As a spiritual autobiography, Kierkegaard'sThe Point of View for My Work as an Authorstands among such great works as Augustine'sConfessionsand Newman'sApologia pro vita sua. YetPoint of Viewis neither a confession nor a defense; it is an author's story of a lifetime of writing, his understanding of the maze of greatly varied works that make up his oeuvre.Upon the imminent publication of the second edition ofEither/Or, Kierkegaard again intended to cease writing. Now was the time for a direct "report to history" on the authorship as a whole. In addition toPoint of View, which was published posthumously, the present volume also containsOn My Work as an Author, a contemporary substitute, and the companion pieceArmed Neutrality.
