"Philosophical Fragments" (Danish title: _da. "Philosophiske Smuler eller En Smule Philosophi") was a philosophical work written by Danish philosopher Søren Kierkegaard in 1844 and the first of three works written under the pseudonym "Johannes Climacus".

The question involves how knowledge can be known, and Climacus discusses how the theories of Socratic recollection and Christian divinity can inform the learner of truth. At the same time, it is an important early text in existentialist philosophy. Like many of his other works, it was not translated into German and English until several decades after Kierkegaard's death, but it then became a prominent work in philosophy.
