Fede e dialettica del peccato
Ebook format Pdf readable on these devices:
This essay analyses some religious categories in Kierkegaard, above all the category of sin as refusal of love (refusal of love for the neighbour). The author thinks that from this event a dialectical-existential process can start, arising between despair as repentance and hope in divine forgiveness. This process can eventually lead to the act of love, which is the positive acceptance of the God’s commandment to love one’s neighbour. This act is the only real expression of faith, the ‘second immediacy’ fuelled by the infinite dialectic of sin. The human love is therefore read as perpetual atonement and springs from the painful balance between despair because of the sin and hope in the divine forgiveness.
