About the Author

Clare Carlisle was Leverhulme Research Fellow at the University of Leeds, UK, and now teaches Philosophy at the University of Liverpool, UK. She is the author of Kierkegaard's Philosophy of Becoming (SUNY Press, 2005).


'Carlisle...does a fine job in helping readers see why Kierkegaard held his views by providing an interesting biography and arguing that Kierkegaard's philosophy is bound up with his life.. Many interesting facts are provided about the academic, philosophical and theological setting in which Kierkegaard developed his most important works.' Alex Orenstein, TLS
"In this fairly short, very clear, wide-ranging and quite lively introduction to the philosophically religious thought of Soren Kierkegaard, Claire Carlisle has done a service of great value to undergraduate students and also non-specialists interested in the formidable and vast collection of texts written though, importantly, not all signed, by Soren Kierkegaard ... the presentation of this book is happily very understandable and consistently illuminating."--Sanford Lakoff
"This book is clearly written, and provides the student with a rounded introduction to the multifaceted nature of Kierkegaard's thought in its philosophical, theological, and psychological aspects. It will, I should think, count along with C. Stephen Evans' Kierkegaard's Fragments and Postscript and John Lippitt's Routledge Philosophy Guidebook to Kierkegaard and Fear and Trembling all texts that come highly recommended on the Kierkegaard reading list." -Jamie Turnbull, Philosophy in Review
