(p.11) 1 Kierkegaard’s Intellectual Context
Kierkegaard: Exposition & Critique

Daphne Hampson

Oxford University Press

This chapter provides the background for Søren Kierkegaard's philosophical and intellectual context that will enable comprehension of his authorship. It first considers Immanuel Kant's ‘pure’ philosophy (epistemology), his moral philosophy, and his ‘reading’ of Christian scripture and doctrine before comparing Kantian ethics with Kierkegaard's own attitude towards ethics. It then explores Kierkegaard's adherence to Christianity and his idea of God entering history in Christ. The chapter also discusses the structure of Kierkegaard's Lutheran thought in relation to modernity and concludes by exploring the question of the so-called epistemology of history.

Keywords:   authorship, Søren Kierkegaard, Immanuel Kant, moral philosophy, ethics, Christianity, history, Lutheran thought, modernity, epistemology
