The Paradoxical Rationality of Soren Kierkegaard

Full Product Description

Soren Kierkegaard deliberately feigned irrationality in many of his pseudonymous writings in order to present a rational argument about reason and faith. Richard McCombs posits that Kierkegaard's strategy of revealing the philosophical and religious underpinnings of his thought was both instructive and misguided. Focusing on pseudonymous works by Johannes Climacus and Anti-Climacus, McCombs discusses Kierkegaard's irrationality and the manner in which it bolsters important truths about rationality. He reveals Kierkegaard striving for a single, integrated self that thinks, feels, wills, acts, and communicates with purpose. This fresh reading of Kierkegaard engages an essential problem in the philosophy of religion - the difference between what is understood by reason and what must be taken on faith.

The Paradoxical Rationality of Soren Kierkegaard by Richard Phillip McCombs was published by Indiana University Press in March 2013. The ISBN for The Paradoxical Rationality of Soren Kierkegaard is 9780253006479.
