Studenteropgave: Basisprojekt


In our project we seek to map the great discussion about the good and meaningful life in the perspective of Søren Kierkegaard, K. E. Løgstrup, Albert Camus, Svend Brinkmann and Erik Bendtsen. The project has evolved from a general interest and curiosity about values and how they contribute to the conception of a good or meaningful life. This general interest originates from the hype about danish psychologist and author Svend Brinkmann and his latest book Ståsteder published august 2016. Through our work with the specified philosophers and Svend Brinkmann, our results show that the reflective self, is in fact not a value, rather a condition in the creation of values and our innate capability to reflect upon set values. Furthermore values exist in a constant intertwined relationship, values in between, and has no significance if not in relation to man. Values constitute a good or meaningful life, where responsibility and freedom play a central role. Brinkmann’s use of the philosophers theories causes an incomplete understanding of his selected values, standpoints, in order to justify the term he uses to describe phenomenons that have inherent value it itself. This term is by our ascertained knowledge of values, a term, that leads to confusion rather than clarification.
