In the first comprehensive commentary on Soren Kierkegaard’s Concluding Unscientific Postscript the eminent Kierkegaard specialist Niels Thulstrup clarifies the book’s intricate allusions to the thought and literature of its own and past ages. A central work both in Kierkegaard’s authorship and in the history of philosophy, the Postscript breaks completely with a long tradition of religious and philosophical thought. In his introduction and commentary, presented here in translation from the Danish, Professor Thulstrup explains this break and the unique relationship of the work to Kierkegaard’s other books.
