Writing under the pseudonym of Johannes de silentio, Kierkegaard uses the form of a dialectical lyric to present his conception of faith. Abraham is portrayed as a great man, who chose to sacrifice his son, Isaac, in the face of conflicting expectations and in defiance of any conceivable ethical standard. The infamous and controversial 'teleological suspension of the ethical' challenged the contemporary views of Hegel's universal moral system, and the suffering individual must alone make a choice 'on the strength of the absurd'. Kierkegaard's writings have inspired both modern Protestant theology and existentialism.

Another stupid book. SUCKS! Just the writer ran around bloody faith-abraham-god-faith-abraham. Nothing new. A foolish view. Leggi recensione completa

Review: Fear and Trembling

Recensione dell'utente  - Daniel Wright - Goodreads

I need to re-read this; it requires a great deal more effort than I put in the first time. Also, the edition I read was dismally bad, like the translator was determined to make sure you couldn't follow it. Leggi recensione completa
