"Merold Westphal is a knowing interpreter who has penetrated Kierkegaard's mind and is faithful to Kierkegaard's own interest...In a helpful and stimulating way, he also brings to his interpretation of Kierkegaard an intimate knowledge of three other thinkers whose lives overlapped with Kierkegaard's: Hegel, Marx, and Nietzsche." - Pacific Theological Review. "Kierkegaard's Critique of Reason and Society is a pivotal event in the history of Kierkegaardian interpretation...Westphal's reading of Kierkegaard contains a polemic against two prevalent misreadings. Kierkegaard is often seen as an irrationalist, and he is often seen as an individualist. Westphal argues powerfully that both labels, as usually understood, are completely misleading." - Christian Scholar's Review.

MEDIA REVIEWS

"Westphal shows us that Kierkegaard's philosophy makes an important contribution to what we now call the 'critique of ideology,' embracing both political and sociological concerns, and squarely based upon as affirmation of human reason-a reason that is fully aware of its own nature, neither shirking its responsibilities nor overstepping its capacities. For those who would like to get beyond the myth of Kierkegaard as an apostle of the 'solitary self,' Kierkegaard's Critique of Reason and Society is just the book to read."

-Stephen N. Dunning, University of Pennsylvania


"I recommend the book highly, both to Kierkegaard specialists and to others interested in rationality, human nature, and society."

"Merold Westphal is a knowing interpreter who has penetrated Kierkegaard's mind and is faithful to Kierkegaard's own interest. . . . In a helpful and stimulating way, he also brings to his interpretation of Kierkegaard an intimate knowledge of three other thinkers whose lives overlapped with Kierkegaard's: Hegel, Marx, and Nietzsche."

-Pacific Theological Review


"Kierkegaard's Critique of Reason and Society is a pivotal event in the history of Kierkegaardian interpretation. . . . Westphal's reading of Kierkegaard contains a polemic against two prevalent misreadings. Kierkegaard is often seen as an irrationalist, and he is often seen as an individualist.
