Chapter 7 explores the thought of the Danish philosopher and writer Søren Kierkegaard. It gives a close reading of the chapter “The Unhappiest One” from the first part of Either/Or. Kierkegaard brings up Hegel’s idea of the unhappy consciousness for comparison, thus signaling the importance of the concept of religious alienation. A discussion is also given of Kierkegaard’s critical assessment of his own age in his work A Literary Review of Two Ages, which was published on the eve of the Revolutions of 1848. Finally there is an analysis of Kierkegaard’s account of the nature of the alienated human being in The Sickness unto Death. An overview is given of his system of the forms of despair of which humans are victims. The chapter concludes with a comparison of the concept of alienation in Kierkegaard and Hegel.
