    As part of the widespread turn to narrative in contemporary philosophy, several commentators have recently attempted to sign Kierkegaard up for the narrative cause, most notably in John Davenport and Anthony Rudd's recent collection Kierkegaard After MacIntyre: Essays on Freedom, Narrative and Virtue. I argue that the aesthetic and ethical existence-spheres in Either/Or cannot adequately be distinguished in terms of the MacIntyre-inspired notion of 'narrative unity'. Judge William's argument for the ethical life contains far more in the way of substantive (...)

    Humour and Irony in Kierkegaard's Thought.John Lippitt - 2000 - St. Martin's Press.
    Irony, humor and the comic play vital yet under-appreciated roles in Kierkegaard's thought. Focusing upon the Concluding Unscientific Postscript , this book investigates these roles, relating irony and humor as forms of the comic to central Kierkegaardian themes. How does the comic function as a form of "indirect communication"? What roles can irony and humor play in the infamous Kierkegaardian "leap"? Do certain forms of wisdom depend upon possessing a sense of humor? And is such a sense of humor thus (...)

    True Self-Love and True Self-Sacrifice.John Lippitt - 2009 - International Journal for Philosophy of Religion 66 (3):125-138.
    In recent commentary on Kierkegaard’s Works of Love, a distinction is commonly drawn between ‘proper’ and ‘selfish’ forms of self- love. In arguing that not all vices of self-focus can be captured under the heading of selfishness, I seek to distinguish selfishness from self-centredness. But the latter vice has a far more handsome cousin: proper self-focus of the kind necessary for ‘becoming a self’. As various feminist thinkers have argued, this will be missed if we valorise self-sacrifice too uncritically. But (...)

    Making Sense of Nonsense: Kierkegaard and Wittgenstein.John Lippitt & Daniel Hutto - 1998 - Proceedings of the Aristotelian Society 98 (3):263–286.
    The aim of this paper is to make sense of cases of apparent nonsense in the writings of Kierkegaard and Wittgenstein. Against commentators such as Cora Diamond and James Conant, we argue that, in the case of Wittgenstein, recognising such a category of nonsense is necessary in order to understand the development of his thought. In the case of Kierkegaard, we argue against the view that the notion of the 'absolute paradox' of the Christian incarnation is intended to be nonsensical. (...)

    Routledge Philosophy Guidebook to Kierkegaard and Fear and Trembling.John Lippitt - 2003 - Routledge.
    Kierkegaard, described by Wittgenstein as "by far the most profound thinker of the [nineteenth] century," has influenced a wide range of philosophers and theologians. Fear and Trembling , which investigates the nature of faith and its relation to ethics via a discussion of the story of Abraham and Isaac, is one of Kierkegaard's most compelling and popular works. Kierkegaard and Fear and Trembling introduces and assesses: * Kierkegaard's life and the background to Fear and Trembling * The ideas and text (...)

    What Neither Abraham nor Johannes de Silentio Could Say.John Lippitt - 2008 - Aristotelian Society Supplementary Volume 82 (1):79-99.
    Though there are significant points of overlap between Michelle Kosch's reading of Fear and Trembling and my own, this paper focuses primarily on a significant difference: the legitimacy or otherwise of looking to paradigmatic exemplars of faith in order to understand faith. I argue that Kosch's reading threatens to underplay the importance of exemplarity in Kierkegaard's thought, and that there is good reason to resist her use of Philosophical Fragments as the key to interpreting the 'hidden message' of Fear and (...)

    Cracking the Mirror: On Kierkegaard's Concerns About Friendship. [REVIEW]John Lippitt - 2007 - International Journal for Philosophy of Religion 61 (3):131 - 150.
    In this article, I offer a brief account of some of Kierkegaard’s key concerns about friendship: its “preferential” nature and its being a form of self-love. Kierkegaard’s endorsement of the ancient idea of the friend as “second self” involves a common but misguided assumption: that friendship depends largely upon likeness between friends. This focus obscures a vitally important element, highlighted by the so-called “drawing” view of friendship. Once this is emphasized, we can see a significant aspect - though by no (...)

    Kierkegaard and the Problem of Special Relationships: Ferreira, Krishek and the 'God Filter'. [REVIEW]John Lippitt - 2012 - International Journal for Philosophy of Religion 72 (3):177-197.
    Kierkegaard’s Works of Love has often been accused of being unable to deal adequately with ‘special relationships’. This debate has re-emerged in a fresh form in a recent disagreement in the secondary literature between M. Jamie Ferreira and Sharon Krishek. Krishek charges Ferreira with failing to acknowledge some important conflicts in Kierkegaard’s account of preferential love. In this article, I argue that some key passages are indeed insufficiently addressed in Ferreira’s account. Yet ultimately, I argue, Krishek ends up condemning the (...)

    A Funny Thing Happened to Me on the Way to Salvation: Climacus as Humorist in Kierkegaard's Concluding Unscientific Postscript.John Lippitt - 1997 - Religious Studies 33 (2):181-202.
    According to James Conant, the 'revocations' made of the "Concluding Unscientific Postscript" and the "Tractatus" by their authors mean that we should view these texts as containing 'simple nonsense'. I firstly criticize the reading of the Postscript's 'revocation' which leads Conant to this conclusion. Next, I aim to show why we shall better understand the revocation's significance if we pay close attention to two factors: the pseudonymous author Johannes Climacus's description of himself as a 'humorist'; and, more importantly, what the (...)

    Nietzsche and the Divine.Jim Urpeth & John Lippitt - 2000
    'Nietzsche and the Divine' is a provocative, international and interdisciplinary collaboration between scholars of Nietzsche and philosophers of religion. Famous for declaring the 'death of God', Nietzsche was nevertheless responsible throughout his writing for some of the most telling modern meditations on the nature of the religions of the world, on mysticism, and on the relation of humanity to the infinite. This collection deals with the full scope of his thought on this topic, encompassing Greek, Hebraic, Asian, Christian and mystic (...)

    Illusion and Satire in Kierkegaard's Postscript.John Lippitt - 1999 - Continental Philosophy Review 32 (4):451-466.
    This paper investigates Johannes Climacus''s infamous satire against Hegelianism in the Concluding Unscientific Postscript. In considering why Climacus aims to show speculative thought as comical rather than simply mistaken, it is argued that Climacus sees the need for the comic as a vital form of ''indirect communication.'' The thinker who approaches ethical and religious questions in an inappropriately ''objective'' manner is in the grip of an illusion which can only be dispelled by his coming to see his own confusion, and (...)

    Kierkegaard and Moral Philosophy: Some Recent Themes.John Lippitt - 2013 - In John Lippitt & George Pattison (eds.), The Oxford Handbook of Kierkegaard. Oxford University Press.
    This chapter examines the ideas of Soren Kierkegaard related to moral philosophy. It analyses Kierkegaard's connection to narrative-based views of practical identity and discusses his account of forgiveness, which is considered as his contribution to moral psychology. The chapter also identifies the links between the ideas of Kierkegaard and those of recent moral philosophers including Charles Taylor, Iris Murdoch, Harry Frankfurt, and Alasdair MacIntyre.
