By E. D. Klemke (auth.)

In this quantity, i've got given cognizance to what I deliberate to be a number of the relevant difficulties and issues within the philosophical considered SjiSren Kierkegaard. a number of the chapters were formerly put up­ ed yet have been revised for his or her visual appeal the following. Others have been written expressly for this e-book. i've got attempted to target matters that have now not been mainly handled or emphasised within the scholarship on Kierkegaard except for the writings of David Swenson and Paul L. Holmer to which (and to whom) i'm significantly indebted. many of the positions for which i've got argued during this quantity (especially in Chapters IV and V) might be arguable. i'm thankful to all those that enabled me to hold out or inspired me in my stories of Kierkegaard or who assisted in regards to the examine for or guidance of this quantity. between those are: Professors Paul L. Holmer, F. Arthur Jacobson, and Dennis A. Rohatyn; Dean Wallace A. Russell and vp Daniel J. Zaffarano of Iowa kingdom University.

Within the 16th century, the Christian church and Christian worship fragmented right into a multiplicity of confessions that has grown to the current day.

Example text

Obviously, as far as grammar is concerned, this is a proper statement. However, grammar is not the only criterion by which to judge whether or not a sentence is meaningful. 'Happiness travels at the speed of 60 miles per hour', is grammatically proper. Yet it has no clear meaning. In a similar way, it is appropriate to ask whether 'God exists' has any meaning. 3 One cannot, therefore, escape the problem by professing atheism, for, if the affirmation of a sentence is absurd, then the denial is equally absurd.

G. " In Section III, I shall merely state Collingwood's views. In Section IV, I shaH apply one of these doctrines toward a possible "solution" of our problem by way of some views held by Kierkegaard. 111 The particular views of Collingwood which are of relevance for the issue at hand are found in An Essay on Metaphysics. 6 The opening pages of the work are devoted to a consideration of Aristotle's metaphysics, in which Collingwood finds three definitions of metaphysics: (i) Metaphysics is the science of pure being.

Even theologians and philosophers of religion have admitted this. 4 A few fallacies in reasoning might be mentioned. The sentence 'God exists' is held, in the ontological argument and in variants of the cosmological argument, to be logically necessary; but no existential proposition can be logically necessary. And the argument from analogy, which occurs in the teleological argument, is shaky, since arguments from analogy never bridge the leap from the finite evidence to the infinite existent. One might object that although these particular arguments, and all variants of them, are invalid, the conclusion may, nevertheless, be true.
