Kierkegaard in Copenhagen

Hans P. Halvorson

ENROLLMENT BY APPLICATION OR INTERVIEW. DEPARTMENTAL PERMISSION REQUIRED.

We will study the life and work of Soren Kierkegaard (1813-1855). His mission as an author begins with a journal entry he wrote while overlooking the sea north of Copenhagen: "What I really need is to get clear about what I must do, not what I must know, except insofar as knowledge must precede every act. What matters is to find a purpose." We will follow in Kierkegaard's footsteps, both literally and figuratively.

Sample reading list:
Soren Kierkegaard, Philosophical Fragments
Soren Kierkegaard, Concluding Unscientific Postscript
Soren Kierkegaard, The Concept of Anxiety
