Soren Kierkegaard was a Danish philosopher, theologian, literary stylist and social critic. Born in 1813 in Copenhagen, his philosophical work addressed living as a single individual and the importance of personal choice. A famously fierce critic of the idealist thinkers of his time, including Hegel, Goethe, and Hans Christian Andersen, he is regarded as the first existentialist philosopher, and his Fear and Trembling is one of the classics of modern philosophy. Here you will find insights from his greatest works, in the "Great Thinkers on Modern Life" series, which highlights ideas most relevant to ordinary, everyday dilemmas.

Praise For Kierkegaard

There is a good deal to be learned from these
little primers. 

The School of Life offers radical ways to help us raid the
treasure trove of human knowledge.

Thoroughly welcoming and approachable. If the six books in
The School of Life can teach even a few readers to pay passionate heed to the
world—to notice things—they will have been an unquestionable success.
— John Banville
