Dieses eBook: "Die Lilien auf dem Felde (Drei Beichtreden) - Vollständige deutsche Ausgabe" ist mit einem detaillierten und dynamischen Inhaltsverzeichnis versehen und wurde sorgfältig korrekturgelesen. Søren Kierkegaard (1813-1855) war ein dänischer Philosoph, Essayist, Theologe und religiöser Schriftsteller. In seinen meist unter Pseudonymen veröffentlichten Schriften zeigte er sich als engagierter Verfechter der Idee des Christentums gegen die Realität der Christenheit. Etwa ein Drittel seines gedruckten Werkes besteht ferner aus unter eigenem Namen veröffentlichten Predigten und religiösen Reden. Auch wird Kierkegaard vielfach als Wegbereiter der Existenzphilosophie oder gar als deren erster Vertreter aufgefasst. Aus dem Buch: “Du sagst vielleicht mit dem Dichter: o daß ich ein Vogel wäre, wie der freie Vogel, der in lustiger Fahrt weit weit fortfliegt, dem Himmel so nahe, zu fernen fernen Fluren – während mich Sorgen und Widerwärtigkeiten und Leiden täglich merken lassen, wie ich an die Stelle gebunden und genagelt bin. O daß ich ein Vogel wäre, frei wie der Vogel, frei von allen Rücksichten wie der kleine Singvogel, der demütig singt, ob auch Niemand auf ihn hört, oder der stolz singt, ob auch Niemand auf ihn hört! Ach, während ich keinen Augenblick und Nichts für mich selbst habe, sondern tausend Rücksichten nehmen muß. O daß ich eine Blume wäre, wie die Blume auf dem Felde, glücklich in mich selbst versunken und weiter nichts – ach, während ich auch in meinem Herzen diesen Zwiespalt des Menschenherzens fühle und weder in Selbstliebe mit Allem brechen, noch auch liebevoll Alles opfern kann!”

Soren Kierkegaard
Collected here in one volume are three of Søren Kierkegaard's most important works: Fear and Trembling, Purity of Heart Is to Will One Thing, and Sickness Unto Death. Fear and Trembling: In our time nobody is content to stop with faith but wants to go further. It would perhaps be rash to ask where these people are going, but it is surely a sign of breeding and culture for me to assume that everybody has faith, for otherwise it would be queer for them to be . . . going further. In those old days it was different, then faith was a task for a whole lifetime, because it was assumed that dexterity in faith is not acquired in a few days or weeks. When the tried oldster drew near to his last hour, having fought the good fight and kept the faith, his heart was still young enough not to have forgotten that fear and trembling which chastened the youth, which the man indeed held in check, but which no man quite outgrows. . . except as he might succeed at the earliest opportunity in going further. Where these revered figures arrived, that is the point where everybody in our day begins to go further. Purity of Heart Is to Will One Thing: Father in heaven! What is a man without Thee! What is all that he knows, vast accumulation though it be, but a chipped fragment if he does not know Thee! What is all his striving, could it even encompass a world, but a half-finished work if he does not know Thee: Thee the One, who art one thing and who art all! Sickness Unto Death: Man is spirit. But what is spirit? Spirit is the self. But what is the self? The self is a relation which relates itself to its own self, or it is that in the relation [which accounts for it] that the relation relates itself to its own self; the self is not the relation but [consists in the fact] that the relation relates itself to its own self. Man is a synthesis of the infinite and the finite, of the temporal and the eternal, of freedom and necessity, in short it is a synthesis.
Søren Kierkegaard
"Why I so much prefer autumn to spring is that in the autumn one looks at heaven--in the spring at the earth."--Søren Kierkegaard

The father of existentialism, Søren Kierkegaard (1813-1855) was a philosopher who could write like an angel. With only a sentence or two, he could plumb the depths of the human spirit. In this collection of some 800 quotations, the reader will find dazzling bon mots next to words of life-changing power. Drawing from the authoritative Princeton editions of Kierkegaard's writings, this book presents a broad selection of his wit and wisdom, as well as a stimulating introduction to his life and work.

Organized by topic, this volume covers notable Kierkegaardian concerns such as anxiety, despair, existence, irony, and the absurd, but also erotic love, the press, busyness, and the comic. Here readers will encounter both well-known quotations ("Life must be understood backward. But then one forgets the other principle, that it must be lived forward") and obscure ones ("Beware false prophets who come to you in wolves' clothing but inwardly are sheep--i.e., the phrasemongers"). Those who spend time in these pages will discover the writer who said, "my grief is my castle," but who also taught that "the best defense against hypocrisy is love."

Illuminating and delightful, this engaging book also provides a substantial portrait of one of the most influential of modern thinkers.

Gathers some 800 quotations Drawn from the authoritative Princeton editions of Kierkegaard's writings Includes an introduction, a brief account and timeline of Kierkegaard's life, a guide to further reading, and an index
