Discover a new understanding of Kierkegaard's thought and his life, a story filled with romance, betrayal, humor, and riots.


Søren Kierkegaard indeed lived an extraordinary life. His story is filled with romance and betrayal, family curses against God and acts of grace toward others, humor, drama, quiet observations, and riot-inducing polemics. The Danish philosopher, theologian, social critic, and writer is now widely recognized as one of the world's most profound writers and thinkers. His influence on philosophy, literature, and on secular and religious life and thought is incalculable. He is known, amongst other things, as "the father of existentialism" and as the man who introduced the ideas of anxiety and the leap of faith to the modern imagination. Philosophers and theologians influenced by Kierkegaard include Karl Barth, Emil Brunner, Albert Camus, Jean-Paul Sartre, Thomas Merton, and numerous others. His attack on Christianized nationalism helped inspire the pastor and martyr Dietrich Bonhoeffer to resist the Nazis. He has inspired novelists such as Mann and Kafka and poets like Eliot and Auden.


Yet one is hard pressed to find a biography that explains simply what Kierkegaard's life was like or gives a straightforward overview of his books … until now. Kierkegaard: A Single Life highlights the interesting and controversial aspects of Kierkegaard's life, telling a story that few today know, and provides brief, straightforward overviews of his key works.
