Love affair with Western thought continues

The love affair with Western thought continues. Just read about how Kierkegaard wanted his philosophical writings to be read without being concerned about the author, which means he anticipated Barthes.

A. Aumann (‎2011) observes:

[Berthold portrays Hegel and Kierkegaard as anticipating the concerns of postmodern thinkers from Roland Barthes and Jacques Derrida to Michel Foucault and Jacques Lacan (EA 134).]

Hegel and Kierkegaard concurring on this is further interesting. So, there is no escape from Hegel. The second book co-edited by Rimina on Hegel is in press and Silika's dissertation on OOO is receiving final touches, as I turn 61 today. [TNM55]
