I still love Kierkegaard

I still love Kierkegaard | Knowledge Broker |

Søren Kierkegaard was the master of irony and paradox before both became debased by careless overuse. He was an existentialist a century before Jean-Paul Sarte, more rigorously post-modern than postmodernism, and a theist whose attacks on religion bit far deeper than many of those of today’s new atheists. Kierkegaard is not so much a thinker for our time but a timeless thinker, whose work is pertinent for all ages yet destined to be fully attuned to none.

Kenneth Mikkelsen's insight:

Kierkegaard is the dramatic thunderstorm at the heart of philosophy and his provocation is more valuable than ever.

Great writing by Julian Baggini.
