Søren Kierkegaard Research Centre – Copenhagen University

Søren Kierkegaard Research Centre

Søren Kierkegaard’s texts are texts for reflection. They provide their reader unique opportunities to ask fundamental questions about what it means to be human. These are questions that connect people across social, cultural, and religious divides. Thus, the importance of Kierkegaard’s thinking is not just a matter of applying it thematically, but it also requires the reader to take his or her own context into account while thinking with Kierkegaard. This is most apparent when we allow the study of Kierkegaard’s texts to challenge or support other ways of asking existential questions. These include not only philosophical and theological approaches to existence, but also aesthetic approaches as well as those of the human, social, and natural sciences.

Søren Kierkegaard Research Centre thus aims not only to be the international centre for the study of Søren Kierkegaard’s writings, but also a centre for the study of existential questions.
