Kierkegaard and Freedom by James Giles

Book Description

This is a critical exploration of the ideas of Kierkegaard on the various problems surrounding the issue of human freedom. Kierkegaard's views here have been largely ignored by modern English speaking philosophers. Through the combined efforts of eleven philosophers and Kierkegaard scholars this book attempts both to fill this gap by giving a clear presentation of Kierkegaard's position on such things as radical choice, autonomy, necessity, fate, and self-deception, all the while critically assessing his contributions to one of philosophy's most perplexing problems.

Kierkegaard and Japanese Thought by James Giles Kierkegaard and Japanese Thought, Hardback (April 2008)

Kierkegaard knew nothing of Japanese philosophy yet the links between his own ideas and Japanese philosophers are remarkable. The book examines Kierkegaard in terms of Shinto, Pure Land Buddhism, Zen Buddhism, the Samurai, the famous Kyoto school of Japanese philosophers, and in terms of pivotal Japanese thinkers who were influenced by Kierkegaard.
