Item description for Kierkegaard As Humanist: Discovering My Self (Mcgill-Queen's Studies in the History of Ideas) by Arnold B. Come...
Kierkegaard as Humanist is an extensive analysis of Kierkegaard's concepts of self, freedom, possibility, and necessity. Topics examined include the essential and continuing duality of the self, the process by which the self becomes self-consciousness, freedom as the dialectical tension between necessity and possibility and between temporality and eternity, the indeterminate/determinate leap as freedom's form, and love as freedom's content. Come finds in Kierkegaard's writings an anthropological ontology that is derived by a phenomenological method and distinct from those Kierkegaardian materials that are clearly theological in a Christian sense; he concludes that Kierkegaard's anthropological ontology is independent of his Christian theology.

Journey to the depts of human mind and faith May 11, 2000
Kieerkegaard is a hard philosopher-if it is right to call him a philosopher- to interpret and all new eforts to reinterpret him bring us to terra incognito of human mind and our crisis of faith in the modern age. I believe Kierkegaard is one of the few to catch this point with novelists like Dostoevsky and reading about him is fabolous.
