Soren Kierkegaard (1813-1855) has been proposed as the 'father' of existentialism, as a forerunner of post-modernism and as the proponent of a purely humanistic religiosity. According to Julia Watson, all these approaches suppress the uniquely challenging cast who saw the need to treat Christianity as a personal existential adventure in which one is not afraid to risk oneself. In "Kierkegaard," Watson uses Danish critical sources to classify the legendary thinker as one of a radical Christian persuasion.
Kierkegaard raised and addressed vital philosophical and ethical-religious questions about existence in a way that continues to be relevant across disciplines, generations and cultures. This book distinctly and simply introduces Kierkegaard to new readers as a Christian thinker.
