Søren Kierkegaard - founder of existentialist philosophy

"Life can only be understood backwards, but it must be lived forwards."
Søren Kierkegaard


Today is the anniversary of Søren Kierkegaard's birth. He was born May 5, 1813. Mr. Kierkegaard argued that actual life cannot be contained within an abstract conceptual system. He hoped to open the way for an adequate consideration of faith. He argued that there existed a gulf between God and man that faith alone can bridge.
