Kierkegaard’s Concept of the Self (and the Debt of Heidegger and Sartre)

Kierkegaard’s complex account of how a human self is forged creates an ontology full of existential and phenomenological possibilities. I will explain Kierkegaard’s notion of selfhood, and examine his claim that a self is created through a passionate commitment to a vocation (and how this constitutes the ‘life of faith.’) Heidegger and Sartre owe much to this conceptual scheme, and I will explore some of the ways in which Kierkegaard remains a lively presence in their work.
