If the Enlightenment turned to reason to reoccupy the place left vacant by the death of God, the last two centuries have undermined such faith in reason. We cannot escape this history. The specter of nihilism haunts Either/Or. To exorcize it is Kierkegaards most fundamental concern. But where are we to turn? To an aesthetic transfiguration of, or escape from reality?
