Kierkegaard argued that Christianity is a lived religion, not a set of doctrines to be cognitively affirmed. This means theology’s proper focus is reflection on revelation within the God-human relationship, and human existence—always in process and shaped by different communities, relationships, and contexts—is significant to theological construction. As Christian knowledge is a relationship that cannot be communicated directly, theology is never concluded and cannot adequately function within totalizing systems. The writings of seventeenth-century Mexican nun, Sor Juana Inés de la Cruz, provide an exemplary direction for contemporary theologies mindful of this need for indirect communication. Her writings show a respect of others’ cognitive freedom and their differing contexts and perspectives. Utilizing the religious work of this woman from Mexico’s colonial past, Powell builds a theological case for the inclusion of literary genres in the theological discipline, a move that resists western philosophy’s dominance of form and opens the theological canon.

This collection is the first focused effort to bring modern research techniques to bear on Kierkegaard’s earliest polemical writings and literary efforts as gatheres in the first volume of Kierkegaard’s Writings under the title Early Polemical Writings. Some of these pieces—the speech at the student union, “Our Journalistic Literature,” and the rather strident, though silly, play, “The Battle between the Old and the New Soap-Cellars”—were not published during Kierkegaard’s lifetime.

With the title STAGES ON LIFE'S WAY, Kierkegaard gave a new phrase to many languages and offered through his delineation of aesthetic, ethical, and religious studies a tentative solution to a major conundrum of both modernist and postmodernist sensibility—the question of human identity. Though the title may suggest a Bildungsroman, the volume is more an arabesque, a collection of apparently separate works followed by a commentary and interpretation of the collection by the editor. The authors of this present collection of previously unpublished essays address, analyze, praise, criticize, and puzzle over the issues of STAGES ON LIFE'S WAY, its relation to the whole of Kierkegaard’s authorship, to Kierkegaard’s own life, and to the difficult task of making sense of our own selves in the various stages on life’s way.

Concluding Unscientific Postscript was published 28 February 1846, and this collection of essays, all written for the sesquicentennial, is offered in celebration of that singular event in the history of philosophy. Continuing the argument and analyses of a previous volume of IKC dedicated to Philosophical Fragments, this collection of essays focuses on the Postscript and undertakes to examine a number of Climacus’s arguments and views of classical and contemporary issues in philosophy.
