Kierkegaard & Natural Religion, William Stewart May 1988

Kierkegaard & Natural Religion, William Stewart

Masters Theses & Specialist Projects

According to Kierkegaard, the knowledge of God begins with the recognition of various truths about oneself. Every individual, just by virtue of being human, has the capacity to develop an intuitive awareness of God. In this thesis, I explore the nature of this knowledge.
