Hampson expounds seven major Kierkegaard texts, setting them in their philosophical, theological and historical context, drawing attention in particular to the Lutheran setting of Kierkegaard's work that is frequently overlooked. Taking the works sequentially, she provides a time line through Kierkegaard's work and life, presenting an engaging portrait of the thinker. She then engages in a lively debate with Kierkegaard, interfacing his thought with that of othersof his time and posing vital questions from a twenty-first century perspective, making evident Kierkegaard's considerable significance for the present. An original and far-ranging book, it will prove invaluable to students, of considerable interest to the community of Kierkegaard scholars for thepertinence of the issues it raises, and provide an enlightening and accessible cross-disciplinary study for a wider intellectual readership.
