Summary of Papers and Journals Summary of Papers and Journals Reviews for Papers and Journals An Excerpt from Papers and Journals
Drawn from Kierkegaard’s private papers and journals, this meticulously edited volume of philosophical musings, theoretical arguments, and descriptions of everyday life sheds light on the conflicts that gave birth to his radical observations on the nature of choice, offers insights into his rejection of conventional Christianity and the formation of his belief in the “leap of faith,” and reveals the moral intensity with which he lived his life.
