Existential knowledge is practical knowledge. An interpretation of Kierkegaard's assertion of the subjectivity of truth

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

Abstract

Among the most salient features of Kierkegaard's Postscriptum is its distinction between objective and subjective knowledge, and the thesis that ethical and ethico-religious knowledge is subjective. The present article seeks to interpret this distinction in a way that preserves this subjective knowledge as actual knowledge. To reach this goal, emphasis is put on the parallels between Kierkegaard's distinction and Aristotle's distinction between theoretical and practical knowledge.
