    Princeton University Press 2013; US$ 12.95 US$ 11.78

    "In the vast literature of love, The Seducer's Diary is an intricate curiosity--a feverishly intellectual attempt to reconstruct an erotic failure as a pedagogic success, a wound masked as a boast," observes John Updike in his foreword to Søren Kierkegaard's narrative. This work, a chapter from Kierkegaard's first major volume, Either/Or , springs... more...

    A companion piece to The Concept of Anxiety , this work continues Søren Kierkegaard's radical and comprehensive analysis of human nature in a spectrum of possibilities of existence.
