Brief Discussion
The paper discusses the cases of apparent nonsense in the writings of Kierkegaard and Wittgenstein. Authors such as Cora Diamond and James Conant are critically discussed and the thesis is put forward that only with a detailed examination of the use of paradoxes and apparent nonsense in the writings of Wittgenstein and Keirkegaard their writings in ethics and religion can make sense.
