Abstract

[Autom. eng. transl.] In October 1843 Kierkegaard published Constantin Constantius in the name of La repetition, a "bizarre little book" in which he staged one of the most original and deepest concepts of his philosophical reflection, that of "repetition". Not even two months later, the famous poet, literary critic and standard bearer of Danish Hegelism Johan Ludvig Heiberg (1791-1860) writes a review that gives rise to a heated controversial reaction by Kierkegaard. A controversy that however has the strange peculiarity of remaining solitary: the Philosopher in fact writes a long and inflamed response that he decides to keep in the drawer, convinced of the contradictory inherent in wanting to transform into "direct communication" what only indirectly, through irony, can be introduced into reflection. In the unpublished Polemic against Heiberg, presented for the first time in Italian translation, Kierkegaard thus ventures into the rare attempt to explicitly explain himself and his category of repetition in front of contemporaries who have misunderstood it preferring Hegelian mediation.
