Abstract: This thesis is a close textual analysis of Soren Kierkegaard's text Fear and Trembling, wherein the pseudonymous author, Johannes de Silentio, investigates the ethical implications of faith as presented in the traditional story of Abraham. This essay explores 1) the existential responsibility of the reader as illustrated in her subjective relation to the text and 2) the dissolution of generalities and universal norms in light of the individual's relation to faith. Examining the singular instances in which de Silentio illustrates faith, as found in the section entitled 'Preliminary Expectoration,' this essay offem an analysis of the implications and contributing thought structures which inform the knight of faith as brought forth through the metaphor of movemem. Particular care is given to the term 'the absurd,' and the role it plays in de Silentio's singular account of faith.
