Kierkegaard Project Seminar: Darío González


In his 1968 treatise Difference and Repetition, Gilles Deleuze famously mentions Kierkegaard among the major proponents of a “philosophy of the future”. At the centre of that sort of philosophy lies a certain category – repetition – as well “a Theatre, a
conception of the theatre”. According to this reading, Kierkegaard’s Fear
and Trembling
and Nietzsche’s Thus Spoke Zarathustra represent the
attempt to “dramatize an idea” that, in turn, requires a new understanding of
theatre as such, repetition itself being the key to what Deleuze in different
writings calls a “method of dramatization.” We propose to explore some of the
consequences of this interpretation by drawing attention to Kierkegaard’s own
approach to theatre in Repetition, The Concept of Anxiety and
other works.
