Essere-tra. Kierkegaard e il luogo dell'esistenza

Translated title of the contribution: [Autom. eng. transl.] Being-between. Kierkegaard is the place of existence

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


The contraposition between the Individual and the Crowd subtends the question of the place of existence. If we accept the polarity, without looking at the life context, we might derive an erroneous impression from it. Just opposed to the Crowd, the Individual does not have synonyms such as being isolated and detached. In order to avoid this misunderstanding, it is decisive to ponder on the place of existence. In a paradoxical way, the courage «of being a man among men», brings Kierkegaard to state that the «real great man, is the real common man». The choice of the individual does not coincide thus with an escape. And the common world of men is not necessarily a place of reprobation. This legitimates as much as a research on the phenomenology of places, and a focalization of the background tension that sustains it; as well as the inextricable relation between place and existence, on which we focus on.
