I can imagine him able to bring a girl to the point where he was sure she would sacrifice all then he would leave without a word let a lone a declaration a promise. The unhappy girl would retain the consciousness of it with double bitterness because there was not the slightest thing she could appeal to.
She could only be constantly tossed about in a terrible witches’ dance at one uh reproaching herself forgiving him at another reproaching him and then since the relationship would only have been actual in a figurative sense she would constantly have to contend with the doubt that the whole thing might only have been an imagination.

Aug 23, Khashayar Mohammadi rated kiefkegaard really liked it Shelves: I first read this book right after “Fear and Trembling”; and having just diariio such a complex and dense philosophical book, I did not comprehend the point of “The Seducer’s Diary”, and how it fitted in Kierkegaard’s philosophical world.
Kierkegaard is a writer with tremendous philosophical density, and every work of his must be read carefully, and preferably more than once.

This short work is obviously easy to read because Kierkegaard’s style, although a bit antiquated, is very enticing. But this work is also difficult to read without outrage. Quel type tordu, ce Kierkegaard!
What I find especially interesting is that this short piece is essential to his work since eventually Regine the fictional Cordelia became his muse. Which is to say that he the fictional Johannes was afraid of life since he could not live with the real woman and preferred living with the idea of her in his mind. Pretty sad and unhealthy, but so very common. To me they have kept a certain humanism, which I believe might be the result of their living through WWII, an experience that forced them to make a choice, and what they chose was to be politically engaged.
To me this is essential and healthy since locking oneself in one’s intellect implies that one refuses to live.

It can be argued kierkfgaard no other single woman has been so instrumental in a major philosopher’s development as Regine was to Kierkegaard. In some ways, it is difficult to understand Kierkegaard fully without at least a cursory knowledge of his failed relationship to Regine. You need a bit of context to understand The Seducer’s Diary: Kierkegaard wrote it shortly after breaking off his engagement to Regine Olsen, having given up the relationship to pursue what he saw diafio his spiritual calling, and it’s universally regarded as his attempt to sseduttore this event for the heartbroken Olsen, portraying what happened between them as a calculated seduction on his part.
One might question whether this would really make things easier for the rejected party! To this end, Kierkegaard casts himself as the manipulative narrator, Johannes, while the Regine character is named Cordelia. Johannes is essentially a professional seducer who pursues women only to seduttors point that they are ready to give everything to uh then he abandons them, seeing them as tainted, and moves on to his next target.
His pursuit of Cordelia is a meticulously planned game of cat-and-mouse in which he seeks to exploit every aspect of her character, claiming his love for her is pure – in fact, the purest – while his behaviour remains consistently heartless and self-serving.
Johannes is so Machiavellian that he almost seems to have comical, pantomime-villain qualities – you can just imagine him twirling his moustache – and without any knowledge of the real-life events that led to Kierkegaard writing this story, he’d just seem like a singularly awful protagonist.
With that knowledge, though, the whole thing becomes tragically ironic, and the narrator’s frequent references to past conquests go from comically obnoxious to desperately sad especially since Kierkegaard is believed to have remained celibate for the rest of his life. And it does, but at the same time I think it’s obvious it is a component of something bigger, particularly at the end when it seems to come to rather an abrupt halt.

Solal spends about 30 pages describing in great detail to Ariane all the psychological tricks he uses when he goes about performing a seduction, complaining that women are dumb enough to fall ub it, and indeed require this kind of treatment.
He is ostensibly doing it to repulse her, but in fact his explanation is very seductive, and indeed works brilliantly. I get the impression that Kierkegaard was I was reminded of this book when I got to the big seduction scene in Cohen’s Belle du Seigneur. Kierkegaare get the impression that Kierkegaard was doing pretty much the same thing with Regine, the girl he was keen on, though in real life the effect seems to have been the opposite; they broke up, and never got back together again.
Maybe he was doing her a favor, since the couple in Cohen’s novel don’t exactly have a happy life together.

It’s not clear to me whether Cohen is explicitly referring to Kierkegaard, but I think that there are too many parallels for it to kierkegazrd a coincidence.
Basically, Lodge thinks that Kierkegaard was a complete asshole, and should just have had more sense. It’s interesting to see what different takes Cohen and Lodge have on this affair.
I don’t think we should take this too seriously, however – the character presenting the argument was pretty drunk at the time. View all 18 comments. Soren Kierkegaard is regarded as one of the first, if not the very first, existentialist philosophers. It is also one of the 20 books in the Penguin Great Loves collection. This is a book made up of diary entries and letters. Johannes, the writer, boasts of his skills in the art of seducing women. He talks of his abilities to keep a distance while a Reason for reading: He talks of his abilities to keep a distance while all the time luring them in.
His diary covers his pursuit of the innocent young Cordelia, even to the point of engagement. He betrays his friend Edvard, who is genuinely in love with her, for the sake of his own sport. But just as Cordelia is ready to give herself completely she begins to understand what has happened.
My letters do not fail of their purpose. They are developing her mentally, if not erotically. For that I have to use notes. The more prominent the erotic becomes, the shorter the notes will be, but all the more certain to grasp the erotic point. Nevertheless in order not to make her sentimental or soft, irony stiffens her feelings again, but also gives her appetite for the nourishment most dear to her.
The notes give distant and vague hints of the highest. The moment this presentiment begins to dawn in her soul, the relationship fractures. At least it was short. And the format was, in theory, a good one. None of the characters were the slightest bit appealing. I love Denmark, but this work made the country seem dull.
Unless someone comes up with a very convincing argument to the contrary, that is the first and last piece of Kierkegaard’s work I shall be reading.

It is a book of opposites, of painful ironies. I feel ashamed to say that I have been a seducer. It has felt normal to me, and I wondered and still wonder if it ikerkegaard not singularly a paradigm of romantic normalcy – is love a myth? Is ever Kierkegaard’s The Seducer’s Diary describes a man Johannes ‘s calculated scheme to seduce a young girl Cordelia into falling in love with him.
Is everything wonderful in love simply the gestures of seduction, the play, the production? I am still not sure, myself.
