INSPIRATORS

 

 

Søren Aabye Kierkegaard

Much of his philosophical work deals with the issues of how one lives, focusing on the priority of concrete human reality over abstract thinking and highlighting the importance of personal choice and commitment. His theological work focuses on Christian ethics, institution of the Church, and on the difference between purely objective proofs of Christia-nity and a subjective relation-ship to Jesus Christ, the God-Man, which comes from faith. His psychological works explore the emotions and feelings of individuals when faced with life choices. His thinking was influenced by Socrates and the Socratic method.
