Sample text

Kierkegaard’s idealization of love for a dead person thus is to be considered a symbol for the loss of the actual fellow human being in modern society. The neighbor denotes a social void within human society. He functions as a figure manifesting the ostracized, outcast and negated aspects of humanity in society. In this sense, the real presence of the neighbor is no longer comprehensible within the symbolic orders of the social. Here, unlike in Kierkegaard’s theological interpretation, the figure of the neighbor does not show the new humanity in tension with the reality of sinful human existence.

They play with the manifold modes and forms of their visibility for others and yet also remain invisible in them, insofar as they are not completely absorbed into any intersubjective relationship. At all times, their social presence also contains forms of their absence through which they hide from the gaze of others and elude the appropriation of their presence. This interplay of presence and absence is constitutive of the phenomenal concreteness of human beings in the social lifeworld. Therefore, it also represents a yardstick and a frame of reference for the scientific description of human beings.
