Kierkegaard presents a form of divine command theory of moral obligation similar to accounts developed by Robert Adams and Philip Quinn. The account understands the relation humans have with a loving God as making possible the greatest human good, and as creating those unique obligations we designate as moral.

God’s commands should be obeyed, not because of fear of divine punishment, but out. The philosophy of Søren Kierkegaard has been a major influence in the development of 20th-century philosophy, especially existentialism and postmodernism.

Søren Kierkegaard was a 19th-century Danish philosopher who has been labeled by many as the "Father of Existentialism", although there are some in the field who express doubt in labeling him an existentialist to begin with.

For to love God is to love oneself in truth; to help another human being to love God is to love another man; to be helped by another human being to love God is to be loved (p. f.).

Oxford: Oxford University Press,x and pages, $ Kierkegaard wrote the book under a series of false names, or pseudonyms. The book has two parts: the first deals with the aesthetic, a word that Kierkegaard uses to denote personal, sensory experiences.

The second part of Either/Or deals with ethics. In this part Kierkegaard discusses the merits of a social and morally proper life. Moreover, Kierkegaards covering in the deliberation Love covers a multitude of sins in Works of Love of covering suggests innovative meanings for yin that are compatible with Confucian philosophy.

As with most of Kierkegaard's writing Either/Or is a dense text. I was introduced to Kierkegaard through The Sickness Unto Death, and after that I read Works of Love. While I do think The Sickness Unto Death is one of Kierkegaard's greatest works, I wouldn't recommend it for someone.

Kierkegaard's first major book was this dissertation, published in This, along with many of his other books, was in conflict with Hegelianism, the dominant German philosophy of the time.

Søren Aabye Kierkegaard ( - ) was a 19th Century Danish philosopher and theologian. Although relatively isolated during his life, he became extremely influential once his works were translated into German after his death.

For over a century, the Danish thinker Søren Kierkegaard (–55) has been at the center of a number of important discussions, concerning not only philosophy and theology but also, more recently, fields such as social thought.

Few philosophers have devoted such sustained, almost obsessive attention to the topic of death as Søren Kierkegaard. Kierkegaard and Death brings together new work on Kierkegaard's multifaceted discussions of death and provides a thorough guide to the development, in various texts and contexts, of Kierkegaard's ideas concerning death.
