Acta Kierkegaardiana VII:
Kierkegaard and Classical Greek Thought
Throughout his life Kierkegaard draws inspiration from classical Greek thinkers. Over and over he refers to Plato, Aristotle, and other Greek philosophers, as well as to Greek rhetoricians, dramatists, poets, and historians. For Kierkegaard “the Greeks” (and, above all, his favorite philosopher, Socrates) represent the ideal of a life combining individual reflection with ethical action—an ideal he finds all too often ignored within nineteenth-century Copenhagen. The purpose of the present volume, therefore, is to explore this rich source of Kierkegaard’s thought, in order both to understand his arguments in their historical context and to apply them today.
Manuscripts for this volume should be submitted by August 15, 2014, and should follow the “Guidelines for Submission”. The editors for the volume will be Andrew Burgess and William McDonald.
