Studies in Kierkegaard’s Theory of Faith


Gerhard Schreiber

Faith was not only the theme of Søren Kierkegaard’s life, but also the systematic center of his thought. The studies collected in this volume represent an attempt to understand Kierkegaard’s theory of faith from different perspectives and on different levels of analysis. Not only will the central aspects and fundamental challenges of his theory be illuminated, the development of his theory of faith, which is marked by a wide array of educational and discursive contexts, will also be investigated against the background of his engagement with the philosophical-theological debates of his time and close involvement with other thinkers in his immediate environment. The volume concludes with a glance at the history of the translation and reception of Kierkegaard’s work.
