Soren Kierkegaard's Journals And Papers

RRP $274.99

" 'I can be understood only after my death, ' Kierkegaard noted prophetically: the fulfillment of this expectation for the English-speaking world a century and a quarter later is signified by the English translation in authoritative editions of all his works by the indefatigable Howard and Edna Hong.... The importance of the Papirer] was emphasized by Kierkegaard himself.... The essentially religious interpretation he gave to his mission in life and his personal relationships is now documented clearly and exhaustively.... Obviously, these editions are essential for academic and large general collections." -- Library Journal

"From this point on, anyone interested in tracking down a Kierkegaardian theme will have to consult the Hong presentation as well as the books of Kierkegaard." -- Annual Review of Philosophy

"The translations are entirely excellent. One envies the Hongs their capacity in language, the breadth of their reading in Kierkegaard and his sources, and the dedication they brought to this Herculean task. The assistance of Gregor Malantschuk has contributed materially to the notes which serve as trenchant summaries of Kierkegaard's thought on the topics.... This is indeed a monumental work." -- Review of Metaphysics

..". an] astonishing labor of editing and translating... " -- International Studies in Philosophy

"Howard and Edna Hong have brought to the task solid scholarship, linguistic competence, an imaginative and useful arrangement of the material, and a scrupulous self-effacement before the work. No one could ask for more." -- Citation of the Judges at the National Book Awards

"We must be grateful to the Hongs for their enormous labor.... Kierkegaard's Journals and Papers are worth having for angry days, or 'inward' days; especially when they have been translated in as lively and sensitive a manner as are the texts in this first volume." -- Nation

The incidental writings of SA, ren Kierkegaard, published in the twenty-volume Danish edition of the Papirer, provide direct access to the thought of the many-faceted nineteenth-century philosopher who exerted so profound an influence on Protestant theology and modern existentialism. This important material, which Danish scholars regard as the "key to the scriptures" of Kierkegaard's other work, spans his entire productive life, the last entry of the Papirer being dated only a few days before his death. These writings have been previously inaccessible in English except for a few fragmentary selections; the most significant writings are now being made available in this definitive seven-volume edition under the editorship of two expert scholars and translators.

Kierkegaard's scattered writings fall into three main subject groupings: journal entries of varied content, notes and early versions of his published material, and personal reactions to his reading and study. In length and degree of polish they range from brief and cryptic notes to extensive lecture material, finished travel sketches, and extended philosophical speculation. The translators provide annotations, copious notes, and a collation of entries with the Danish Papirer.

The editors group the selections in Volumes I through IV by theme, with all entries on a given subject under the same heading. Within subject headings, entries are arranged chronologically, making it feasible to trace the evolution of Kierkegaard's thought on a specific topic. Volumes V and VI are devoted to autobiographical material. Volume VII contains an extensive index with topical crossreferences.


Lady Nugent's East India Journal

RRP $257.99

In 1811, Maria Nugent left her four young children behind in England to accompany her husband, General George Nugent, on his posting as commander-in-chief in India. After a dizzying six months at the head of Calcutta society, the couple embarked on a 14-month tour of the British military stations in northern India, a journey that took them to the very edge of the imperial frontier. On these travels, Lady Nugent met a series of extraordinary figures from Indian history including Mir Jafar's widow, Munni Begum; the Indian grandmother of a British prime minister, the Begum Johnson; and the infamous adventuress and ruthless military leader, the Begum Samru. In Delhi, she enjoyed an audience with the Mughal Emperor, and in the royal zenana she was entertained by his wives and daughters, who were themselves politically astute women.

An account of Lady and General Nugent's remarkable journey across colonial India, this critical edition contextualizes Lady Nugent's East India Journal in the history of India and the British Empire, and the tradition of travel writing. It offers a window into the rarely glimpsed intimate social and domestic worlds of colonial households in British India, and also connects and compares Lady Nugent's time in India with her earlier voyage to Jamaica recorded in her West India journal.


Message From A Traveler

RRP $13.99

There are moments in life in which logic doesn't seem to match any possible expectation and what happens can be seen both as normal as well as surreal, and yet, out of an abnormal reality, we think about something that can't be possibly accepted because, if true, spreads mass panic and, if not, leads us to ridicule. 25 of January 2013 was the day the mysterious reflected in me, showing a man that could have been myself in another time period but was not, or was he? If logic is made out of the reality we usually feel, then that's when our reality changes to guide us into a new paradigm of observations. As I sit and observe the French girl, a few tables apart from me, writing compulsively in her napkin, I know that it's not as much important understanding why she didn't even look at my face as to why is she writing in a napkin. But truly intriguing is the conversation that follows between two men, which even though alive are believed to be dead to the whole world and seen as unreal to the ones that know them. One of them is me and the other I have no idea of who can he be, and that's why this book can only be described as fiction, even though sharing information about a very realistic and probabilistic future for mankind, a future we should all be aware of.
