In Philosophical Fragments the pseudonymous writer Johannes Climacus explored the query: what's required as a way to transcend Socratic recollection of everlasting rules already possessed through the learner? Written as an afterword to this paintings, Concluding Unscientific Postscript is on one point a philosophical jest, but on one other it's Climacus's characterization of the subjective thinker's relation to the reality of Christianity. immediately ironic, funny, and polemical, this paintings takes at the "unscientific" type of a mimical-pathetical-dialectical compilation of principles. while the circulation within the past pseudonymous writings is clear of the classy, the move in Postscript is clear of speculative inspiration. Kierkegaard meant Postscript to be his concluding paintings as an writer. the next "second authorship" after The Corsair Affair made Postscript the turning aspect within the complete authorship. half one of many textual content quantity examines the reality of Christianity as an aim factor, half the subjective factor of what's concerned for the person in turning into a Christian, and the amount ends with an addendum during which Kierkegaard recognizes and explains his relation to the pseudonymous authors and their writings. the second one quantity includes the scholarly gear, together with a key to references and chosen entries from Kierkegaard's journals and papers.
