Soren Kierkegaard
Birth: May 5, 1813
Copenhagen, Denmark
Death: Nov. 11, 1855
Copenhagen, Denmark

Danish Philosopher and Theologian. Known for being an uncompromising opponent of Hegelian Idealism. He attended the Faculty of Theology, University of Copenhagen, and several lessons of Friedrich Schelling at Berlin University. Equipped with fine irony and remarkable ability dialectics, he harshly criticized the ideas of all his contemporaries, including Schopenhauer, Schelling and Schleiermacher. The fundamental question is "how to interpret Christianity?". According to him, every man must face life in a subjective way, not collective. The existence, therefore, is a choice of the individual who accepts the consequences of this choice. These fundamental concepts of his thought are an integral part of the Irrationalism. According to some historians of philosophy, he was the precursor to Existentialism, but the issue remains controversial because of significant differences with this philosophical movement. He has published nearly 30 works, including "Om Begrebet Ironi med til stadigt Hensym Socrates", "Aut aut", "og Frygt Baeven", "IndÝvelse the Christendom. (bio by: Lucy Caldarelli)
