abstract = "This book is an introductory text that attempts to introduce the thought of S{\o}ren Kierkegaard to first-time readers. But unlike most introductions to the Danish thinker that rehearse clich{\'e}s about the stage theory, this book takes a new approach. At the end of his life Kierkegaard says that the only model that he ever had for his work was the Greek philosopher Socrates. This book takes this statement by Kierkegaard as its point of departure. It tries to explore what Kierkegaard meant by this and to show how different aspects of his writing and argumentative strategy can be traced back to Socrates. The main focus is The Concept of Irony, which is a key text at the beginning of Kierkegaard’s literary career. Although it was an early work, it nevertheless played a determining role in his later development and writings. Indeed, it can be said that in it Kierkegaard laid the groundwork for much of what would appear in his later famous books such as Either/Or and Fear and Trembling. Another important goal of the book is to try to determine the modern relevance of Kierkegaard’s thought. As the title indicates, he can be seen as offering important insight into the modern issues of freedom, relativism, subjectivism, nihilism, meaninglessness, and alienation.",
