The Trampoline’s Reply

I have posted a new translation on the ‘resources‘ page, done with Kees van Kooten Niekerk, of an article by Løgstrup from 1980: ‘The Trampoline’s Reply’. This is a response to a book by Johannes Sløk, who was Løgstrup’s younger contemporary, which was critical of Løgstrup’s position but which didn’t mention him by name – the polemical tone of which Løgstrup said made him feel that he was being bounced up and down on like a trampoline, hence the article’s title. Although relatively short and rather polemical in style – as a response to Sløk’s own polemic – the article nonetheless addresses some interesting critical issues concerning Løgstrup’s views, including the challenge that if sovereign expressions of life are really sovereign, can they have an historical origin and can they be overcome.
