ABSTRACT
The article reports that one hundred years after Danish philosopher Soren Kierkegaard's death in November, 1855, his fame is still in a process of world-wide expansion. Most of his works, including a selection of his journals, are now available in English. However, his devoted students have frequently learned Danish to make sure of his exact meaning. His terminology and a deliberate concealment of much of his personal conflicts and attitudes behind a screen of wit and irony makes a clear and systematic presentation of his train of thought difficult.
