Encounters with Kierkegaard Zusammenfassung

Encounters with Kierkegaard: A Life as Seen by His Contemporaries Soren Kierkegaard

Encounters with Kierkegaard is a collection of every known eyewitness account of the great Danish thinker. Through the sharp observations of family members, friends and acquaintances, supporters and opponents, the life story of this elusive and remarkable figure comes into focus, offering a rare portrait of Kierkegaard the man. Often viewed by his contemporaries as a person who deliberately cultivated an air of mystery and eccentricity, Soren Kierkegaard (1813-55) has been, then and now, a subject of great speculation. His startling attack on the established church, his broken engagement with a young woman from a respected family, and his searing criticisms of literary figures - from the editors of The Corsair to Hans Christian Andersen - are among the acts that brought him much notoriety during his short lifetime. Yet arriving at a sense of the philosopher's personality and the motives behind his behaviour has been a difficult task. He left no memoirs or autobiography, but in the enormous canon of his published writings, the author and person Soren Kierkegaard is problematically present in a welter of disguises. An indispensable path to understanding what he was like as a person, maintains Bruce Kirmmse, is through the observations of his contemporaries. These accounts, ranging from the writings of Meir Aron Goldschmidt, editor of The Corsair, to the recollections of Kierkegaard's fiancee, are organised around the major episodes of the philosopher's life. They enable us to glimpse, among many things, his spiritual and intellectual development, to get a sense of what it was like to be the object of his friendship or his wrath, and to examine various persons' opinions about his relationship with his young fiancee. The memories of this woman, Regine Olsen, who later married Fritz Schlegel, are among the most moving passages: they reveal her profound suffering, her personal understanding of Kierkegaard, and the satisfaction she ultimately felt, knowing that he took her with him into history. This collection of first-hand accounts invites the reader to compare and interpret a wealth of fascinating stories, and in the end forms an intriguing do-it-yourself biography for both the scholar and general reader.

Encounters with Kierkegaard Bewertungen

Meticulously researched and beautifully produced. * Religious Studies Review *
Kierkegaard left no memoirs or autobiography.... However, many of his contemporaries wrote down observations about him. All of these that are still available have been collected into this impressive volume. They cover all the major episodes of his life and provide an invaluable glimpse into his spiritual and intellectual development in all its agony and glory.... Meticulously researched and beautifully produced.---Peter C. Hodgson, Religious Studies Review
