Voices Crying in the Wilderness: The Calls to Faith in Kierkegaard and Nietzsche
This paper will analyze and critically evaluate the elements of the conflicting and competing faiths to which Kierkegaard and Nietzsche called their readers, which were based on radically differing theistic and anthropological judgments. Based on the Kierkegaard’s three-fold conception of aesthetic, ethical, and religious faith, I will argue that his call to radical faith (which is based on his existential philosophy of human nature) triumphs over Nietzsche’s. My critique of Nietsche will be based largely on inherently weak and immature faith in human nature.
