Isolated Self PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

Isolated Self free pdf Often overlooked by Kierkegaard scholars, On the Concept of Irony -- Kierkegaards dissertation -- is in fact a foundational text that established some of Kierkegaards most important ideas on the self. In this book K Brian Soderquist restores this important work to its proper place, offering a rare full-length study of the text that shows how and why Kierkegaard would return to the ideas he developed there throughout his entire career. Thoroughly examining "On the Concept of Irony", Soderquist uncovers the most comprehensive account of the double movement that is so important in Kierkegaards later works. Hinging on irony, the double movement describes the way existence pushes us to move from an immediate, unreflective life toward a self-developed worldview. Soderquist bores into this notion of irony, reconstructing the way it was conceived in Kierkegaards time by analysing its use by related thinkers such as Hegel, Friedrich Schlegel, Johan Ludivig Heiberg, Hans Lassen Martensen, and Poul Martin Moller. Altogether Soderquist shows how Kierkegaards concept of irony, as demonstrated in this very early work, is crucial to understanding his pivotal thoughts on selfhood.
