Kierkegaard After MacIntyre
Essays on Freedom, Narrative, and Virtue

Edited by John Davenport and Anthony Rudd

The last decade has seen a revival of interest in Kierkegaard's thought, particularly in the fields of theology, social theory, and literary and cultural criticism. The resulting discussions have done much to discredit the earlier misreadings of Kierkegaard's works. This collection of essays by Kierkegaard scholars represents the new consensus on Kierkegaard and his conception of moral selfhood. It answers the charges of one of Kierkegaard's biggest critics, contemporary philosopher Alasdair MacIntyre, and shows how some of Kierkegaard's insights into tradition, virtuous character, and the human good may actually support MacIntyre's ideas.

“Fourteen essays consider MacIntyre’s critique of Kierkegaard’s view that ethical interpretations are chosen. They re-read and clarify Kierkegaard’s position, examine the commonalities and divergences between existentialism and contemporary virtue ethics, and defend against the charge of irrationalism. The role of narrative, reason, choice, Christianity, and truth are highlighted.”
