Please visit Gordon Marino’s official webpage for his curriculum vitae and an overview of his published works, including links to his newest book (see The Existentialist’s Survival Guide: How to Live Authentically in an Inauthentic Age) and the dozens of the articles written for internationally prominent news sources such as the New York Times, Atlantic Monthly, and Huffington Post.


The Hong Kierkegaard Library maintains a list of works published by the Kierkegaard House Fellows. Each year, the Hong Kierkegaard Library invites a hand-picked group of scholars to join the Fellow’s program and live on the St. Olaf College campus for a full year, starting in early September and lasting through the end of August the following year. The Fellows spend their time advancing their research projects and engaging with the unique resources offered by the Hong Kierkegaard Library.


The Hongs centered their translation and publication of the multi-volume series entitled Kierkegaard’s Writings in the Library for a number of years. This effort was completed in May of 2000 with the publication of Cumulative Index to Kierkegaard’s Writings, volume twenty six. Copies of Kierkegaard’s Writings can be found online or in the official St. Olaf College Bookstore located in Buntrock Commons.
