Søren Kierkegaard

by Lorenzo Piccoli

In Italy May 5th will be remembered as the day Juventus won its twenty-ninth national championship. Across the world, celebrations have marked the 200th anniversary of the birth of Danish thinker Søren Kierkegaard (1813-1855) on May 5. His focus on the existence of the individual, as well as awareness of oneself and one’s future have recently led to a significant resurgence of interest in the work of the “Socrates of Copenhagen”.
