Kierkegaard's "Fear and Trembling" in Logical Perspective

Journal of Religious Ethics 5 (2):225 - 247 (1977)
  Copy   BIBTEX

Abstract

The author provides explicit philosophical terminology to clarify Kierkegaard's notion of a "teleological suspension of the ethical." He claims that the feature of Abraham's act that placed it beyond the sphere of the ethical was the impossibility of describing it as part of a way of life that one is prepared to commend to others. Thus, the only appropriate response to Abraham is silence.
