Editorial Reviews

Review

"...a major achievement in contemporary Kierkegaard scholarship...As Stewart points out, the relationship between Kierkegaard and Hegel has been a common topic of comment in general histories of nineteenth-century thought, and the book will therefore be of interest beyond the world of those taking or conducting courses in Kierkegaard's thought." George Pattison, King's College, Cambridge

Book Description

Jon Stewart's groundbreaking study is a major re-evaluation of the complex relations between the philosophies of Kierkegaard and Hegel. The standard view on the subject is that Kierkegaard defined himself as explicitly anti-Hegalian, indeed that he viewed Hegel's philosophy with disdain. Jon Stewart shows convincingly that Kierkegaard's criticism was not of Hegel but of a number of contemporary Danish Hegelians. Scholars working in the tradition of Continental philosophy will find this an insightful and provocative book. It will also appeal to scholars in religious studies and the history of ideas.

Jon never ceases to amaze. A first rate television show, a searing critique of American politics, and a substantive, unorthodox analysis of the dual roles of pure immanence and ontological locatability, all in one career. If you like the way he tears apart politicians' hypocrisies, you'll love the way he hysterically compartmentalizes the Abrahamic theological tradition and the Silentio poesis.

There may be people starving in the streets in the U.S., but you'll never think the same way about Hegel's foundational starvation (Aushungerung) again!

People who are buying this book thinking that it is Jon Stewart of the Daily Show's book are obviously NOT thinking. Look at the title!

And the people who are leaving 1 star reviews to an innocent author because they are not intelligent enough to read a title should not be reading books.

Format: Hardcover
Seriously folks, I was kind of surprised when I went to this book's page and found the reviews covered with references to the Daily Show. I love Jon Stewart, but, as a Kierkegaard freak, I did recognize this book as not of his ouerve. But the book itself deserves a review, does it not?
Actually, it is quite good. The dominant work on the subject is Kierkegaard's Relation to Hegel by Neils Thulstup Kierkegaard's relation to Hegel and Stewart spends a good number of pages dumping on it. The essential problem was that Kierkegaard was a hostage in the cold war. He was banned in the soviet union and devoured in the west. Why? Because Marx's dialectic is a adaptation of Hegel's and since, especially in his magnum opus, Concluding Unscientific PostscriptConcluding Unscientific Postscript to Philosophical Fragments, Volume 1 (Kierkegaard's Writings, Vol 12.1)Kierkegaard is extremely critical of Hegel (it also came out two years before the Communist Manifesto), the Communists took it for unscientific (it says so in the title) claptrap, while, in the west, it was seen as prophetic. It was actually neither and now that they have torn down that wall, we have a more sober assessment.

Format: Hardcover
Attention Amazon shoppers, Jon "The Daily Show" Stewart's mentioning this book in his promotion is, of course, a joke. But the joke's on you if you aren't paying attention. Viewers of "The Daily Show" know that one of the underlying morals of Jon's humor is: BE AWARE, BE SKEPTICAL. Be analytical. Pay attention to what you read, see, hear, in the news, from politicians, from corporations, in ads, in propaganda, in Orwellian doublespeak now commonly known as Bush-speak. So don't be mad at this absurd link. Laugh, and appreciate the funny guy Stewart's bravery to poke profound fun everywhere he leaves his mark - from "The Daily Show" to "Crossfire" to Amazon. (And if you're a Kierkegaard fan, you know you want the book if you are willing to pay upwards of umpteen bucks for it, so don't delay! And pick up a copy of "America: The Book" while you're at it.)

In related news, "Daily Show" fans, we're in a period of American politics and democracy that deserve and even DEMAND lots of attention and lots of skepticism from all us citizen types, so PLEASE, practice your skepticism (and your humor) until you get really good at it.

More power to the people!

It's not Amazon's fault that there is more than one person named Jon Stewart. It's the CONSUMER'S responsibility to do the research and figure out what the Daily Show's Jon Stewart wrote and what he didn't. All one needs to do is look at the back cover of this book (ON THIS SITE) and any moron can see it's some professor not the comedian. The stupidity of people STILL amazes me; and it amazes me that it still amazes me. (heavy sigh...)
