Kierkegaard, Sören: Philosophical Fragments, v.1, 5 November 2008.
Sören Kierkegaard (18131855)
Translated from the Danish by David F. Swenson (18761940), translation revised by Howard V. Hong. Originally published by Princeton University Press, Princeton, New Jersey, 1936.
From Norman Wirzbas review:
Soren Kierkegaard's pseudonymous work, Philosophical Fragments, is a deceptively simple text. Its central concern is to delineate, via a "thought experiment," the possibility of "going beyond Socrates." Kierkegaard, under the guise of Johannes Climacus, wants not only to show the pitfalls of Socrates' position and the merits of Christianity, but that these two worlds of thought are categorically different. The difficulty in delineating this difference becomes most acute when we realize that the Socratic thought world represents the highest human achievement. In effect we cannot think Christianity from within our own human resources because those resources always bear the stamp of Socrates. And so the problem becomes, How can we think Christianity at all, given that this thought will not be determined by ourselves? In other words, revelation is never something we expect. It is unthinkable.
