Wiederum nach Hegel gilt die Philosophie als die strenge Wissenschaft in vollendetem Zustand. Ohne Zorn und Eifer! Wie aber nun die erbauliche Wissenschaft? Der Pietismus des Kant gibt durch seine Definition der Erbauung als der durch Kirchengehen beabsichtigten moralischen Folge aus der Andacht auf das Subjekt dem Ganzen eine moralische Wendung. Kierkegaard nimmt nicht nur diesen christlichen Terminus wieder auf, sondern bedient sich seiner sogar zur Kennzeichnung der Art von Wissenschaft, die er der kritisierten herrschenden Wissenschaft entgegensetzen will.

And so this is what happened: God chose a man who also needed to be educated, and educated him privatissime, so that he might be able to teach others from his own experience. He probably would have not wanted you to know that, but he has plenty more things to let you know.

They call him the "Father of Existentialism". Philosopher, theologian, man in love, man in despair, man in angst, man in thought, man in anxiety, the man who launched the great "Attack on Christendom" in order to save Christianity I can obviously go on but he is almost beyond description in a way though I have just described him at considerable length.

To get to the book itself, it is a relatively short read in comparison to most of his work and is an implicit response to his earlier masterpiece Concluding Unscientific Postscript to "Philosophical Fragments" written under the pseudonym "Johannes Climacus" while this book is written under the name "Anti-Climacus". I have read excerpts of "Postscripts but not the whole work in its entirety it is long , but a lot of the main points are brought up and somewhat expounded on from a different angle here.

In two parts, he is going to talk about the kinds of despair and than what despair actually is. Throughout that time we will get the standard anti- Hegelianism , mixed with the very in-depth psychological, existential obviously, he even uses the word , and theological insight that has made his work as new today as it was 50, , and years ago.

I am constantly amazed at how at his best, he could tell you anything and make it sound ultra-enlightening even if you feel you have heard it before. For such a small book I felt overwhelmed in a good way at all the information that I was getting in such little space. The only other book that really did that to me is Notes from Underground , another existential classic.

This book also recalled Fear and Trembling to my mind. But where that book gives the existential definition of faith the "teleological suspension of the ethical , this book gives the existential definition of sin. One common complaint about this book is about some of the lag in part one which infuriated me when part two came around and he easily explains all the tortured points he was making in a page and a half. The misfortune is not that no one speaks up for Christianity nor, therefore, that there is not enough priests ; but they speak up for for it in such a way that the majority of people end up attaching no meaning to it Thus the highest and holiest leave no impression at all, but sound like something that has now-God knows why-become a matter of form and habits indefensible-they find it requisite to defend Christianity.

It is therefore certain and true that the person who first thought of defending Christianity in Christendom is de facto a Judas No. To defend something is always to discredit it. Let a man have a warehouse full of gold, let him be willing to give away a ducat to every one of the poor - but let him also be stupid enough to begin this charitable undertaking of his with a defence in which he offers three good reasons in justification; and it will almost come to the point of people finding it doubtful whether indeed he is doing something good.

But now for Christianity. Yes, the person who defends that has never believed in it. If he does believe, then the enthusiasm of faith is not a defence, no, it is the assault and the victory; a believer is a victor.

In that work he comments on the absurdity of the idea that the eternal should come into time and die while taking on the form as the least and lowest of men. This is just a taste of the ideas going through this book and I would advise you to read it and experience it for yourself. This book, like many of S. They were not Dante and Beatrice but she had a devastatingly profound effect on him and she could be called, in a way, the mother of existentialism.

This really impresses me and makes me feel that Kierkegaard was probably one of the best psychologist of his own mind outside of Jung.


Søren Kierkegaard

Diesem Thema widmet er sich in seiner kurzen, aber recht komplizierten Schrift mit dem bedrohlichen Titel Die Krankheit zum Tode. Die Abhandlung erschien unter dem Pseudonym Anti-Climacus und ist aus einer christlichen Position geschrieben. Die Krankheit zum Tode ist die Verzweiflung des Menschen. Daher muss der Mensch aktiv gegen seine Verzweiflung angehen.


Die Krankheit zum Tode

Den Schleswig-Holsteinischen Krieg nahm er kaum zur Kenntnis. Kierkegaard war das letzte von sieben Kindern, der Vater war zum Zeitpunkt seiner Geburt bereits 57 Jahre alt. Im September verlobte sich Kierkegaard mit Regine. Diese wuchsen im Laufe der Zeit zu Verzweiflung und innerer Zerrissenheit.
