Kierkegaard, Eve and Metaphors of Birth

Full Product Description

There has been a recent revival of interest in reading Kierkegaard as an ontologist, as a thinker who engages with questions about the kinds of entity or process that constitute ultimate reality. This new way of reading Kierkegaard stands alongside a revival of interest in ontology and metaphysics more generally. This highly original book concentrates on the claim that Kierkegaard focuses in part on ontological questions and on issues pertaining to the nature of being as a whole. Alison Assiter asserts that Being, for Kierkegaard, following Schelling and Kant, can be read in terms of conceptions of birthing - the capacity to give birth as well as the notion of a birthing body. She goes on to argue that the story offered by Kierkegaard in The Concept of Anxiety about the origin of freedom connects with a birthing body, and that Kierkegaard offers a speculative hypothesis, in terms of metaphors of birthing, about the nature of Being.

Kierkegaard, Eve and Metaphors of Birth by Alison Assiter was published by Rowman & Littlefield International in April 2015. The ISBN for Kierkegaard, Eve and Metaphors of Birth is 9781783483259.
