Søren Kierkegaard’s two heroes were Socrates and Jesus Christ. When explaining what he took his purpose as a philosopher to be, Kierkegaard said, “My task is a Socratic task—to rectify the concept of what it means to be a Christian.” 1 This nineteenth-century Danish philosopher (–) is perhaps best known as the father of existentialism, a school of.

Kierkegaard's Critique of Hegel’s Philosophy - short summary At the core of Kierkegaard 's work is the rejection of systematized, logical thought as an adequate guide to life and meaning.
