Soren Kierkegaard
As was suggested we’ll be discussing the ideas of Danish philosopher and theologian Soren Kierkegaard. Often cited as the father of modern existentialist philosophy, he’s also an important thinker within post-enlightenment Christianity. His writings focus on the anxieties of the human condition and man’s search for personal meaning. Questions to consider; How do Kierkegaard’s ideas diverge from traditional Christian thought? Is his a pessimistic or optimistic philosophy? Can they be useful to those who don’t share his Christian belief? Hope to see you there.
