This is a classic of philosophy. Kierkegaard said not to read just one section of this book. But, that's what i did..lol.. The concept behind the whole book i've got though, so its okay. His idea is that there are two different ways of living your life, ascetically or morally according to the laws of whatever..religion, etc., and aesthetically or in the pursuit of beauty and pleasure for your own artistic reasons. Kierkegaard never really tells which one is best and that is for the reader to decide..maybe..perhaps he is saying that some blend of the two is ideal, and that to pursue either approach exlusively is wrong. That's what i believe. Regardless, I read this for the aesthetic parts, and his Seducers diary especially is a fascinating work on its own. I love the thoughts and characterization of Johannes, they are as you might expect, beautiful. ( )

Amico mio! Quello che ti ho già detto tante volte, te lo ripeto, anzi te lo grido: o questo o quello, aut-aut! L'importanza dell'argomento giustifica l'uso delle parole.
