Industry Reviews

'... for the most part, the picture that is painted is of a remarkably postmodern thinker. Long before there was even a modernism to be post, Kierkegaard, it seems, recognised that the single author was dead, and that autonomous texts had taken their place. This is an excellent collection ...'. The Philosophers' Magazine 'While there has been a steady proliferation of edited volumes published on all aspects of Kierkegaard's oeuvre throughout this Renaissance period, Alastair Hannah's and Gordon Marino's The Cambridge Companion to Kierkegaard is especially impressive and noteworthy.' Bulletin of the Hegel Society of Great Britain
