Existential Dimensions in Kierkegaard’s Perception of Self

[In English]

We might think that the self’s structure and its delineation should always be essentially one and the same, while the content is expected to be the changing ingredient. We think only the selfcontent is expected to change through “stages on life’s way.” But in Kierkegaard’s philosophy, along with its content, the very formation  of the self changes. In this paper I elaborate on Kierkegaard’s early view of the self’s structure. I then emphasize the dramatic change we !nd in Sickness unto Death, where the self is changed in both structure and content.
