In Kierkegaard’s Instant, David J. Kangas reads Kierkegaard to reveal hisradical thinking about temporality. For Kierkegaard, the instant of becoming, in which everythingchanges in the blink of an eye, eludes recollection and anticipation. It constitutes a beginningalways already at work. As Kangas shows, Kierkegaard’s retrieval of the sudden quality oftemporality allows him to stage a deep critique of the idealist projects of Fichte, Schelling, andHegel. By linking Kierkegaard’s thought to the tradition of Meister Eckhart, Kangas formulatesthe central problem of these early texts and puts them into contemporary light—can thinkinghold itself open to the challenges of temporality?
