    Abstract:
    "Kierkegaard’s output is vast and earlier, was not available in English. Had they been available then certainly [Edith] Stein, [Simone] Weil, [Hannah] Arendt, and [Susan] Neiman would have constructed their theodicies around Kierkegaard more fully, abandoning the charlatanism of Martin Heidegger’s Nazi histrionics. These Princeton hardbacks, handsomely bound, with appealing fonts and meticulous notes will help disseminate Kierkegaard’s writings to a broader audience." This is how this review focussed on Kierkegaard's theodicy sees the volume under review. The reviewer thanks the Ramakrishna Mission for getting the hardcopy of this book to this reviewer who is a recluse in a non-glamorous backwater within Kolkata; India. If the Ramakrishna Mission weren't generous enough; then this reviewer would not have been able to get his hardcover copy. This reviewer thanks the Ramakrishna Mission for trusting in a person who has not taken any courses in philosophy and has hardly travelled out of Kolkata.
    Notes:
    First world scholars in their white-hot rage take it as a given that Indian writings don't matter. But the Ramakrishna Mission will outlast this reviewer by centuries when this site will be no more. In this sense; this review matters and those named in this review which, at the cost of reiterating, will be remembered two hundred years hence. So, there we go...Indian writers on European thinkers do matter and will matter.
