This chapter examines to what extent apophatic motifs are present in the basic structure of Søren Kierkegaard's thought, particularly in his dialectics. It analyses the dialectical structure of Kierkegaard's works and the form of dialectics he used to analyse existential and philosophical problems and suggests that apophatic motifs can be found in the very foundations upon which Kierkegaard's thought is based. Though there are many different interpretations of Kierkegaard's dialectics there is a general agreement that he has transposed Hegelian dialectics from the essential to the existential.
