2. Whom do you think Kierkegaard identifies most with: the friend who doesn’t want to choose or Williams? Or perhaps both? From my point of view Kierkegaard determines that the friend who can’t choose between pursuing marriage and in the point of either/or getting married or not taking this step will be a decision in which the man will regret. Life is based on big decision and sometimes great decisions that may change the outcome in our current state of life. We would find either/or decisions in life in which we would consider and our moral and ethics will decide one’s path to take and lead.
3 .Compare the second excerpt with Sartre’s theory of the existential choice. The excerpt of Sartre’s which talks about the theory of existentialism and it has some applicability to the excerpt of Either/Or from Kierkegaard. Sartre’s states that we live in a world with the liberty to designate the path that we are going to take. Existentialism actually emphasizes the existence of the individual person as a free and responsible agent determining their own development through acts of the will and it is known to be begun with Kierkegaard, which he makes the point that one’s attitude determines in which direction our path will be taken. People sometimes live without direction and finds themselves stagnated because the fear itself can be misleading and the people think that if the take a path, they would be taking the wrong one and facing the consequences.
