The Point of View
Robert L. Perkins
Mercer University Press, 2010 - Philosophy - 466 pages
Kierkegaard wrote four reflections on his literary production: On My Work as an Author, The Point of View for My Work as an Author, "The Single Individual," and Armed Neutrality, but he published only the first. The essays in this volume of International Kierkegaard Commentary examine these writings not just as a public "report to history" but also as a revelation of Kierkegaard's deepest understanding of himself as an author.
This volume of the International Kierkegaard Commentary is offered to our readers, whom we invite to learn what they can here and then to become our teachers by better research and clearer thinking.
