The “re-writing of the Sacred [Hi]-Story” in Kierkegaard’s Philosophical Fragments

Risultato della ricerca: Contributo in rivistaArticolo in rivista


God’s incarnation is both a historical fact and a doctrine: in Johannes Climacus/Kierkegaard’s view, the fault of the so-called «objective view» – the Hegelian – is to have neutralized the «Living Word» of Christianity. A historical truth is useless in order to establish the truth of Christian religion (Lessing); it is useless if the Subject is not «infinitely interested» in such a truth. A possible way to regain the single individual’s authentic infinite interest in Christianity is to re-tell its history as a story; i.e., a narrative approach to the communication of the «Living Word». The past as «fiction of the present» (De Certeau) might be able to maintain the relationship between «lived meaning» and «designated fact» to repeat the miracle of salvation in the present.
