Editorial Reviews

Review

"C. Stephen Evans has been established for decades as one of the most highly respected scholars of Kierkegaard's writings, and his newest book offers a concise introduction to Kierkegaard's thought, with particular attention to its significance for philosophy. ...a tribute to Kierkegaard's work."
Rick Anthony Furtak, Notre Dame Philosophical Reviews


"....distinct but complimentary introduction[s] that open fruitful opportunities to engage many dimension of Kierkegaard's corpus.... excellent and well written...."
Paul Martens, Baylor University, Perspectives in Religious Studies


"...structured thematically.... Evans's intention is to help a reader see the broad outlines of Kierkegaard's philosophical thought.... offers different ideas about the function of an introduction.... provide a means to begin to access this important thinker."
Peder Jothen, St. Olaf College, Faith and Philosophy


"Walsh's book is a clear, reliable, and erudite guide to a somewhat neglected aspect of Kierkegaard's authorship. It represents a considerable scholarly achievement, and will be essential reading ..."
The Journal of Religious Studies

Format: Paperback
This introduction succeeds in making Kierkegaard's philosophy accessible to a general audience. Evans does a convincing job of placing Kierkegaard's oeuvre as firmly Christian and argues against readings of his works as post-modern (and particularly as relativist), and minimizes their connection to Sartrean existentialism, but still offers useful information on why those interpretations are possible.

Dr Evans does a thorough job outlining and evaluating the major themes evident in the many and varied works of Soren Kierkegaard. Moreover, Dr. Evans makes it very clear that one cannot merely read Kierkegaard and glean an understanding. One needs to read, reflect, and apply to one's own life the subjects covered in order to have a complete appreciation for what Kierkegaard is conveying to both seculars and Christians in an ever more complex socio-religious societal framework. A must read for anyone wanting to begin and understanding of the brilliance found in kierkegaard's philosophy.

Format: Paperback
I found this book to be a very easy-to-read, beautifully written book. It stands out as an introductory text to Kierkegaard for several reasons: (1) It is very easy to understand; and (2) It covers some subjects that other writers do not cover (for example, Evans actually spends time discussing Works of Love, which tends to get ignored).
Evans is a Christian philosopher (as was Kierkegaard), so the two of them naturally make for good dialogue partners.
