About

 

Dear Human Being.

I call myself “Kierkegaard explorer” or “Kierkegaard delivery man” … and I aspire to become a human being.

Since 2001 I have been full-time-exploring how one might actually live the art of Kierkegaard  … and how best to share this art with others … without reducing it to lifeless knowledge.

Please enjoy the suffering.

Claus Damgaard
