Dall'editore: An extensive study of how Kierkegaard's ideas moved from the relative obscurity of Copenhagen to the center of European intellectual culture.
With a wealth of detail, this book traces the acceptance and rejection of Soren Kierkegaard's thought in the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries. Engaging the reader with biographical sketches of Kierkegaard and his contemporaries, Habib Malik presents a fascinating historical narrative of the early reception of Kierkegaard's thought. At the center of this story is an exploration of how Kierkegaard's ideas moved from the relative obscurity of Copenhagen at the time of his death in 1855 to the center of European intellectual culture in the mid-1920s.
During his lifetime and the following seventy years, Kierkegaard's philosophical and theological legacies experienced considerable fragmentation, and the process of early reception often was marked by contention and controversy. Contemporaries like H.C. rsted and H.C. Andersen did not fathom his significance; others, like his close associate Rasmus Nielsen, proved disappointing after showing initial promise in understanding his ideas; still others, like Hans Brchner, probed deeply but did not concur. These scholars often created or perpetuated misconceptions, and it was not until the late nineteenth century that the intellectual perceptions of Kierkegaard began to change. In the midst of shifting philosophical and theological situations and the swift rise of the Nietzsche vogue, Kierkegaard finally emerged with force onto the European stage.
Receiving Soren Kierkegaard is the first serious attempt to chronicle the early "lost years" of Kierkegaard's intellectual legacy. It analyzes Kierkegaard's profound impact on the lives and thought of such figures as rsted, Ibsen, Jacobsen, Brandes, Nietzsche, Dilthy, Unamuno, Joyce, Rilke, Kafka, Lukcs, and Kassner.
"The vitality of Kierkegaard's thought is the central theme of the fascinating story culminating in the world-wide rediscovery of a thinker who wrote in a minor language 150 years ago.... Nothing I know of has the length, breadth, and depth of Malik's treatment." Professor Emeritus Howard V. Hong, St. Olaf College
"Malik's detailed exposition of the historic events, his summaries of positions of persons opposed to Kierkegaard, and his review of the spread of knowledge about him is an important contribution to the intellectual history of nineteenth and twentieth centuries." Professor Robert L. Perkins, Stetson University; Editor, International Kierkegaard Commentary
