Kierkegaard and Eastern Orthodox Thought


A Comparative Philosophical Analysis


The continuing popularity and influence of Søren Aabye Kierkegaard remains something of a minor miracle.Kierkegaard himself would undoubtedly find some humor in this development as a part of his overall philosophical project was to provide a full-frontal assault on the growing dominance of ‘objective’ thinking and the hyper-professionalization of all areas of human thought and life. This book provides yet another attempt to engage with the biting wit and philosophical insights of Kierkegaard’s philosophy.

The continuing popularity and influence of Søren Aabye Kierkegaard remains something of a minor miracle. In an age that is increasingly dominated by rationalism, technology, entertainment, comfort, and political correctness, it is heartening to find that people still find such immense wisdom and comfort in the writings of the melancholic Dane whose philosophical aim was to undermine the sacred cows of modernity and to call us to face our hidden despair and existential darkness. There seems to be no end to the exponential growth in Kierkegaard scholarship in the past few decades and Kierkegaard’s writings have been the subject of intense scrutiny and analysis in not only philosophy but also in theology, literary theory, psychology, and religious studies, to name just a few. Kierkegaard himself would undoubtedly find some humor in this development as a part of his overall philosophical project was to provide a full-frontal assault on the growing dominance of ‘objective’ thinking and the hyper-professionalization of all areas of human thought and life. This book provides yet another attempt to engage with the biting wit and philosophical insights of Kierkegaard’s philosophy.
