Soren Kierkegaard, Philosopher

"Often, the details of a philosopher's life are irrelevant to his philosophy. Who cares how many brothers and sisters Aristotle had? It does not affect his concept of Categories. With Kierkegaard, however, the life does matter to the student of the philosophy."  Extract taken from an essay written by James E. Kiefer at the following website:
