About this title


A very well written biography that is a little sad. Kierkegaard was a "ghostly" figure that, while full of brilliant thought, could never manage to interface with life. My views on some of his wirings were affected by this work, and I am curious to go back and read them with the knowledge that Kierkegaard plays intricate thought experiments within the pages of his pseudonymous works. This book reads like a novel, is full of many interesting anecdotes (although many of them sad), and a good overview of SK's philosophical works.
