Soren Kierkegaard Quotes

Soren Kierkegaard was an early 19th-century Danish poet, social critic, theologian, philosopher, and religious author. He is widely considered as the first existentialist philosopher.  He often contained critical texts regarding religion, psychology, ethics, Christendom, morality, and organized religion.

He often displayed a fondness for parables, irony, and metaphor in his writings. Most of his philosophical works deal with a life of solitude, the priority of human reality over abstract thinking, and the importance of personal commitment and choice.

He was also against literary critics who often compared everyone’s works with the idealist philosophers and intellectuals of his time. His theological works often explore the differences between the personal relationships between man and God.

His psychological works touched the feelings and emotions of individuals when faced with critical life choices. Many of his early works were written under various pseudonyms to represent multiple viewpoints on a single topic. His views were often relayed in complex dialogues and acute observations.
