Piety on Kierkegaard

In Uncategorized on December 17, 2010 at 3:42 pm

Welcome to “Piety on Kierkegaard.” I’m the Kierkegaard scholar M.G. Piety. I’m an associate professor of philosophy at Drexel University in Philadelphia. I’m the translator of Kierkegaard’s Repetition and Philosophical Crumbs (Oxford, 2009) and the author of Ways of Knowing: Kierkegaard’s Pluralistic Epistemology (Baylor, 2010).. I moved to Denmark in the fall of 1990 on a Fulbright fellowship to work on Kierkegaard’s epistemology at the University of Copenhagen and remained there until the fall of 1998. That’s right, I lived in Denmark for eight years. That was an enormously valuable period for me as a scholar. My teaching duties were light and my access to sources was almost unlimited.

I made many important contacts when I lived in Copenhagen. I’m fortunate in that these contacts keep me up to date with what’s going on in Kierkegaard scholarship in Denmark. I’m starting this blog, in part, to allow people outside Denmark to keep up with these goings on as well. The first bit of news I have is that Pia Søltoft is supposedly the new director of the Søren Kierkegaard Research Center, even though her name does not appear on their website.

I’m not going to write exclusively about what’s going on in Denmark though, I’m also going to post information about my books on Kierkegaard and other books that I think would be of interest to Kierkegaard scholars.

  2. Dear Sir!
    Very interesting! I am happy for Peter Tudvad and his latest marvelous book covering Kierkegaard and his hostile words about the jews, that it will now hopefully be translated into the american language.
    I expect myself to graduate in a few weeks as master of theology, writing my last thesis these days:’Kierkegaard and his church critism and whether it is still valid today’.

    God bless!
