Are some things beyond the limits of thought or human understanding? Are some insights ineffable or inexpressible? Is it self-contradictory to suppose that there are? Our aim in this module is to take up these questions through close readings of Kierkegaard, whose enigmatic works famously entertain such notions as 'the absurd', 'the incomprehensible' and 'the Absolute Paradox'. Our studies will revolve around four texts that Kierkegaard published in 1843 to 1844: Philosophical Fragments, Fear and Trembling, Repetition and The Concept of Anxiety.
