Soren Kierkegaard

Soren  Kierkegaard

Sören Aabye Kierkegaard (May 5, 1813 – November 11, 1855) was a famous Danish philosopher and theologian of the nineteenth century. By developing a philosophy of suffering and anguish, he is regarded as the father of Existentialism, a topic that Martin Heidegger and other twentieth-century philosophers have returned to. Hegelianism of his time, as well as what he referred to as the Iglesia Danesa's empty formalities, was a source of dissent for him. A large part of his work is concerned with religious issues, such as the nature of faith, the institution of the Christian Church, Christian ethics, and the emotions and feelings that people feel when confronted with life's choices. In the first phase, he wrote under several pseudonyms, presenting their points of view through a complex dialogue.

He got into the habit of assigning the task of deducing the meaning of his writings to the reader since, in his words, the task should be difficult, for only difficulty inspires nobles of the heart. He has been labeled as an existentialist, neoorthodox, posmodernist, humanist, and individualist, among other things. Kierkegaard is regarded as a significant and influential figure in contemporary thought, transcending the boundaries of philosophy, theology, psychology, and literature.
