Hardcover. 202 pages. Dimensions: 8.5in. x 5.7in. x 0.7in.Kierkegaard is something more than a witty writer and a religious thinker. This book offers us Kierkegaards approach to history. His views are quite and nbsp;original and authentic. History and Human Self are, for Kierkegaard, absolutely intertwined in a way that human individuals become the only historical agents while the future becomes the crucial historical dimension instead of the past. History, for Kierkegaard, means human decisions about the future instead of knowledge of the past. Kierkegaards views on history are compared with those of Hegels and Heideggers in order: a) to establish the necessary philosophical context to Kierkegaards thoughts and b) to point out the authenticity and the philosophical usefulness of the Kierkegaardian approach to history.

About this title


History doesn't have to mean only an effort to know the past. It can be instead, according to Kierkegaard, a willful and personal choice regarding the creation of the future. Kierkegaard offers us an amazing new approach to the problem of what is history and who makes it.
