Thesis entitled Kierkegaard and Indirect Communication, successfully defended on the 13th of July 2006. External examiner: Dr. Stephen Mulhall, New College, University of Oxford. Thesis supervised by: Dr. John Lippitt, and Professor Daniel D. Hutto, University of Hertfordshire. 

Contrary to the prevailing orthodoxy of naturalistic and secular accounts of Kierkegaard’s method of ‘indirect communication’, my thesis argues that only a theological interpretation in which Christ figures as absolute and transcendent can do justice to the claims Kierkegaard makes on behalf of his project.
