About this book

What is it to see the world, other people, and imagined situations as making personal moral demands of us? What is it to experience stories as speaking to us personally and directly? Kierkegaard's Mirrors explores Kierkegaard's answers to these questions, with a new phenomenological interpretation of Kierkegaardian 'interest'.

Reviews

'In a wonderful exhibit of archival retrieval, Patrick Stokes has written a fine account of an underappreciated theme, interesse, as it crops up here and there through the course of the Kierkegaardian oeuvre, its systematic implications heretofore largely unnoticed. This careful and creative tracking allows us to see anew the familiar philosophical motifs that become the bread and butter of so much Kierkegaard commentary subjectivity, selfhood, passion, love, imagination, and so forth. It is no small achievement to have opened the door to a reassessment or reconfiguration of this presumably familiar territory. But I found in working slowly through the successive chapters of this book that Stokes was accomplishing just that. He's found a powerful new prism through which to cast the beams of the enigmatic texts that concern us.' Kierkegaard Newsletter

'...Stokes's book is, without doubt, one of the, if not the, best account of Kierkegaard as a philosopher and moral psychologist ever written. Kierkegaard's Mirrors is essential reading for anyone interested in Kierkegaard, and the continuing debate about how his work and thought is to be understood.' Jamie Turnbull, British Journal for the History of Philosophy

'...Interesting and original...' - Meta: Research in Hermeneutics, Phenomenology, and Practical Philosophy
