Summary
"On 1 September 1855, Soren Kierkegaard wrote in the last number of The Instant that his task was the Socratic one of 'revising' the definition of what it is to be a Christian. Yet he made it clear that his project entailed reform of the individual's way of life, not correction of doctrine." "Julia Watkin therefore presents Kierkegaard as a Christian thinker, but as one who, 'without authority', boldly challenged his contemporaries through an authorship that also Socratically forced them to take a position of choice between different life-styles and world-views." "A key feature of the book is the presentation of Kierkegaard's two pictures of Christianity. On the one hand, Judge William's Christian ethics support and inspire culture, on the other, Christianity is shown as 'asocial' and counter-cultural. It is in this tension of Christian outlooks, both derived from the New Testament, that Kierkegaard's paradoxical attitude to Danish Lutheran Christianity, his polemic against the Church, is to be understood." "Through discussion of Kierkegaard's place in the Christian tradition, Watkin also shows why Kierkegaard has been hailed internationally as a significant figure for theology, philosophy, psychology and literature. Kierkegaard's voice not only spoke to his own time, it also speaks to the many faiths and cultures of the modern world."--BOOK JACKET
