Søren Kierkegaard's Chicken Noodle soup

Søren Kierkegaard

Søren Kierkegaard

Philosopher & Author
1813 – 1855

The Danish philosopher, theologian, poet and author Søren Kierkegaard was born in 1813 in Copenhagen. Kierkegaard was born to an affluent but strictly puritanical home. His upbringing in combination with an unfortunate love life laid the foundation for his groundbreaking thoughts about the true meaning of life.

According to Kierkegaard, a person only truly lives when she chooses herself. The opposite of living is to do like everyone else – to let life go to waste. Thus, according to Kierkegaard, there is no meaning in life beyond the meaning we give it.

Kierkegaard is considered by many to be father of existentialism and his philosophy has influenced a large number of great thinkers such as Simone de Beauvoir, Niels Bohr, Albert Camus and Jean-Paul Sartre, to name a few. His impact on Western philosophy, theology and culture is profound.

Kierkegaard loved food and would often eat at exclusive restaurants, but in his childhood his mother Ane was the one who cooked for him. Her special chicken soup was one of Søren’s favourite dishes – a recipe that includes vegetables, chicken, herbs and noodles.
