“The one thing needed in life is to find the idea for which I can live and die.”

Kierkegaard, 1835


Welcome to the Kierkegaard Society of the UK


The Society aims to bring together persons from all walks of life with an interest in the works of Søren Kierkegaard. We meet annually at a mini-conference to discuss papers on Kierkegaard, including his relation to various contemporary movements of thought. Papers on the relationship between Kierkegaard and Freud, Heidegger, Derrida, Levinas and Cavell, amongst others, have recently been delivered. Meetings are usually in May, on the Saturday nearest to Kierkegaard's birth date (5 May).

The Society is a corporate member of the British Philosophical Association (BPA).
