Let us now turn to Søren Kierkegaard. There are in his writings certain ideas which in one form or another recur in all Existentialist writers, and which are crucial in determining the nature of Existentialist ethics, though these ideas are later developed in ways which would be surprising to Kierkegaard himself, and would certainly have been rejected by him. Most obviously, the development of Sartrean Existentialism, its conversion to Marxism, and its final extinction, would have been repulsive to Kierkegaard. But, all the same, there are seeds of even this development in his own work.
