„Unhappy consciousness“ in Kierkegaard’s The Seducer’s Diary

(Original title: „Nešťastné vedomie“ v Kierkegaardovom Zvodcovom denníku)
Filozofia, 69 (2014), 5, 409-415.
Type of work: Papers
Publication language: Slovak

The article tries to show the role and importance of Kierkegaard’s writing The Seducer’s Diary in the frame of his fundamental work Either/Or. What is under scrutiny is not only the dilemma between aesthetical and ethical consciousness, but also the “unhappy consciousness”. The latter has in Kierkegaard – contrary to Hegel’s definition of this concept – strong existential connotations.
