‘200 years of Kierkegaard, philosopher of freedom’

http://www.presseurop.eu/files/130501ga.jpgAcross the world, celebrations have been planned to mark the 200th anniversary of the birth of Danish thinker Søren Kierkegaard (1813-1855) on May 5.

De Groene Amsterdammer reports that his focus on the existence of the individual, as well as awareness of oneself and one’s future have led to a significant resurgence of interest in the work of the “Socrates of Copenhagen”.

His essays on “the possibility of achieving authenticity through freedom have ensured that Kierkegaard is still very relevant [...] even though the mission that he confers on the individual is fundamentally different to the encouraging advice found in today’s self-help manuals.”
