In late 1845 Soren Kierkegaard began a literary duel with the satiric Danish review The Corsair that had momentous effects on his life and work. Three of the articles included in this commentary address Kierkegaard’s relation to the press. One is an expository article written within the terms of Kierkegaard’s own views, while two others place the affair in the context of a Marxist critique of modern media. Two papers address the issue of the comic. One essay attempts to sort through the interpersonal relationships. Finally, two articles treat matters not related to the Corsair Affair but to other newspaper articles published in the volume.

In late 1845 Søren Kierkegaard began a literary duel with the satiric Danish review The Corsair that had momentous effects on his life and work. The affair prompted Kierkegaard to ponder and write about the use and abuse of the press. His reflections on this subject led him to examine topics that included communication, the public, the public morale, and the issues of social legitimacy, the relation of the individual to society and, surprisingly enough, the nature of the comic. Standard Kierkegaard biographies and interpretations generally perceive the affair as decisive in leading Kierkegaard to give up his idea of becoming a country pastor and in driving him to continue his prodigious literary output. The Corsair Affair, is not like any other volume previously published or planned in the series. It contains only a few pages of Kierkegaard's own published writings, while his unpublished journals constitute most of the volume. The second-largest section reprints the cartoons and articles about Kierkegaard published in The Corsair and includes excerpts from the autobiography of Meir Goldschmidt, editor of The Corsair. Perkins states in his introduction that this commentary "is the first concerted effort by scholars of many persuasions, using different methods, to address this series of events and the concepts that were developed in and through them. Here we make a fresh new start to work our way through a new set of concepts derived from these documents and our cogitations on them. In the process, we also enrich our treatment of concepts that have long been prominent in Kierkegaard research."

International Kierkegaard Commentary: Two Ages is the first major work on Soren Kierkegaard’s Two Ages in any language, based upon the first complete English translation. This commentary shows not only how Kierkegaard broke new ground in the philosophy of society, but also how his ideas have, to some extent, influenced subsequent social philosophy, and how his concepts compare with and contrast to those of others such as Heidegger, Nietzsche, Scheler, and Weber.

Christian Discouses contains some of Kierkegaard’s most constructive religious and social thought, founded on his deepening appreciation of the ambiguity of our common human situation before a loving yet commanding God. Christian Discourses is a collection of provocative arguments and insights which should redefine the approach to Kierkegaard’s “attack on Christendom” and provoke a useful debate about the significance of his “second literature.”
