Description

This volume emphasizes the unity of philosophical outlook and coherence of thought in Soren Kierkegaard's writings. It sketches the development of his thinking on the nature of faith, and identifies the decisive influences on him. Linguistic analysis seeks to clarify his paradoxical theses concerning faith and uncertainty, and his importance, under six headings: faith is not proof; rebuttal of rationalism; rebuttal of the empirical error; religious faith is the answer to a limiting question; the insistence on the inclusion of the person; and the clue to the meaningfulness of religion.
