Excellent. I have long respected Hannay and his work, and his voice is one of those worth hearing on Soren Kierkegaard today...There are few books on Kierkegaard I can think of by philosophers of Hannay's quality. A must for all those with a serious interest in the main figures of the post-Kantian European philosophical tradition.Richard Schacht, University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign
Very impressive. Hannay is the doyen of Kierkegaard studies today and his views on him are informed by years of reading and reflection.Michael Inwood, Trinity College, Oxford
...an immense contribution to Kierkegaard scholarship. In this volume he draws on his wide knowledge of Kierkegaard's life, publications, and journal entries to provide a sharp and sustained focus on the philosophical content of Kierkegaard work. The result is a lively sense of the range and relevance of the many-faceted thought of this absolutely essential figure.Hubert Dreyfus, University of California, Berkeley
Kierkegaard's writings are difficult territory, and Alastair Hannay is the most reliable of guides.Jonathan Rée, editor of Kierkegaard: a Critical Reader
