Kierkegaard is often viewed in the history of ideas solely within the academic traditions of philosophy and theology. The secondary literature generally ignores the fact that he also took an active role in the public debate about the significance of the modern age that was taking shape in the flourishing feuilleton literature during the period of his authorship. Through a series of sharply focussed studies, George Pattison contextualises Kierkegaard's religious thought in relation to the debates about religion, culture and society carried on in the newspapers and journals read by the whole educated stratum of Danish society. Pattison brings Kierkegaard into relation to not only high art and literature but also to the ephemera of his contemporary culture. This has important implications for our understanding of Kierkegaard's view of the nature of religious communication in modern society.

Review:

'A set of studies that are genuinely original and thought-provoking.' John Saxbee, Church Times

'Kierkegaard's purpose, in these feuilleton writings, is 'to help us to develop, to refine and to sharpen the way in which we read our cultural situation, the way in which to read the signs of the times'. But before we can benefit from his wisdom in that regard, we have first to learn how to read Kierkegaard; and this is exactly what Pattison helps us to do in this always erudite and often entertaining collection.' Church Times

'Pattison's scrupulously researched work uncovers a Kierkegaard in many ways unfamiliar, and along the way counters a few myths that have grown up around him.' The London Magazine

'No one who studies Kierkegaard should be able to ignore it, and it should have something to offer all who are seeking to think what it means to live in and beyond modernity.' Theology

'... has performed the long-neglected and inestimably valuable service of situating Kierkegaard within the homiletic, academic, literary, and feuilleton literature of Denmark ... a very full and satisfying discussion by this most astute, well-informed, and profound contemporary commentator on Kierkegaard.' The Heythrop Journal

Book Description Cambridge University Press August 2002, 2002. Paper Back. Condition: New. See the shy, closed-in philosopher hunched in his chair in the garden, shock of hair, pen in hand, ruminating and railing against inauthenticity in Christianity, culture, psychology and philosophy. File. Enter Pattison with this enlightening commentary on Kierkegaard's works in the public sphere, encompassing journal writing, art and review sections of newspapers, pamphlet production and book reviews, and an actively involved investigation of popular culture as well as high art appears. Living at the heart of the development of modern urbanity, Kierkegaard, along with the other principled thinkers of his time were faced with many dualities: the unsettling cities with their banal facades and window-dressing; problems of perception and the elusiveness of image; conflicts of nature and freedom; and the rapid flux in city streets crowding out moments of vision. Pattison clearly exhibits Kierkegaard as a powerful writer, religious commentator and critic of his place and time. The coupling of his aesthetic, religious and philosophical concerns with his great attention to detail resulted in a quality of judgment and search for value that is brilliantly instructive. Including many wonderful comparative studies with other artists (principally Manet and Dostoevsky) and thinkers, Pattison highlights yet another facet of Kierkegaard's inexhaustible thought: his insistence on maintaining the perspective of the extraordinary in the midst of a culture of leveling ordinariness.
