Soren Kierkegaard

Either/Or

Soren Kierkegaard

$22.99

Paperback
In Either/Or, using the voices of two characters - the aesthetic young man of part one, called simply 'A', and the ethical Judge Vilhelm of the second section - Kierkegaard reflects upon the search for a meaningful existence, contemplating subjects as diverse as Mozart, drama, boredom, and, in the famous Seducer's Diary, the cynical seduction and ultimate rejection of a young, beautiful woman. A masterpiece of duality, Either/Or is a brilliant exploration of the conflict between the aesthetic and the ethical - both meditating ironically and seductively upon Epicurean pleasures, and eloquently expounding the noble virtues of a morally upstanding life.

- Publisher A masterpiece of duality, Soren Kierkegaard's work explores the conflict between aesthetic and the ethical. Using two characters, he explores the virtues of a morally upstanding life, as well as contemplating the more seductive Epicurean pleasures.
