(p.140) 5 Concluding Unscientific Postscript to Philosophical Fragments
Kierkegaard: Exposition & Critique

Daphne Hampson

Oxford University Press

This chapter offers a reading of Søren Kierkegaard's philosophical work Concluding Unscientific Postscript to ‘Philosophical Fragments’ to illuminate his ideas about ‘the eternal’ and its Paradox. The book is divided into two parts, the second of which concerns subjectivity and the subjective relation to the thought of the eternal within religion in general and within Christianity in particular. The chapter first considers Kierkegaard's views about Georg Wilhelm Friedrich Hegel and Hegelianism within the context of the relationship between modernity and Christianity and the relationship of history to faith. It then examines Kierkegaard's arguments about God's transcendence and revelation, faith and subjectivity. The chapter concludes by asking whether Kierkegaard's authorship may or may not have fed into the cult of irrationalism.
