About the Author:

Merold Westphal is Professor of Philosophy at Fordham University and author of History and Truth in Hegel's 'Phenomenology' (Humanities, 1979) and God, Guilt, and Death: An Existential Phenomenology of Religion (Indiana, 1987).

Review:

Westphal shows us that Kierkegaard's philosophy makes an important contribution to what we now call the 'critique of ideology, embracing both political and sociological concerns, and squarely based upon as affirmation of human reason a reason that is fully aware of its own nature, neither shirking its responsibilities nor overstepping its capacities. For those who would like to get beyond the myth of Kierkegaard as an apostle of the 'solitary self, Kierkegaard s Critique of Reason and Society is just the book to read. --Stephen N. Dunning, University of Pennsylvania

I recommend the book highly, both to Kierkegaard specialists and to others interested in rationality, human nature, and society. --Faith and Philosophy

Merold Westphal is a knowing interpreter who has penetrated Kierkegaard s mind and is faithful to Kierkegaard's own interest. . . . In a helpful and stimulating way, he also brings to his interpretation of Kierkegaard an intimate knowledge of three other thinkers whose lives overlapped with Kierkegaard's: Hegel, Marx, and Nietzsche. --Pacific Theological Review
