The article sketches four models of the relationship between sensibility and transcendence from a Kierkegaardian perspective. The first model suggests a sheer opposition: sensibility is the absolute opposite of transcendence. According to the second model sensibility and art are a negative expression of the transcendent. In the third model art shows what art cannot express through its own annihilation. In the last model the relation is between transcendence and a perception that is other than ordinary. This model is perhaps the greatest challenge to both art and religion, to both sensibility and transcendence.

Abstract

The article sketches four models of the relationship between sensibility and transcendence from a Kierkegaardian perspective. The first model suggests a sheer opposition: sensibility is the absolute opposite of transcendence. According to the second model sensibility and art are a negative expression of the transcendent. In the third model art shows what art cannot express through its own annihilation. In the last model the relation is between transcendence and a perception that is other than ordinary. This model is perhaps the greatest challenge to both art and religion, to both sensibility and transcendence.
