Existentialism: Soren Kierkegaard, Fear and Trembling (part 1)

In this lecture, we begin to study one of Soren Kierkegaard's most important works: Fear and Trembling. This lecture provides an overview of the text as a whole, and then examines all of the sections, except for the three problemata at the center of the book (covered in the second lecture). We discuss in particular the relationship between faith, religion, theology, reason, philosophy -- and lived experience. We also focus on Kierkegaard's treatment of Abraham and how he transcends the category of the Tragic Hero.
