About the Authors
  • Jon Stewart's groundbreaking study is a major re-evaluation of the complex relationship between the philosophies of Kierkegaard and Hegel. Although the standard view on the subject is that Kierkegaard defined himself as explicitly anti-Hegelian (and viewed Hegel's philosophy with disdain), Jon Stewart demonstrates that Kierkegaard's criticism was not directed specifically to Hegel, but actually to some contemporary Danish Hegelians.

    • A study that overturns the traditional view of the relations between the philosophies of Kierkegaard and Hegel
    • Appeal beyond philosophy to scholars in religious studies and history of ideas

    "...a major achievement in contemporary Kierkegaard scholarship...As Stewart points out, the relationship between Kierkegaard and Hegel has been a common topic of comment in general histories of nineteenth-century thought, and the book will therefore be of interest beyond the world of those taking or conducting courses in Kierkegaard's thought." George Pattison, King's College, Cambridge
