have no idea never heard of him but based on the surface of his books is Enten -Eller
Hi m8, its a 2 part Q
First of all, we have to accomplish Plato's cave with a diffrent perspective (Descartes' skeptisizm - late aristotlizm)
Second part is Karl Popper's logic (anti-aristotle)
After readding those papers u may check Kierkegard's Fideism P.36
never though he was referring to a book
I don't know, maybe Fear and Trembling? That's the only book I know from him. Most of what I know about him is from others
"Kierkegaard's classic and most important example of such a leap is Abraham's Leap of faith. In Fear and Trembling".
There you go.
It’s better translated as a “leap into faith.”
I believe he is talking about the true need of faith in human existence, isn't just about to seek the truth which was Plato idea of real philosopher, he transcended this idea taking to the "be", in the book Sygdommen til Døden he enlights the fact of is kinda dumb not to believe in God, just because He is part of our existence, and the suffering is the lack of it in our soul. I read just a bit part of his work and this is what i understood, i can't offer you more my friend.
god tells abraham to kill his own son and doesnt explain why, just tells him to do it. seems absolutely insane to abraham, he loves his child more than hes ever loved anything in his life, he doesnt want to kill his child. he places 100% of his faith in his god and takes the leap of faith, and tries to kill his own son, then god is pleased with his faith and stops abraham from committing the act.
tldr if god tells you to do something crazy, do it (unless you have schizophrenia)
