Re: [Kierkegaardians] new to S. K. group too
- Good to hear from you -- could you give us a preferred name so I could
address you directly?
Anyway, in my opinion, the issues you address (consciousness informed
by science) begin with Locke in the 17thC and are very much in full
swing by Kierkegaard's day, and that K was a respondent to these
issues. Makes him very much our contemporary in my opinion, even
though he died over 100 years ago.

- Don -- I'll visit the group page and try to hunt down previous
responses that I thought addressed your concerns. I receive/respond
to this list via email rather than the group page, so it's unnatural
for me to include references to post numbers.
