Kierkegaard approaches the problem first by suggesting the need of the eternal to enter the temporal. Now perfection is an activity that necessitates becoming. Open to the public.

Mar 27, Michael rated it really liked it I read hundreds of pages in Prof. Kierkegaard was entirely new to me, I think. This was a helpful introduction not only to Kierkegaard but to theology.
I browsed it but closely. Later I bought another edition of the work from Princeton University Press. I did not know Bretall but later I learned more about him and his work. This was a foundational work for me. It utterly fascinated me and set my reading even until today when I am I encountered this book when I was an engineering student and supposedly busy studying engineering.
It utterly fascinated me and set my reading even until today when I am an old man. I was a late teenager when I began. Other reviewers here have outlined the book and summarized Kierkegaard quite well. The anthology was perfect for the busy time I had doing engineering work-well symbolic logic as a background for algebraic mathematics.
I wanted to read it. The biographical details helped immensely. The quotations from the Journals were vital. I am not seeking a way to obtain the entire translation of the Journals. Kierkegaard helped me with the mendacity and banality of my church experiences and deepened my interest that I changed my major to religion.
