Kierkegaard's philosophical fragments: a clarification

Harrison, V.S. (1997) Kierkegaard's philosophical fragments: a clarification. Religious Studies, 33(4), pp. 445-472.

Full text not currently available from Enlighten.


The article proposes that the hypothetical framework of Kierkegaard’s Philosophical Fragments is determined by the question ‘How is it possible for one to become a disciple?’ An account of this framework is provided by employing an original interpretation of the concept ‘the Moment’. This enables an understanding of ‘the condition’ by means of a contrast between ‘Universalist’ and ‘Particularist’ perspectives. Moreover, it is only when the insights offered by both perspectives are combined that the answer to the determining question of the Fragments becomes apparent.
