(This program continues for multiple sessions)
Thursdays, June 13 – July 25 (class will not meet July 4)

6 – 7:30 pm

Led by Kevin Robbins

Kierkegaard’s Fear and Trembling is a profound meditation on the relationships among faith, reason, and ethics. The work invites its readers to grapple with some of the most perplexing questions of human existence. Through a close reading of the text, as well as background material that illuminates Kierkegaard’s philosophical project, we will explore the work’s provocative answers to these questions and consider its criticisms of the modern philosophical tradition.

Kevin Robbins is a Ph.D. candidate in philosophy at the University of Notre Dame.
