PHIL 325 Kierkegaard, Meaning, and the Self (4)

A careful reading of Soren Kierkegaard's Fear and Trembling, Philosophical Fragments, and Concluding Unscientific Postscript, with special attention to the apparent paradox involved in the Postscript's claim that truth is subjectivity. The relationship between faith and reason will be explored as well as the distinction between subjectivity and objectivity as these distinctions bear on the question of what makes for a meaningful life in the present age.
