Re: [Kierkegaardian] Kierkegaard
- that's quite a serious topic for a highschool research. anyway, from my experience of studying kierkegaard's ideas on suffering and faith.. i believe he does not advocate the idea that one loses faith due to suffering. rather, for kierkegaard suffering leads to faith. it is when a person have been in much suffering and despair that he takes the leap of faith. that man, when facing such infinity, indefiniteness, anxiety, and fear, resort to infinite resignation and leave everything to God in faith.
you know, kierkegaard's existentialism no mater how "melancholic" it tends to be, is very optimistic. i would say it is even those non-theistic existentialists that advocate lose of faith due to suffering. their philosophies conclude that this life is full of suffering and that we have to end it and so they advocate suicide instead of faith.
i dont personally know about the book Night by Eli Wiesel. anyway, i hope somehow this has helped you. keep on learning! good luck!

specific thoughts about what Keirkegaard's ideas were about how
one loses faith due to suffering.
