Abstract

The aim of this paper is to explore the theoretical and philosophical connection between trauma reaction and Søren Kierkegaard's concept of self. This philosophical exploration into Kierkegaard's ideas will include a case evaluation. Using a fictitious case study from the unfortunately real event of the Marchioness disaster, this paper examines how Kierkegaard's concept of self can help to conceptualize trauma reaction via immediate man and despair. This paper will also address further areas for development within Kierkegaard's theory as related to this specific case.
