Freedom and Society: Essays on Autonomy, Identity, and Political Freedom
Publisher: Mercer University Press
Product Code: P624
ISBN: 9780881467871
Availability: In stock
Price: $35.00
The idea for this volume arose from discussions at the February 2019 annual meeting of the Georgia Philosophical Society held at Mercer University on the theme of "Freedom and Society," and drafts of many of the chapters were first presented there. Including contributions from both early-career and well-known scholars, the chapters are tied together by questions about the nature of political freedom and autonomy in democratic societies and about the ways in which the enactment of democratic freedom depends on awareness of and engagement with freedom's underlying conditions.

Governing Oneself and Others: On Xenophon of Athens
Publisher: Mercer University Press
Product Code: P693
ISBN: 9780881469264
Availability: In stock
Price: $25.00
Xenophon (430-354 BCE) was a man of many modes: follower of Socrates, Athenian General, friend to Sparta, philosopher, political theorist, military historian, and writer. This collection of essays explores his writings across three genres, all of which he blends into one another: philosophical dialogue, political theory, and history. This collection is based on the 2022 A.V. Elliott Conference on Great Books and Ideas, sponsored by The Thomas C. and Ramon E. McDonald Center for America's Founding Principles at Mercer University.

Inconclusive Theologies: Sor Juana Ines de la Cruz, Kierkegaard, and Theological Discourse
By author: Lisa D. Powell
Publisher: Mercer University Press
Product Code: P475
ISBN: 9780881464634
Product Format: Paperback
Availability: In stock
Price: $30.00
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.

International Kierkegaard Commentary Volume 11: Stages on Life's Way
Series edited by: Robert L. Perkins
Product Code: P533
ISBN: 9780881465778
Availability: In stock
Price: $40.00
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.

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.

International Kierkegaard Commentary Volume 13: The Corsair Affair
Product Code: P483
ISBN: 9780881465167
Availability: In stock
Price: $40.00
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.
