Writing lower than the pseudonym of Johannes de silentio, Kierkegaard makes use of the shape of a dialectical lyric to provide his notion of religion. Abraham is portrayed as an excellent guy, who selected to sacrifice his son, Isaac, within the face of conflicting expectancies and in defiance of any achieveable moral general. The notorious and debatable 'teleological suspension of the ethical' challenged the modern perspectives of Hegel's common ethical method, and the soreness person needs to by myself make a selection 'on the energy of the absurd'. Kierkegaard's writings have encouraged either sleek Protestant theology and existentialism.

Example text

In the “shapes” of “Consciousness”, “Self-consciousness”, “Reason” and “Spirit” religion appears as an aspect of them. However, in the aforesaid “shapes” humans fail to grasp the “truth” implicit in their conception of the “absolute Being”, to wit, that the latter is their reflection on themselves (“the self-consciousness of Spirit”) (PhG: 473, PhS: 410). Religion, as self-conscious spirit, appears after the above “shapes” “have run their full course” (PhG: 476, PhS: 413). Nevertheless, religion too, initially appears in its “immediacy” and in its as yet undeveloped form.

11 11 Many years ago I discussed this issue with Kimberly Hutchings, to whom I am grateful for an exciting discussion. I have benefited immensely from this exchange. Hegel's Phenomenology and Foucault's Genealogy 36 I now turn to a consideration of what type of history genealogy is and how it differs from traditional history. Foucault says that genealogy is an “effective history” (“wirkliche Historie”). What are the main features of “effective history”? Firstly, “effective history” puts everything into motion; that is, it relativizes all ideals of truth, firmness and solidity.

A traditional historical analysis of the ‘purpose’ of social and political institutions cannot unearth their “Entstehung” because “The successes of history belong to those who are capable of seizing these rules, to replace those who had used them, to disguise themselves so as to pervert them, invert their meaning, and redirect them against those who had initially imposed them” (Foucault 1984: 86). Genealogy shows, therefore, that interpretations are dependent on specific configurations of power.
