Kierkegaard and political theory: religion, aesthetics, politics and the intervention of the single individual

(2014)

Abstract
The Danish philosopher Søren Kierkegaard’s radical protestant philosophy of the individual – in which a person’s leap of faith is favoured over general ethics – has become a model for many contemporary political theorists. Thinkers such as Slavoj Žižek and Alain Badiou have drawn on its revolutionary spirit to position truth above the constraints of political systems. In the volume, contributors from a wide range of disciplines examine just how crucial Kierkegaard’s anti-institutional thinking has been to such efforts and to modernity as a whole.
