Father of existentialism or the Eeyore of philosophy?

Known as the first modern theologian, Søren Kierkegaard was a prolific writer of the Danish ‘golden age’. A philosopher, poet and social critic, his key concepts of angst, despair, and the importance of the individual, influenced many 20th-century philosophers and literature throughout Europe.

Dave Robinson and Oscar Zarate’s brilliant graphic guide explains what Kierkegaard means by ‘anti-philosophy’, and tells an illuminating story of the strange life and ideas of a man tortured by his attempts to change the very priorities of Western thought.



Dave Robinson has taught philosophy for many years and is the author of numerous Introducing titles. Oscar Zarate is one of the UK’s leading graphic artists. He has illustrated numerous Introducing titles. His graphic novel A Small Killing won the Will Eisner Prize.
