Kierkegaard and Eastern Orthodox Thought: A Comparative Philosophical Analysis

Perspectives on Philosophy and Religious Thought; Volume 18


Many scholars have examined relationships between Danish religious philosopher Soren Kierkegaard (1813-55) and both Protestant and Catholic philosophy and theology, says Magnuson, but few have looked at how his work might offer a line of dialogue between Eastern and Western Christianity. He discusses the inscrutable joy of the melancholy Dane and the mystical theology of the Eastern Church, for the wages of sin is the sickness unto death: anxiety and despair in light of the East, the crucifixion and resurrection of the understanding: Kierkegaard's epistemology in light of the East, being as love: personhood and communion, and concluding unscientific remarks on the ecclesiastical event.
