Kierkegaard's brilliance lies in his ability to take such deeply personal experiences--love, lust, sorrow--and comment universally in a way that is at least unmatched in philosophy and probably in all of literature. He understood life in a way that seems obvious but is in fact merely fundamental to us all. The book is a collection of papers and texts on a variety of subjects that at first seem disconnected but in the end all tie perfectly together with the truly brilliant "seducer's diary". Philosophy is a literary discipline that generally provokes either intimidation or a feeling of pointlessness. This book will not overwhelm you in complex language or terminology, rather it will leave you invigorated with fresh ideas and new questions about everything around.
