Kierkegaard on Sin and Salvation

Soren Kierkegaard (1813-1855) is simultaneously one of the most obscure philosophers of the Western world and one of the most influential. His writings have influenced atheists and faithful alike. Yet despite his now pervasive influence, there is still widespread disagreement on many of the most important aspects of his thought. Kierkegaard was deliberately obscure in his philosophical writings, forcing his reader to interpret and reflect. But at the same time that Kierkegaard produced his esoteric, pseudonymous philosophical writings, he was also producing simpler, direct religious writings. Since his death the connections between these two sets of writings have been debated, ignored or denied by commentators. Here W. Glenn Kirkconnell undertakes a thorough examination of the two halves of Kierkegaard's authorship, demonstrating their ethical and religious relationship and the unifying themes of the signed and pseudonymous works. In particular the book examines Kierkegaard's understanding of the fall of the self and its recovery and the implications of his entire corpus for the life of the individual.

W. Glenn Kirkconnell is Adjunct Professor of Philosophy and Religious Studies at Santa Fe College, USA.


Kirkconnell's attempt to read Kierkegaard the way that Kierkegaard wanted to be read, with the aesthetic works in one hand and the edifying works in the other, promises to have a deep impact on the future of Kierkegaard research. This book deserves a wide audience. - Lee Barratt, Stager Professor of Theology, Lancaster Theological Seminary, USA 'The treatment of the rarely discussed Interlude in Fragments is thoughtful and insightful and well worth pondering...' - Journal of Religious Studies
