Course Description

Kierkegaard is a figure whose influence is felt throughout contemporary cultural discourse. On the one hand, he is known as the father of existentialism, an atheistic movement. On the other, he dedicated his life and work to faith and finding union with God. Can we reconcile suffering and faith? Why does Kierkegaard regard courage as a fundamental virtue? How can we love others, knowing full well that all love ends in loss?

In this course, Dr Clare Carlisle guides us through Plato, Aristotle, Luther, Kant and the Story of Abraham to reveal Kierkegaard’s unique take on the profound suffering integral to faith.

  • Why anxiety, fear and trembling define human life.
  • How courage, not obedience, is the best means to express faith.
