"....a guide of any merit should be welcome, and this one surely will be.... This book is remarkably free of typos or editing errors of any kind. It is to be highly recommended both for Kierkegaard scholars and for novices or those who want to explore for the first time one of the major works of a writer whom Wittgenstein praised as the greatest religious writer of the 19th century."
--Norman Lillegard, University of Tennessee-Martin, Philosophy in Review
"One of the most noteworthy features of Kierkegaard's Concluding Unscientific Postscript: A Critical Guide is that it lives up to its subtitle. This collection truly is a guide to the work as a whole. That it serves as such is no small achievement, and it is surely a credit to the editor, Rick Anthony Furtak.... The dozen essays collected here speak to the largest themes of this notoriously difficult and overlong work and stay admirably focused on what the reader needs to keep in mind very generally to come to grips with the text.... This collection overall contains significant steps forward in our understanding of this complex text, the difficulty of which continues to reward the sharpest critical study."
--Jeffrey Hanson, Australian Catholic University, Notre Dame Philosophical Reviews
These 2010 essays offer a plurality of critical approaches to Kierkegaard's fundamental text of existential philosophy. They cover hotly debated topics such as the tension between the Socratic-philosophical and the Christian-religious; the identity of Kierkegaard's pseudonym 'Johannes Climacus'; his conceptions of paradoxical faith and of passionate understanding; and his contemporary pertinence.

Furtak is an ear tree for what has been done recently by publications on this deep end of Kierkegaard. An expert on the humor of Kierkegaard provides insight into what that looks like to the most recent attempt to understand our culture as someone who likes jokes would notice a host of strategies for pnagasaki to poke fun at pokelahoma City for getting identified with the wrong kind of administrative routine. Christianity still has writers who might have an end on our side when Kierkegaard has all the laughter on his side. Near the beginning of Either/Or, which was the first successful act of Kierkegaard's career as a writer, Kierkegaard imagines a group of old gods laughing at his request to always have the laughter on his side. Christianity furnishes a trinity of now, forever and always to replace the gods of particular times and spaces with the inwardness that truly exists with such imaginary friends.
