Example text

Kirmmse Kierkegaard in Golden Age Denmark, op. , pp. 213ff. Introduction 15 due to the fact that his own elder brother, Peter Christian, was himself a Grundtvigian. The article featured here examines Grundtvig’s complex relation to romanticism through many stages of his life. In the first part of this essay, the sources of Grundtvig’s romanticism are examined with special emphasis on the German Romantics such as Schiller, Fichte and Schelling. In the second half, points of comparison and contrast are discussed between Grundtvig’s works and the main ideas and motifs of romanticism.

The latter is what underlies the special relation of the all-constitutive to the temporal and needs further elaboration. 77 78 79 80 81 SC, p. 5. SC, p. 6. SC, p. 2. SC, p. 4. SC, p. 4. 38 Poul Lübcke B. The Concepts of Time and Eternity If we are to understand Sibbern’s mention of the all-constitutive as being both eternal and necessarily appearing in time, it is important to understand that, for Sibbern, eternity is not synonymous with atemporality, but applies to a particular mode of temporal relationship;82 that the all-constitutive is eternal does not then necessarily mean that it is atemporal, but that it is not created in time.

That is why Sibbern is able to reinterpret the Christian idea of the world as being created out of “nothing”; to Sibbern this does not mean that the world was created at a certain time before which there was nothing. e. not something that occurs at a certain point in time. e. the manifold of finite beings or facts) is dependent upon the all-constitutive (the infinite), without whose constant renewing constitution its existence would be jeopardized. That the world is created out of nothing means that the all-constitutive (the infinite) is not itself a fact but that which makes all facts (finite beings) possible.
