Kierkegaard’s Description of the Romantic Ironist as a Sign of the Times Then and Now

In The Concept of Irony Kierkegaard explores a contemporary movement that he refers to as “irony.” He claims that this movement arose from the works of the Romantic writers, such as Friedrich von Schlegel and Ludwig Tieck. Moreover, it has roots in the philosophical tradition of German idealism and most importantly in Fichte’s philosophy. Kierkegaard’s penetrating description of the guiding ideas of what he takes to be the ironic way of thinking has, I wish to argue, great modern relevance for us today. Much of what he ascribes to the ironist can be seen in different cultural developments of our own time in the 21st century.
