Introduction to Kierkegaard: The Existential Problem


In this 1st of 2 videos introducing Kierkegaard, we summarize some of his ideas (freedom, anxiety, dread, despair, subjective truth) that led to his title as the “father of existentialism”.

    Wow. Thank you so much.

    I have a different experience of ‘losing’ myself in the Infinite; more like a finding and not as described as getting lost in a multiplicity of choices. More a singularity that is All.

      So you found yourself in the sea of infinite choices but they were all represented in your experience as a singularity?

    I agree with a lot that Kierkegaard had to say and I feel that it sums up my life and a lot of anxiety that I had within it. When I let go and go about my day without thinking about myself so much it is much better, I am marveled by the world around me and appreciate all the beauty and variety there is. When I become too self-obsessed in looking at myself subjectively I seem to have more nervousness, anxiety, negativity, depression, and that feeling of WHAT THE HELL AM I DOING WITH MY LIFE??!?! Thanks Soren :)
