Kierkegaardian Studies (French: Études kierkegaardiennes) is a 1938 book about Søren Kierkegaard by philosopher Jean Wahl. Its publication marked a significant turning-point in French philosophy, which formally introduced and disseminated Kierkegaard's philosophy to France.[1] Kierkegaardian Studies was one of the first French studies of Kierkegaard to treat him as a coherent philosopher and theologian, and raised questions that became central to Kierkegaard studies and to Existentialism in general.[1] Before Wahl's book, very few people in France knew much about Kierkegaard. After it, almost every French intellectual did.[2]
