Johannes Climacus: Or: A Life of Doubt

Johannes Climacus: Or: A Life of Doubt Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Johannes Climacus is a novel, as well as a work of philosophy, which tells the tale of what befalls young Johannes Climacus as he decides to become a philosopher. At first he is in awe of the great thinkers, especially Hegel and Hegelians, and sets out to follow their philosophical example by exploring the maxim "Everything must be doubted." The more he examines this idea, however, the more he realizes how deluded his philosophical heroes are. Johannes Climacus demonstrates that philosophy can be humorous and entertaining as well as conceptually rigorous.

Born in 1813, Søren Kierkegaard was a Danish Christian thinker who was a forerunner of existentialism—he concerned himself with the utter isolation of the individual and the mysterious uncertainty of existence. His best known works include Fear and Trembling and Concluding Unscientific Postscript. Kierkegaard died in 1855.

Synopsis:

When Kierkegaard died at the age of 42, the papers found in his desk included "Johannes Climacus", probably written in the winter of 1842-43. The book is a novel and a work of philosophy, telling the tale of Johannes Climacus, who decides to become a philosopher.

Synopsis:

Rediscovered philosophical masterpiece.
