Jensen translation

I have posted a new translation on the resources page, of an important article by Ole Jensen (who is also co-translator on the article). Jensen raises a significant critique of Løgstrup, namely his lack of clarity concerning the fulfillability or otherwise of the sovereign expressions of life. Jensen argues that Løgstrup moved from his claims about the unfulfillability of the ethical demand to sometimes suggesting that the sovereign expressions of life were unfulfillable also – but sometimes not. Jensen diagnoses the source of Løgstrup’s lack of clarity on this issue – which Løgstrup himself conceded in his response to Jensen in Opgør med Kierkegaard, where he now made clear that ‘the sovereign expression of life is indeed realised, but spontaneously, without being demanded’.
