This chapter discusses the eclectic nature of Søren Kierkegaard's authorship by focusing on his autobiography, The Point of View for My Work as an Author: A Report to History, in which he explains his pseudonymous writings and his personal attachment to those writings. It first considers Kierkegaard's twofold concern in writing the book: to draw attention to the individual and to determine how ‘posterity’ shall read the authorship. It also expounds Kierkegaard's theology with respect to the Enlightenment, modernity and its relation to Christianity, the nature of the self, and what it means to be a human being.

Keywords:   authorship, Søren Kierkegaard, autobiography, The Point of View for My Work as an Author, human being, theology, Enlightenment, modernity, Christianity, the self
