Welcome to “Piety on Kierkegaard.” I’m the Kierkegaard scholar M.G. Piety. I’m a 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 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. I’m not going to write exclusively about 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 and people in related fields such as the philosophy of religion and European history. I plan to post new entries about once a month, but not always on the same day of the month, so if you want to make sure that you don’t miss any entries, just subscribe to the blog. If you subscribe, you will get an email every time there is a new entry. Thanks for reading!
