Tracing a course via Kierkegaard's writings, this booklet brings the reader into shut touch with the texts and reasons of this amazing 19th-century Danish author and philosopher. Kierkegaard writes in a couple of voices and registers: as a pointy observer and critic of Danish tradition, or as an ethical psychologist, and as a author involved to rouse the non secular lifestyle of Socrates, Abraham, or a Christian exemplar. In constructing those issues, Mooney sketches Kierkegaard's Socratic vocation, provides a detailed interpreting of a number of valuable texts, and lines "The moral elegant" as a recurrent subject. He unfolds an affirmative dating among philosophy and theology and the possibilities for a religiousness that defies dogmatic creeds, secular chauvinisms, and restrictive philosophies

But don’t we need more reason for crediting this story than the mere fact that we’re not prohibited from considering it? Perhaps we listen, and allow the tale to steal our hearts – because we’ve come to love and trust Socrates, because we’re gullible, because we just don’t feel compelled to verify his sources. 7 An easygoing Socrates cagily seduces us – through conﬁding his own seduction (sharing a conﬁdence breeds intimacy). He’s not taken in by Alcibiades, but by this alluring tale of love and beauty, or by the mysterious woman who conveyed it.

(Hannay, Papers, 47, VIII, 1, A 11), and capable of writing both tragedy and comedy in answer to Socrates’ question at the end of the Symposium (14 July, 37, II, A 132).
Beyond his exposé of untruth, Socrates modeled simple truths – that beauty was an inward radiance behind a rough exterior, that death was nothing to fear, that critique could be liberating as well as frustrating, that one should follow the path of justice. ” But he’s memorable also for a way of life delivered by Plato’s evocation of who he is. Socrates was irresistible. ”25 He had the sort of intimate, visceral knowledge of love that he, as one smitten, could not fail to know, and that others, if they were the least bit attentive, could not fail to notice, too.
