The ethical as such is the universal, and as the universal it applies to everyone, which can be put from another point of view by saying that it applies at every moment. It rests immanently in itself, has nothing outside itself that is its end, but is itself the purpose for everything outside, and when that is taken up into it, it has no further to go.
"A Must-Listen For Philosophy Lovers"
This first new translation of Kierkegaard's masterwork in a generation brings an essential work of modern philosophy to vivid life. While the majority of Kierkegaard's work leading up to The Concept of Anxiety dealt with the intersection of faith and knowledge, here the renowned Danish philosopher turns to the perennial question of sin and guilt. First published in 1844, this concise treatise identified - long before Freud - anxiety as a deep-seated human state, one that embodies the endless struggle with our own spiritual identities.
"A deeply positive account of anxiety"
"It is perfectly true, as philosophers say, that life must be understood backwards. But they forget the other proposition, that it must be lived forwards." (Soren Kierkegaard) This quote book is packed with the many life lessons of Soren Kierkegaard on life, religion, and redemption. Enjoy!
Søren Kierkegaard, a name meaning "church's garden", is a Christian philosopher whose work had a considerable influence on western philosophy and theology. His thoughts focused primarly on what it means to become a subject of one's existence, what feelings arise when faced with life choices, and the relation with God through faith. He is credited with numerous reflections on the three stages of life; he also questioned existential despair, absurdity and anxiety.
"repeats a lot"
Søren Kierkegaard schreibt in seinem unter einem Pseudonym veröffentlichten Erstlingswerk "Entweder - Oder" von 1843
insbesondere über die Liebe.
Philosophe danois, chrétien et séducteur, Søren Kierkegaard fut une influence majeure sur la théologie en même temps que sur la philosophie occidentale. Poète, mystique et mélancolique, Kierkegaard s'attache à penser ce que signifie être sujet de sa propre existence, les sentiments entraînés par nos choix de vie, et la relation que la foi donne avec Dieu. On lui doit une vision toute nouvelle des trois âges de la vie, et la pensée de l'absurde, de l'angoisse et du désespoir existentiel.
