Crossing the boundaries of philosophy, theology, psychology and fiction, the work of Danish philosopher Soren Kierkegaard transformed nineteenth-century thought, and is clearly and concisely outlined in this readable new introduction. Michael Watts presents Kierkegaard - the founder of Existentialism and the first to define the nature of "angst" - through the philosopher¯s prolific writings, drawing on such key works as Fear and Trembling and Either-Or. Highlighting the central ideas of this complex and fascinating figure, from his theories on truth, how to live an ethical life and the purpose of existence, Watts also offers detailed insight into Kierkegaard¯s turbulent personal background, intertwined as it was with his intellectual life. Featuring a useful glossary of key terms, this coherent guide will allow both students and general readers to formulate their own conclusions about Kierkegaard¯s continuing relevance to twenty-first century concerns.
