Reading Nausea Through Either / Or: An Aesthetic and Ethical Perspective

Download Edit this record How to cite View on PhilPapers
Abstract
Literature, in particular philosophical literature, proves to be particularly challenging when read in isolation from the philosophy it comes from. Reading Sarte’s Nausea through Kierkegaard illuminates important themes of language, music, the ethical and aesthetic, and immediacy in both Nausea and Kierkegaard’s various pseudonymous works. The comparison here is extremely fruitful given the poetic and literary form of Kierkegaard’s work, especially against this particular work from Sartre. The themes in Nausea that are examined are interestingly not present in his other works and are necessary in some regard to be brought forth in a novel rather than a philosophical treatise.
