Publisher Comments:

Ostensibly, A Literary Review is a straightforward commentary by Søren Kierkegaard on the work of a contemporary novelist. On deeper levels, however, it becomes the existential philosopher's far-reaching critique of his society and age, and its apocalyptic final sections inspired the central ideas in Martin Heiddeger's influential work Being and Time. Embraced by many readers as prophetic, A Literary Review and its concepts remain relevant to our current debates on identity, addiction, and social conformity.

Synopsis:

Soren Kierkegaard (1813-1855) wrote on a wide variety of themes and is remembered for his philosophy which was influential in the development of 20th-century existentialism. He used this review as a critique of his society and age, while ostensibly commenting on the work of a contemporary novelist.
