Sample text

Whatever its importance to most scholars, it had an importance to Kierkegaard which was reflected in the very epistemological rudimenta by which he articulated his literature. It is to these I now turn. II Kierkegaard is distinguished for his exacting use of distinctions. One of these is the distinction between possibility and possibles, on the one side, and actuality and actuals, on the other. 2 Every actual about which I have knowledge has to be given a conceptual existence before it can be known.

But Kierkegaard's contention is also to the effect that passion has qualities and that qualities can be known. And it is hese which his writings convey to the reader. To say that there are qualities of passion presupposes (a) that qualities are knowable and communicable, (b) that they are communicable as possibles,(c) that their qualities qua possibles are not themselves passions. , they can be described. It is Kierkegaard's uniqueness as a philosopher to have said that ethical possibles have as their correlatives, however, human passions.
