Neither/Nor: Kierkegaard Between Philosophy and Literature

Chris Norris will be looking at the various approaches to Kierkegaard that have marked the authorship's reception-history over the period from Sartre to Derrida. This will involve discussion of – among other things – the typecast literature/philosophy distinction in the broader historical context of developments from Jena Romanticism to Paul de Man. His talk will be structured around a number of Kierkegaard-themed or more broadly related poems from Norris's recent collections.
