Kierkegaard Study

Questions for pondering on ‘Fear and Trembling’:

Are ethics universal?

Is the story of Abraham and Isaac a suspension of the universal?

Is God’s command to Abraham ethical?

If it’s not ethical, could God have still issued the command? (Kant)

Was the command a test of faith? If so, why?

Would Abraham have been right to disobey/refuse?
