Welcome, good friends! So, since Rachel is already a huge fan of Kierkegaard, and Mike and I were both too combative with him our first time around, we're going to read Works of Love, by Søren Kierkegaard. (Man, somebody is going to have to show me how to type that "ø" so I don't have to keep copying and pasting off of the Kierkegaard wikipedia page.)
Since I want this to be a very relaxed, casual book club that doesn't add extra, undue stress to our already busy lives, and also because Kierkegaard's philosophy is really densely packed, I want to give our reading a very long-form approach. I want the pace to go nice and slow so we can really pick everything apart, so we all have time to contribute, and so we don't have to go at the ungodly rate through the material that university philosophy courses do.
So, I suggest we start with the preface and the first chapter ("Love's Hidden Life and Its Recognizability by Its Fruits"), and we'll mull over that until we are all good and ready to move on. On your marks, get set, read!
P.S. Feel free to start posting here as soon as you have something to say about what you're reading. You don't even have to be done with the chapter if you have something to say. :)
