    Much of his philosophical work deals with the issues of how one lives as a "single individual", giving priority to concrete human reality over abstract thinking and highlighting the importance of personal choice and commitment. Including the individual in "the public" or "the crowd" or "the herd" or subsuming a human being as simply a member of a species is a reduction of the true meaning of life for individuals. He has this strange power called chance. Becoming aware of our true self is our true task and endeavor in life—it is an ethical imperative, as well as preparatory to a true religious understanding. Nimble, thinly clad, agile, unarmed, I renounce everything for you.

    Faustus asks "Who made the world? The person who has ethically chosen and found himself possess himself defined in his entire concretion. Only that will which obeys law, is free; for it obeys itself; it is independent and so free. A Freud with religious categories up his sleeves, the lyrical philosopher emphasized that the self is a slice of eternity. Terrible thought, for thus the world comes to a standstill from boredom! Love itself has an ethical and an esthetic element.

    During his time there he was described as "very conservative"; someone who would "honour the King, love the church and respect the police". The sober, trustworthy, historical view of the matter, which recognises no perfect models, is entirely disregarded. The man who did not become Caesar, the applicant refused by medical school, all experience profound disappointment. It is helped in this task by the media and the mass production of products to keep it distracted. Scribe wanted to create a template for all playwrights to follow. I shall not overcome you with principles not with what foolish people call character; no, I will still be your poet!

Soren Kierkegaard and his critics book

Johann Fichte wrote similarly about subjectivity in his book The Vocation of Man. In a world-historical dialectic, individuals fade away into humankind; in a dialectic such as that it is impossible to discover you and me, an individual existing human being, even if new magnifying glasses for the concrete are invented.

Philosophy of Søren Kierkegaard

In very rough terms, subjectivity refers to what is personal to the individual—what makes the individual who he is in distinction from others. As a result, the self becomes hardened against any form of help and "Even if God in heaven and all the angels offered him aid, he would not want it.

In most respects, Climacus did not have problems with science or the scientific endeavor. The question remains, however, why is it that human pathos or passion is the most precious thing?
