Anne ou la patience d’être soi selon Kierkegaard

Abstract : According to modern philosophy, thinking is a product of subjectivity, will is self-determination, and time is self-affection . Kierkegaard gives us another meaning for a voluntary life by considering desire that is broken by the will of another man, time, and God. Patience is not for Kierkegaard an accident of character but rather the requirement for becoming a person. This assumes that one put aside any purely psychological understanding of patience. True perseverance is radically opposed to an obsessive existence blinded to the world. There is no common ground between the stoic conception of endurance and Christian patience, such as patience through hope. For Kierkegaard, the patience of love is a form of passivity that is the way of salvation.
