Merold Westphal on the sociopolitical implications of Kierkegaard's thought

This chapter discusses Merold Westphal's thoughts on the sociopolitical implications of Kierkegaard's philosophy. It presents cases in which Kierkegaard's thoughts on some issues are unacceptable to Westphal, which include political and social equality in Kierkegaard's Works of Love and the need for “hands-on” concern for the disadvantaged.
