About the Author

Alastair Hannay is Professor Emeritus of Philosophy at the University of Oslo. He has translated several of Kierkegaard's works, and is also the editor of the journal Inquiry. His publications include Mental Images: A Defence (1971), Kierkegaard (1982), HumanConsciousness (1990) and Kierkegaard: A Biography (2001). He is the editor of the Cambridge Companion to Kierkegaard (1997).


'Alastair Hannay has made an immense contribution to Kierkegaard scholarship. In this volume he draws on his wide knowledge of Kierkegaard's life, publications, and journal entries to provide a sharp and sustained focus on the philosophical content of Kierkegaard work. The result is a lively sense of the range and relevance of the many-faceted thought of this absolutely essential figure.' - Hubert Dreyfus, University of California at Berkeley

'Kierkegaard's writings are difficult territory, and Alastair Hannay is the most reliable of guides.' - Jonathan Ree, editor of Kierkegaard: a Critical Reader

'Alastair Hannay is certainly a reliable guide. Scholarly, without being weighed down by his learning, his essays cover a wide range of topics and are written in a clear and accessible style.'
