Sample text

He showed that love of neighbor is the Christian expression for true community. Christian love, however, is not what people generally take it to be; it is not the same as doing good to one another. Only conduct toward God, decision in the sight of God, can show what true love is. This decision, however, is the decision of the individual. When everything has become quiet around man, solemn as a starlit night, when the soul is alone with itself in the whole world, then it is not an outstanding man who meets the soul, but it is the eternal power itself, it is as if the heavens open and the ego chooses itself, or rather receives itself.

Higher than this the state does not go; and one must really call it dubious-considered as moral education and development. Moreover, the state is continuously involved in that Sophistry which had so much occupied the Greek Sophists: that wrong, on a grand scale, is right; that concepts, in a peculiar way, reverse themselves or pass over into their opposites; and that it only depends on doing this on a grand scale. Furthermore, the state is continuously subjected to the scepticism which holds that the numerical determines the concept, and that truth is the greatest number.

For it is precisely against such a view that he wrote. ; or (b), write a critical literature in which one engages the argument, religious and philosophic. In the first instance there is no promise of a systematic consequence unless a metaphysics of learning obtains (and then Kierkegaard is wrong); in the second instance one writes not about the man and his books as much as one translates his language and thoughts into one's own. This latter endeavor has a dignity of its own even though the scholar's community seldom attempts it.
