A new call for papers has been announced. From the flyer:

CALL  for PAPERSSLAGMARK–Journal of the History of ideas

#68: Søren Kierkegaard 200 years

(coming out autumn 2013)

”You begin with individuals,  a few  readers,  and the task or the movement is then to gather together a mass, to get an abstraction: the Audience.”

(On My Work as an Author)

Søren Kierkegaard’s authorship has a rich and nuanced history of reception. Kierkegaard’s engagement and unique style as a writer and thinker as well as his aesthetical, ethical and religious writer pseudonyms have inspired a range of different receptions within different geographies and fields of study.

With a special edition in honour of Kierkegaard’s 200th birthday, Slagmark brings into focus various tendencies in Kierkegaard’s reception and inheritors: within philosophy, theology, psychology, literature and politics; in Denmark, USA, Germany and France.

Contributions may focus on (but are not limited to) the following themes:

> Philosophy of existence

> Criticism of culture

> Criticism of religion

> Modern theology

> Art and aesthetics

> Post-structuralism
