Prospect Book Club – Clare Carlisle
Søren Kierkegaard is one of the most passionate of philosophers. He analysed love and suffering, courage and anxiety, religious longing and defiance. His restless creativity was spurred on by his own failures: his relationship with the young woman whom he promised to marry, then left to devote himself to writing, haunted him throughout his life. When he collapsed exhausted at the age of 42, he was still pursuing the question of existence: how to be a human being in this world? Clare Carlisle has spent her life studying the Danish philosopher, and her engaging and original biography conveys vividly what it was like to be this Socrates of Christendom.
