Kresten Nordentoft lectured at University of Aarhus (Denmark) in Scandinavian literature. In 1974 he was a visiting professor at Duquesne University's Psychology Department, acquainting both professors and students with Kierkegaardian theory.
Bruce H. Kirmmse, Emeritus Professor of History at Connecticut College, is the author of Kierkegaard in Golden Age Denmark, Encounters With Kierkegaard, and numerous articles. His translations include Joakim Garff's Kierkegaard: A Biography. Kirmmse has served on the faculty of the University of Copenhagen, where he was director of the Department of Soren Kierkegaard Research, and as general editor of the 11 volume set of Kierkegaard's Journals and Notebooks.
"Nordentoft's Kierkegaard's Psychology is still the best and most incisive overview of Kierkegaard's psychological thinking--it remains the standard work in the field."
--Niels Jorgen Cappelorn
"Nordentoft has written one of the most important and wonderfully concrete books we have seen for many years. It is very intelligent, unusually clear and, thorough, and it should be considered one of the weightiest publications within Scandinavian psychology for a very long time. It is something of a monumental work."
