Kierkegaard: Anxiety, Repetition and Contemporaneity - download pdf or read online

Focusing totally on the writings of Kierkegaard and secondarily on these of Kant, St. Augustine and Schelling, this paintings deals a singular and difficult approach of imminent the options of hysteria, repetition, freedom and contemporaneity. Pivotal to this venture is a reinterpretation of Kierkegaard's idea of 'taking detect' and its elevation to the prestige of a primary precept which opens up new interpretive dimensions.

Example text

Neither has it the sense of loss or ‘sadness’ felt in recollection of what is passed. What is in the past is no longer new, it is finished with. But the moment is not simply something new either, Constantius explains: ‘it is only of the new one grows tired’, one constantly wants something new and is never satisfied. The moment properly experienced as repetition is sure and certain and secure. It is blissful and a blessing. 158 O ne who has come to themself in the moment acquires a new ‘organ’ or mode of understanding which is faith, is a wholly new ability as well as a new awareness.

Correspondingly, when concentration of ‘mind and energy’ is focused too much on the temporal moment ‘then vision is lost’. Kierkegaard’s character of the Seducer in E ither/Or is representative of one who lives ‘in the moment’ in such a way, a ‘Don Juan’ immersed in an aesthetic existence and engrossed in ‘an enjoyment of isolated moments’, a ‘perversion of the moment’ proper.
