I feel new neurological connections form as I read Kierkegaard's words. Oct 31, John Lucy rated it it was amazing. This is one of Kierkegaard's self-signed books, which basically means that it's straight-forward and more devotional than creatively philosophical like his pseudonym writings.

And if you know what's good for you then you'll read this book. Eighteen individual discourses, all based in Scripture, that will convince you by conviction to lead a more God-focused life. Think you're already doing that? Think again. There's really nothing else to say here about this one. It's Kierkegaard. The guy is grea This is one of Kierkegaard's self-signed books, which basically means that it's straight-forward and more devotional than creatively philosophical like his pseudonym writings.

The guy is great, his writings are greater. Aug 24, I-kai rated it liked it. For some reason, I just couldn't quite get engaged. It's beautiful writing nevertheless. Some discourses I particularly enjoyed with short comments: the first discourse of "Love Will Hide a Multitude of Sins" there is a beautiful phenomenological description of love ; "The Lord Gave, and the Lord Took Away; Blessed Be the Name of the Lord" reflects on Job as the teacher who does not impart doctrines but "lives out his teaching," very useful for thinking about the role of role models in educatio For some reason, I just couldn't quite get engaged.

Some discourses I particularly enjoyed with short comments: the first discourse of "Love Will Hide a Multitude of Sins" there is a beautiful phenomenological description of love ; "The Lord Gave, and the Lord Took Away; Blessed Be the Name of the Lord" reflects on Job as the teacher who does not impart doctrines but "lives out his teaching," very useful for thinking about the role of role models in education; "Patience in Expectancy" among the discourses on patience, this one struck me as most lively and persuasive.

Two other discourses that might be of particular interest: "Think about Your Creator in the Days of Your Youth" speaks of "concerned truths" in the beginning, which seems like the precursor of "subjective truths" that is discussed in the Postscript; "Against Cowardliness" has a discussion of resolution that should be extremely interesting to compare with Heidegger's account of Erschlossenheit. Kierkegaard is a psychologist in the highest sense of the word, it seems to me.

And his strength comes out in this book in particular when he discusses phenomena of self-deception. For example someone who gives excuses, pretends to be resolute, but is in fact avoiding actually making a choice or commitment; or someone who is not patient but can nevertheless have the appearance of being so; or how "worldly wisdom" or sagacity, as it is translated in the book, becomes seductive traps on one's way towards having faith in god Jun 03, Darrell rated it really liked it.

Readers also enjoyed. Kierkegaard strongly criticised both the Hegelianism of his time and what he saw as the empty formalities of the Church of Denmark. Much of his work deals with religious themes such as faith in God, the institution of the Christian Church, Christian ethics and theology, and the emotions and feelings of individuals when faced with life choices.

His early work was written under various pseudonyms who present their own distinctive viewpoints in a complex dialogue. Kierkegaard left the task of discovering the meaning of his works to the reader, because "the task must be made difficult, for only the difficult inspires the noble-hearted".

Scholars have interpreted Kierkegaard variously as an existentialist, neo-orthodoxist, postmodernist, humanist, and individualist. Crossing the boundaries of philosophy, theology, psychology, and literature, he is an influential figure in contemporary thought.

Eighteen Upbuilding Discourses

In Kierkegaard began his dual authorship of pseudonymous writings on philosophical and theological subjects, and religious works penned under his own name. While his purpose for the pseudonyms was mainly to undermine the Hegelian "system" and an uncritical and dispassionate view of one's relationship with God, the religious discourses, written to accompany the philosophical works, served to underscore that Kierkegaard was a religious author from the beginning—a fact which was overlooked, and which he was disposed to point out. Though these works are religious in nature, they are not devoid of philosophy. They are a ready antidote for all thoughtless critics who say that Kierkegaard's religious disposition was tacked on, or that it may be easily discarded so as to reach some supposed kernel of thought.

His discourses stress love, joy, faith, gratitude, thanksgiving, peace, adversity, impartiality, and equality before God and recommends them to the single individual. These discourses are not the same as a sermon because a sermon is preached to a congregation while a discourse can be carried on between several people or even with oneself. These discourses or conversations should be "upbuilding", which means one would build up the other person, or oneself, rather than tear down in order to build up. Kierkegaard said: "Although this little book which is called ' discourses ,' not sermons , because its author does not have authority to 'preach', [2] "upbuilding discourses," not discourses for upbuilding, because the speaker by no means claims to be a 'teacher' wishes to be only what it is, a superfluity , and desires only to remain in hiding". The reason I have always spoken of myself as being without authority is that I personally have felt that there was too much of the poetic in me, furthermore that I feel aided by something higher, and also that I am put together backwards, but then, too, because I perceive that the profound suffering of my life and also my guilt make me need an enormous measure of Christianity, while at the same time I am fearful of making it too heavy for someone who may not need so great a measure. Of course neither the God-man nor an apostle can have such a concern-but then I am just a poor human being.
