The Sickness Unto Death (1849)

After having presented two psychological experiments and one theological thesis with a psychological perspective, Kierkegaard returned to the latter form four years after Stages with The Sickness Unto Death (Kierkegaard, 1980b). The subtitle to this work, “A Christian Psychological Exposition for Upbuilding and Awakening,” indicates that Kierkegaard was again aiming at concentrating on theological aspects.
