bookshelves: theory-non-fiction

Kierkegaard has some really interesting insights and comments about despair, and is am important precursor to the existentialism of Sartre and the absurdism of Camus. However, Kierkegaard is not exactly my speed. He's too much a Christian, making the means of escaping despair a positive or proper relationship with God. It simply doesn't work for me, and I feel more inclined toward a Camusian belief that god(s) may or may not exist but cannot produce human meaning or be known by humans.
