Editorial Reviews

Review

"The definitive edition of the Writings. The first volume . . . indicates the scholarly value of the entire series: an introduction setting the work in the context of Kierkegaard's development; a remarkably clear translation; and concluding sections of intelligent notes."--Library Journal

7 of 7 people found the following review helpful By Eluros on October 7, 2008
Format: Paperback
This translation of one of Soren Kierkegaard's most famous work is impressive in its ability to communicate not only the denotative arguments, but many of the literary and connotative thoughts behind them. I've only other read one other translation, but this one, when compared to it, is much more adept at transforming the work into an English-language masterpiece. As well, the supplementary material is quite thorough and useful for further understanding of the work. My only complaint is that there is occasionally a bit of overcomplication in the notation-- sometimes, one uses a footnote only to see a page reference to the supplementary material. Upon finding the page with the supplementary material, one reads that they must find another page with a more thorough explanation. These instances, however, are very rare, and by no means take away from the excellent quality of the work.

Read it as recommended by the author. Skip a few pages or a whole chapter and start reading wherever you like. In this way you find new connections and meanings between his ideas or deep thoughts. It is worth trying.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I love Either/Or. I really relate to a lot of the philosophy and development of the soul. I've heard the first one is often considered more interesting, but I related more to the second. Probably too long and dense for people who either aren't serious about philosophy or Christian reflection, or can't handle reading really long books.
