Kierkegaard's Relations to Hegel Reconsidered, Cambridge University Press Jon Stewart 2007 External links Fear and Trembling ]• Ultimately, whether Kierkegaard's Johannes de silentio is to be read with irony or edification appears as undecidable as whether we should view Abraham as a murderous madman -- who in contrast to Nietzsche's madman proclaiming the death of god proclaims a living god who has commanded the death of his son and then later a ram, or the great father of faith.
Somehow in faith we put aside the universal level of the ethical, and once again return to the individual response, but not at the purely intuitive level of the aesthetic, but in an infinite leap of faith, even a leap into the absurd and unintelligible, but into the will of God.
He split the firewood, he bound Isaac, he lit the fire, he drew the knife. Do you think it is God's command, no it is my desire. Look to the empty tomb, behold the glory of your risen King, and declare his goodness and grace over your situation.
He attends to his business, and when one sees him one might think he was a clerk who had lost his soul in doing double bookkeeping, he is so exact. In Fear and Trembling, Kierkegaard wanted to understand the anxiety that must have been present in Abraham when God commanded him to offer his son as a human sacrifice. While several contributors sensitively discuss the oft-neglected feminine perspectives in their readings of Fear and Trembling, there does not appear to be any comparable sensitivity towards Fear and Trembling animal.
While he claimed not to know Hebrew, Kierkegaard did, as has been determined from his personal library.
Righteousness for a sinner only comes through in Christ, by admission of neediness in bowing before the able Savior and Lord.
Jeffrey Hanson investigates the related idea that Abraham experiences an inner truth that cannot be expressed in rational discourse.
haha, boy do i get ahead of myself sometimes! A foolish hope it had been, but Abraham had not laughed when the promise had been made him.
