks at heaven--in the spring at the earth.
-Soren Kierkegaard

The father of existentialism, Soren Kierkegaard (1813-1855) was a philosopher who could write like an angel. With only a sentence or two, he could plumb the depths of the human spirit. In this collection of some 800 quotations, the reader will find words of life-changing power. Drawing from the authoritative Princeton editions of Kierkegaard's writings, this book presents a broad selection of his wit and wisdom, as well as a stimulating introduction to his life and work.

Organized by topic, this volume covers notable Kierkegaardian concerns such as anxiety, despair, existence, irony, and the absurd, but also erotic love, the press, busyness, and the comic. Here readers will encounter both well-known quotations and obscure ones. Those who spend time in these pages will discover the writer who said, "my grief is my castle," but who also taught that "the best defense against hypocrisy is love."

Illuminating and delightful, this engaging book also provides a substantial portrait of one of the most influential of modern thinkers.

Endorsements

The Quotable Kierkegaard serves equally well as an introduction or a reference book. There is no better way to sample the unique flavor of Kierkegaard's thought. And if you ever need a quotation for a speech or a sermon, for an epigraph or an epitaph, for a dedication or a denunciation, you're sure to find a striking one here.
-David Lodge

This book is the best of two worlds: a rich collection of quotations from Kierkegaard that also provides a quick introduction to the central core of his thinking.
-Alastair Hannay

This admirable selection of quotations from the eminently quotable Kierkegaard is a fine introduction to the breadth and variety of his thought.
-Bruce H. Kirmmse
