Origeneity and recognisability on Kierkegaard's ontology
Ebook format Pdf readable on these devices:
The purpose of this paper is to illuminate the somewhat neglected role of origineity (Oprindelighed) in Kierkegaard’s writings. It traces the use Kierkegaard makes of this term and its relation to ontology in general and to anthropology specifically. The enquiry points out that the proper relationship to origineity is what Kierkegaard calls repetition, reduplication or in several instances «the second time». Characteristic for these concepts is that they mark a change in ontological status of entities. Without this change entities have no genuine being. The analysis shows also that Kierkegaard attributes this lack of genuine being to the loss of peculiarity (Eiendommelighed) which makes entities irrecognisable. Moreover, it is shown that Kierkegaard rejects the idea that entities are defined in terms of distinctiveness. Rather, as Kierkegaard holds, they are defined in relation to their origineity.
