1. Kierkegaard is sometimes called a “Christian existentialist.” In what ways is his
philosophy consistent/compatible with Christian doctrine and ideology? In what
ways is it in conflict/incompatible with Christianity? Is it appropriate to call him a
Christian existentialist and why.
2. What is meant by Kierkegaard's "leap of faith"? Critically evaluate this notion
from the point of view of Nietzsche's philosophy. Would you agree with or
endorse this critique? Why or why not?
