A Kierkegaardian Approach to Moral Philosophy: The Process of Moral Decision-Making

Journal of Religious Ethics 10 (2):221 - 237 (1982)
Abstract
A more complete methodology for normative ethics is needed, and Kierkegaard's philosophy, which emphasizes the individual's role in moral decision-making, can help to meet this need. This essay discusses two ways in which Kierkegaard sought to expand a commonly accepted conception of morality. First, he stressed that the agent changes as part of the process of moral decision-making, with personal experience and insight integral parts of that process. Second, Kierkegaard included within the realm of morality decisions (e.g., about occupation) which are normally viewed as simply matters of personal preference.
