Comunicazione d'esistenza e paradigma biblico in Soren Kierkegaard
Ebook format Pdf readable on these devices:
As a religious thinker Kierkegaard explores the possibility to communicate the paradoxical truth of Christian faith. The aim of this article is to show that the Bible has considerably influenced Kierkegaard’s communicative strategy. In For selfexamination (1851) Kierkegaard considers some biblical episodes in which the sacred authors conceive communication as a strategy to involve the reader into the holy history, so that the latter can take fully responsibility of his own existence before God. Furthermore, the biblical narrations of Abram and Job, paraphrased by Kierkegaard, can be interpreted as exercises of communication of existence, in which the single one communicates the paradox of his own condition by assuming an indirect way of communication in order to transmit what otherwise would be nullified by a direct expression; while the receiver makes experience of the paradoxical truth by reading and reading again the story but without ever fully understanding its meaning.
