Description - Kierkegaard and Freedom by James Giles

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.
