Despite that they didn’t know each other, the writing styles of American writer Herman Melville (1819–1891) and Danish writer Søren Kierkegaard (1813–1855) complement each other, especially their humor, irony, penchants for paradox, and passions for imagery and poetics. In addition, their works similarly address issues of the world and time. Esthetic, ethical, social, philosophical, and theological paths on which they walk reveal similar footprints.

Monographs on philosophers multiply daily but on occasion we must ask the question of why a particular philosopher matters. When Mercer University Press opened its doors more than thirty years ago, it committed itself to religious studies in general, and to several thinkers. One of those was Søren Kierkegaard. Now, as the Press concludes a major publishing event with the completion of the International Kierkegaard Commentary, it seeks to honor the only series editor it has known: Robert Perkins.

Kierkegaard wrote four reflections on his literary production: On My Work as an Author, The Point of View for My Work as an Author, “The Single Individual,” and Armed Neutrality, but he published only the first. The essays in this volume of International Kierkegaard Commentary examine these writings not just as a public “report to history” but also as a revelation of Kierkegaard’s deepest understanding of himself as an author.

Lessons from Aquinas: A Resolution of the Problem of Faith and Reason

Publisher: Mercer University Press
Product Code: H829
ISBN: 9780881462531
Product Format: Hardback
Availability: In stock
Price: $45.00
Thomas Aquinas has long been understood to have reconciled faith and reason. Typically, he is understood as having provided justification for faith by means of proof. In this book, Rosental argues that Aquinas's account of faith is not simply an account of justified belief, at least as it is typically considered in contemporary philosophy. This book is an erudite and accessible reading of this most fundamental issue in Thomistic studies.

Product Format: Hardback
Availability: In stock
Price: $50.00
Building on his earlier work, Ronald Green presents Kant as a major inspiration of Kierkegaard's authorship. Green argues that Kant's ethics provided the rigor on which Kierkegaard drew in developing his concept of sin. He maintains that the chief difference between Kant and Kierkegaard has to do with whether we need a historical savior to restore our broken moral wills.

Mirror’s Fathom is the story of Tycho Wilhelm Lund—anarchist, pirate, and thief of a legendary mirror. Tycho is also a great-nephew of the Danish philosopher Søren Kierkegaard and is, when the novel begins, a mild-mannered antiques dealer who is asked to assess the value of some furniture at the home of Regine Schlegel, Kierkegaard’s famously jilted former love. Upon his arrival, Tycho—who has no interest in philosophy—finds himself at a meeting of the Kierkegaard Circle, a group faithfully reading aloud Kierkegaard’s works. There he meets, and falls for, Countess Juliana Sophie, herself a passionate follower of Kierkegaard’s thinking and self-appointed mistress of the “School for Selves.”
