Routledge Philosophy Guidebook to Kierkegaard and Fear and Trembling

Routledge (2003)

Abstract

Kierkegaard, described by Wittgenstein as "by far the most profound thinker of the [nineteenth] century," has influenced a wide range of philosophers and theologians. Fear and Trembling , which investigates the nature of faith and its relation to ethics via a discussion of the story of Abraham and Isaac, is one of Kierkegaard's most compelling and popular works. Kierkegaard and Fear and Trembling introduces and assesses: * Kierkegaard's life and the background to Fear and Trembling * The ideas and text of Fear and Trembling , possibly his most famous work * Kierkegaard's continuing importance in philosophy.
