It is also what prevents us from simply asserting the a priori desirability of change and novelty. The singular individual is not there simply to be erased by history’s progressive tide. This might appear to be a thin account of the paradox for those expecting a Christological focus. However, the approach taken here will be to resist prejudging the paradox in terms of any established Christological definition. Rather than allowing a dogmatic position to dictate the terms of our enquiry, we need to understand how the paradox works across a general field of individuality and communication and then see how this affects and transmutes what Christ is and does.

By examining alternative ways of configuring a paradoxical relationship to existence, especially from Either/Or, I propose that the hatred of an Elvira or the heaven-defying solidarity of Antigone offer a viable, radically anti-transcendent faith that has no Christological focus. I confirm this through critiquing inferior Christianized figures of submissive womanhood/nature in Kierkegaard’s discourses and call for a reevaluation of the demonic. Chapter 6 takes up that reevaluation in small part, by examining material from the upbuilding discourses on the “thorn in the flesh” and its description as an angel of Satan.

Within the bounds of practical reason, we posit religious ideals to infinitize the moral demand upon us. A paradoxical effect of limitation is—in one carefully defined sense—to defy, or at least render inoperative, the limits of morality and finitude. Morality is not a matter of calculation, of “this far, and no further,” but an exercise of the boundless moral will, which no merely objective reality can determine. The limit here is never one; the limit of reason folds back upon itself and becomes a line running through reason itself, determining its legitimate and illegitimate uses as belonging to two different domains.
