The Danish philosopher's influential work, outlining the distinction between Socratic irony and the leap of faith required for Christian belief, argues that freedom, which cannot be understood or proved, is the necessary condition for Christianity. Also includes the unfinished narrative qJohannes Climacusq in which a man sets out to doubt everything - a critique of Cartesian and Hegelian approaches to philosophy.This volume contains a new translation, with a historical introduction by the translators, of two works written under the pseudonym Johannes Climacus.
