<WRONG PLACE TO PUT THIS...?^

"More than this however, This story is also a story of his lover Regina, where he imposes his dismissal of his bride to be, Regina, in order to draw close to God, with the story of Abraham giving Isaac up for a human sacrifice, and he mistakingly misses the connection that we do not come close to God by dismissing our "Regina's" but by drawing near to them do we draw near to God."

MOVED THIS HERE; IT'S OBVIOUSLY BY SOMEONE WHO HAS A GOOD HANDLE ON THE SUBJECT MATTER, BUT IS NOT A NATIVE-ENGLISH SPEAKER (AND NOT THAT I'M THE GREATEST, BUT SOMEONE WHO'S A WIKIPEDIA NEWBIE)...NEEDS "TRANSATION"? REFERENCES? PERHAPS IT'S AN ORIGINAL OBSERVATION (WHICH I VALUE, THAT'S WHY I DIDN'T DELETE IT...I GUESS I'M KIND OF A REBEL!)

PERHAPS?: This story is also an allegory for his relationship with Regine Olsen, where he sacrifices his bride to be, Regine, in order to draw closer to God, with the story of Abraham giving Isaac up for a human sacrifice as a model; he mistakingly misses the connection that we do not come closer to God by dismissing our 'Regines', but by drawing near to them do we draw nearer to God.

(In other words, he fell prey to the Idealistic Theism/Nihilism nexus.What a pity that the progenitor of {Existentialism and} Absurdism hoped for 'pie-in-the-sky' instead of living with authenticity, revolt, freedom and passion.)

Replacing entire acticle since it didn't require any research.[edit]

The current page for Fear and Trembling is an exact copy of this page - http://www.websters-online-dictionary.org/definitions/FEAR+AND+TREMBLING?cx=partner-pub-0939450753529744%3Av0qd01-tdlq&cof=FORID%3A9&ie=UTF-8&q=FEAR+AND+TREMBLING&sa=Search#816 So I'm going to replace it.

If you read the linked page all the way through, you will note the declaration "Source: adapted by the editor from Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia; from the article "Fear and Trembling"." Skomorokh 14:17, 12 December 2010 (UTC)
Alright, but my point still stands. It didn't require any effort. User:11614soup--11614soup 16:57, 14 December 2010 (UTC)
May I point you to WP:SOFIXIT? Jarkeld (talk) 16:48, 14 December 2010 (UTC)
I see your point. I withdraw the comment listed above and will just fix it. Would you like me to delete the comments so they are not on this page?User:11614soup--11614soup 16:57, 14 December 2010 (UTC)
No, legitimate talk page comments should be left for archiving. --Saddhiyama (talk) 19:37, 14 December 2010 (UTC)

Article Needs Restructuring[edit]

I don't know enough about Kierkegaard to do it myself, but this article could use major reworking. It contains sentence fragments, grammatical errors, and unclear language throughout and reads like one long essay about Kierkegaard in general. There is a lack of focus on the work Fear and Trembling itself, the title of the article. The introductory paragraph should not contain as much interpretation of the work as it does, and the interpretation/analysis/speculation that follows is difficult to separate from the more purely informational segments.

Yep, most of the article needs to be rewritten. There's way, way too much original research. The article on leap of faith is similarly problematic, and appears to have been written by the same person. 139.218.218.86 (talk) 04:17, 14 October 2015 (UTC)
