Kierkegaard in a Nutshell – Review

Kierkegaard is regarded as the founder of existentialism.

In this book, a series of highlights from his major works, Kierkegaard asserts that if he were capable of grasping God objectively, he would not have faith. As he can’t do this, grasp God objectively, he requires his faith and if he wishes to retain this faith, he must hold fast to the objective uncertainty.

Faith is a matter of subjective decision, not objective knowledge.

Those who can really stand alone in the world, only taking counsel from conscience – they are the true heroes.
