About This Item

Kjøbenhavn: C. A. Reitzel, 1845. First Edition. Hardcover. very good+. Kierkegaard's Update to Either/OrKIERKEGAARD, Soren. Stadier paa Livets Vei. af Hilarius Bogbinder (Stages on Life's Way), C. A. Reitzel, Kjøbenhavn, 1845. Blank leaf + TP + [III] = Indhold + [V]-VIII = Lectori benevolo + half-title + [3]-383 + 1 blank leaf, Octavo. First Edition (Himmelstrup 78)."Similar in structure and content to, and something of an update of, Either/Or and undoubtedly among Kierkegaard's most brilliant literary achievements. Despite its appearance under the pseudonym Hilarious Bookbinder and with the subtitle Studies by Sundry Persons, this 'aesthetic' work is perhaps Kierkegaards's clearest and most self-disclosing presentation of the aesthetic, ethical and religious stages of life." (Wronoski, p. 18)"In his religious works, notably 'Stages on Life's Way', Kierkegaard again sees the progress of religion as a pattern of decisions and conflicts, and the history of Christianity mainly as a process of deterioration from the radical categories of the New Testament. To him there was only God, infinitely great, and the individual man, infinitely small, and the demands which each made of the other were irreconcilable. To the comfortable religiosity of the nineteenth century this was intolerable, and Kierkegaard was bitterly attacked as well as misunderstood." (PMM, p. 191)CONDITION: Very good+ in contemporary 3 4 black leather with matching black boards. The spine with four raised bands and gilt ornaments and lettering. Spine and hinges a bit worn, especially along top of spine. Closed tear to pp 165-66. Overall, a very nice copy.
