DCC Søren Kierkegaard and the Challenge of Existence
Søren Kierkegaard and the Challenge of Existence is a course in English for all International Students offered each semester. Søren Kierkegaard is a fascinating and famous Danish philosopher/writer – in fact, the only Danish thinker of undisputed international rank and legend. Apart from being considered the “father of existentialism”, his unorthodox ideas are discussed in and can be connected to virtually every subject area within the humanities.
The course will introduce students to Kierkegaard, his philosophy and his basic concepts, and guide students through a reading of Kierkegaard’s own texts.
