“The Crisis:” A practical realization of Kierkegaard's aesthetic philosophy
- 55 Downloads
This analysis of Kierkegaard's article “The Crisis and a Crisis in the Life of an Actress” (1848/1967) reveals his prodigious ability to deal synchronically with aesthetic philosophy of existence at both metaphysical and pragmatic levels. It also reveals his ability to view women as individuals in the realm of art. Here he is able to make the exception and grant women full equality in both the categories of eternity and temporality.
