Join us for Grace Cathedral’s flagship conversation program online with University of Oxford professor and one of the editors of the eleven volumes of Kierkegaard’s Journals and Notebooks.
In this era of fake news, what can we learn from Kierkegaard’s “truth as subjectivity”? Does 19th century philosophy have something to teach us? Join us to hear from Joel Rasmussen, Associate Professor at the University of Oxford, in conversation with Dean Malcolm Clemens Young about why the writings of Søren Kierkegaard matter today. Rasmussen’s studies focus on the interconnections between religion, philosophy, history and literature in modern culture. Kierkegaard (1813–1855)—Danish philosopher, theologian, poet, social critic and religious author widely considered to be the first existentialist philosopher— epitomizes these interconnections.
