Kierkegaard, Sören: Purity of Heart, v.1, 23 October 2008.
Sören Kierkegaard (18131855)
Purity of Heart Is to Will One Thing (1846)
Translated from the Danish by Douglas V. Steere (19011995)
This work aims at preparing the reader to enter into the "office of confession," and probes deeply into the inner motivations for choosing to become an authentic self. Considered a classic of devotional literature, it sometimes reads obscurely (e.g., the "Good" is never really defined), yet at other times is radiantly clear (e.g., on the call to live self-consciously and with responsibility). As with all of SK's non-pseudonymous works, "Purity of Heart" makes for worthy reading which will provoke and challenge you.
