Queering Kierkegaard: Sin, Sex and Critical Theory

Download Edit this record How to cite View on PhilPapers
Abstract
There is an uncanny agreement between the queer rejection of marriage, which resists affirming the legal recognition of same-sex relationships on the grounds that it codifies and normalizes non-heterosexual desire, and the religious objections to gay rights in North America, which oppose legal recognition on the grounds that it compromises the meaning of marriage and family. This article examines the relevance of Kierkegaard’s religious existentialism for the broader queer project of undermining the “normal” and moving beyond identity politics. It offers a religious corrective of heteronormative versions of Christianity, exploring Kierkegaard's import for queer and critical theory.
