i What if everything in the world were a misunderstanding what if laughter were really tears i br br i Either Or i is the earliest of the major works of S ren Kierkegaard one of the most startlingly original thinkers and writers of the nineteenth century and the first which he wrote under a pseudonym as he would for his greatest philosophical writings Adopting the viewpoints of two distinct figures with radically different beliefs the aesthetic young man of Part One called simply A and the ethical Judge Vilhelm of the second section Kierkegaard reflects upon the search for a meaningful existence contemplating subjects as diverse as Mozart drama boredom and in the famous Seducer s Diary the cynical seduction and ultimate rejection of a young beautiful woman A masterpiece of duality i Either Or i is an exploration of the conflict between the aesthetic and the ethical both meditating ironically and seductively upon Epicurean pleasures and eloquently expounding the noble virtues of a morally upstanding life br br This lightly abridged edition fully conveys the vigour and eloquence of the original Alastair Hannay s introduction explains the philosophical background to the work and places it in the context of its times, First published in Soren Kierkegaard s concise treatise identified long before Freud anxiety as a profound human condition portraying human existence largely as a constant struggle with our own spiritual identities Brilliantly synthesizing human insights with Christian dogma Kierkegaard presented The Concept of Anxiety as a landmark psychological deliberation suggesting that our only hope in overcoming anxiety was not through powder and pills but by embracing it with open arms While Kierkegaard s Danish prose is surprisingly rich previous translations the most recent in have marginalized the work with alternately florid or slavishly wooden language With a vibrancy never seen before in English Alastair Hannay the world s foremost Kierkegaard scholar re creates its natural rhythm eager that this overlooked classic will not only become as celebrated as Fear and Trembling The Sickness unto Death and Either Or but also be revivified as the seminal work of existentialism and moral psychology that it is, The Seducer s Diary records Johannes s discovery of a girl with the Shakespearean name Cordelia whom he sets out to control Intricately meticulously cunningly the seduction proceeds No detail is too small to escape Johannes br br She sits on the sofa by the tea table and I sit on a chair at her side This position has an intimate quality and at the same time a detaching dignity br br Less erotic than an intellectual depiction of seduction Diary of a Seducer shows the casuist Kierkegaard in what he characterized as the aesthetic mode, A companion piece to i The Concept of Anxiety i this work continues Soren Kierkegaard s radical and comprehensive analysis of human nature in a spectrum of possibilities of existence Present here is a remarkable combination of the insight of the poet and the contemplation of the philosopher br br In i The Sickness unto Death i Kierkegaard moves beyond anxiety on the mental emotional level to the spiritual level where in contact with the eternal anxiety becomes despair Both anxiety and despair reflect the misrelation that arises in the self when the elements of the synthesis the infinite and the finite do not come into proper relation to each other Despair is a deeper expression for anxiety and is a mark of the eternal which is intended to penetrate temporal existence
