Summary

Father of existentialism or the Eeyore of philosophy?
 
 
Known as the first modern theologian, Søren
 
Kierkegaard was a prolific writer of the Danish ‘golden age’. A philosopher,
 
poet and social critic, his key concepts of angst, despair, and the
 
importance of the individual, influenced many 20th-century philosophers and
 
literature throughout Europe.
 
 
Dave Robinson and Oscar Zarate’s brilliant graphic
 
guide explains what Kierkegaard means by 'anti-philosophy', and tells an
 
illuminating story of the strange life and ideas of a man tortured by his
 
attempts to change the very priorities of Western thought.
