    Hello,

    Your Kierkegaard project looks impressive. I clicked on the reviews and found quite a few broken links, .e.g. Fear and Trembling, Philosophical Fragments, etc.

  2. Thanks for the heads up. I tried using the links for the categories on the right side bar but that apparently does not work. I will try and clean that up.

  3. Nemo says:

    The links should work. However, for your first 9 links, you need to prepend a “0” to your links in your post to match the ones on the side bar.

    e.g.
    “8-philosophical-fragments”
    to
    “08-philosophical-fragments”

    Dostoevsky was at a luncheon or some such, and a woman guest told the great author that she had not read Dickens. He was overjoyed for the woman, ‘the happiest person in the world is among us!’ and one can imagine feeling a little sad for himself, as she had ‘he happiness to look foreword to, had coming the rich experience of meeting Dickens for the first time, while Dostoevsky had read all the novels.

    I had similar mixed feelings stumbling upon your website. I felt a tinge of jealousy on learning of your project to read all of SK. Have a lot of fun! Having read the bulk of his works I can assure you that you will come out different after such a brush with genius. Crazed and flawed genius – that is the only kind.

    So I’m looking at doing a similar project on Kierkegaard with some friends. We’re trying to find the right pace to read through SK, balancing school and work alongside. Did you have a reading schedule while reading through?

    • I read it all in a year while working full time. I did not break up the reading schedule throughout the year. I did end up skimming some of the Upbuilding Discourses as I found them a bit repetitive after a while. I can see it being difficult to do with this others in the space of a year b/c you have to all keep to a similar rhythm but you also probably don’t need to read ALL his works to get the breadth of his thought. All the best!

        Many thanks. We’re planning on reading 13 or so of his major works in about a year in a half. So a much slower pace than you did! The goal is to keep going beyond that, but hopefully, as you say, we’ll at least have a better idea of what’s happening in SK’s thought. FWIW, we have a group of six people who for the most part plan on blogging through the reading at http://infiniteviolence.wordpress.com/ in case you ever want to stop by. Starting in August with Sickness Unto Death. Best, Tyler.

      • Fantastic. All the best.
