Kierkegaard on Faith, Reason, and Passion

Faith and Philosophy 28 (1):82-92 (2011)
  Copy   BIBTEX


Religious faith is often critiqued as irrational either because its beliefs do not rise to the level of knowledge as defined by some philosophical theory or be­cause it rests on emotion rather than knowledge. Or both. Kierkegaard helps us to see how these arguments rest on a misunderstanding of all three terms: faith, reason, and emotion.
