Things to take into account(ALL THESE QUESTIONS DO NOT NEED TO BE ANWERED):describe the movement of the narrator’s (Johannes de Silentio) reflection on the sacrifice of Isaac. What is the ethical expression of the story of Abraham and Isaac and what is the religious expression of the story? What does Johannes mean when he says in the Preface that everyone “in philosophy is unwilling to stop with doubting everything but wants to go further”? What is the relevance of the reference to Descartes’ radical doubt, and what does the narrator mean when saying that he “has not understood the System, whether there is one, whether it is completed”? How does the narrator approach the story of Abraham in the four parts of the Exordium? What point is the narrator trying to make by psychologizing Abraham’s experience? What is the purport of the distinction between the external world and the world of the spirit with which the Preliminary Expectoration opens? What does the narrator wants us to focus on and think about by drawing the reader into the context of a sermon on Abraham’s deed and the reception of this sermon by an ordinary believer? Who is the Knight of Infinite Resignation and how does he differ from the Knight of Faith? What is the double movement of faith? (In this connection, the key is to describe the difference between the Knight of Infinite Resignation’s and the Knight of Faith’s relation with respect to the infinite and the finite. In other words, what does each one believe will receive in and through the sacrifice? Why is Johannes saying that Abraham believes in virtue of the absurd that he will receive Isaac back?) Comparing and contrasting Abraham with tragic heros such as Agamemnon, Jephthah, and Brutus, what makes Abraham unique? How does Abraham relate to the ethical universal and what is meant by the expression teleological suspension of the ethical? Is there an absolute duty to God, and how ought we to think about such a duty in relation to the ethical universal? What is it that God can and cannot command Abraham to do? Finally, how do we defend (or justify) Abraham’s concealment from Sarah and Eliezar, and what is the story about the merman and Agnes intended to teach us about the paradox of faith?
