Kierkegaard scholar to present lecture series at BYU March 4-6

The Brigham Young University Department of Philosophy will host a series of lectures by Bruce Kirmmse, a Kierkegaard scholar visiting from Denmark, Wednesday through Friday, March 4-6, at 2 p.m. in B192 Joseph F. Smith Building.

Admission is free, and the public is invited to attend.

• Wednesday — Kirmmse will introduce his work on Søren Kierkegaard’s troubled ecclesiology with his lecture “I am not a Christian — A Sublime Lie?”

• Thursday — Sponsored by the de Tocqueville Club of the Political Science Department, Kirmmse will present “One Day in the Life of the Spy Who Came in From the Cold War — and Found God.”

• Friday — “The Thunderstorm” will conclude Kirmmse’s discussion on Kierkegaard’s troubled ecclesiology.

For the past 20 years, Kirmmse has divided his time between Connecticut and Copenhagen, working as a professor of history at the Connecticut College and as director of the Department of Søren Kierkegaard Research in Copenhagen.

He received his bachelor’s degree from Wesleyan University and his master’s and doctoral degrees in intellectual history from the University of California, Berkeley. He also studied at the University of Chicago Divinity School and the University of Copenhagen.
