Welcome to Korrektiv Press!

Korrektiv Press is a fledgling enterprise that rose from the primordial soup of a blog inspired by the spirit of Kierkegaard and Walker Percy. (The press takes its name from Kierkegaard’s effort to provide a “korrektiv” to Hegel’s philosophy of world-historical forces, asserting against those forces the significance and worth of the individual.) Korrektiv, the blog, appeared in 2004 and has featured the writing of a variety of real and pseudonymous authors: some poets, some fictionists, some essayists—but nearly all of them self-identified as bad Catholics afflicted with the desire to write good stuff.
