Possibility and Negation, Freedom and Finiteness. Kierkegaard and the Influence of the Latest Schelling

Risultato della ricerca: Contributo in libroChapter

Abstract

How can be possible a scientific discourse on Actuality, if the glance of philosophy is condemned to petrify the perpetual and non-inferable movement of Becoming into the unmoving necessity of the logical concept? How to escape the Hegelian “negative philosophy” in order to reach the true reality without renouncing to a scientific discourse? After the aesthetical production till 1843—in which Kierkegaard makes an attempt of describing the Actuality by following a series of characters who live within the realm of Possibility—we find a straight philosophical reasoning on the relation between Being and Thought in Concept of Anxiety and Philosophical Fragments. Here it is possible to find the traces of Schelling’s “positive philosophy”, whereas the concept of Possibility does not emerge from the pure Nothing of the Hegelian’s logical triad, but it is just a relative and unpredictable one, according to the distinction between m¾ Ôn and oÙk Ôn that Schelling takes from Plato’s Sofist. The Becoming is indeed a change that not concern the essence, but right Being. The Not-Being that the Becoming abandons, cannot be a pure Nothing, but has to exist, otherwise one could not talk about a change. That Being that nevertheless is a not-being is Possibility, and its movement is based on Freedom.
