The Perfection of the Kierkegaardian Self in Regulative Perspective

Onderzoeksoutput: Chapterpeer review


In different pseudonymous works, Kierkegaard describes the self as a striving being constantly on its way to perfecting itself. The religious goal of this striving, however, cannot be rendered in objective terms and, from an existential point of view, it cannot be attained. In dissolving the object pole of the God-relation into the subject's relating to it, Kierkegaard is often looked upon as a subjectivist, an irrationalist or an anti-realist. In interpreting the Kierkegaardian God-idea within a regulative perspective there seems to be an interpretation possible that does justice to both the subjective solicitude and the ontological concern about God, and that moreover does not shut the door on any rational or philosophical discussion of the God-problem.
