Editorial Reviews

Kierkegaard’s Critique of Reason and Society is a pivotal event in the history of Kierkegaardian interpretation. . . . Westphal’s reading of Kierkegaard contains a polemic against two prevalent misreadings. Kierkegaard is often seen as an irrationalist, and he is often seen as an individualist. Westphal argues powerfully that both labels, as usually understood, are completely misleading.”
