Example text

Peter P. Rohde 25 Mynster/Martensen—or the Clash with the Church The event which set things in train was the death of Bishop Mynster. Mynster had been Bishop of Zealand and Primate of the Church of Denmark for twenty years. He had been a great influence on old Mi­ chael Pedersen Kierkegaard, and partly in deference to his father the son had continued to respect the great prelate. Mynster was, first and foremost, a man of wide culture and a man of the world. There is no reason to doubt his personal piety, but it was inseparable from his general culture, which drew its strength as much from the Classics and Goethe as from the Gospels.

The existence of the thinker is different modally Louis Mackey 37 from the realm of essence in which the pure ego has its being. Formal logic differs modally from the existence of the thinking subject. The subject's thinking differs modally from essential being. And the in­ dividual's activity of thinking differs from his existence, if only be­ cause-it is one of many activities of the same subject. Suppose that now the proposal is made to reconcile the disparity of thought and being by an act of mediation.

As spatial and temporal, actuality is differentiated into a plurality of particularities, as opposed to the universality of every essence. The change of becoming, by which actualities come to be, is con­ tingent. ' Whatever exists necessarily cannot come into being. If it is necessary, it "already" is, there is no "time" at which it is not. Necessary being cannot suffer change.
