This chapter examines Soren Kierkegaard's relation to postmodernism, evaluating whether he was a relativising postmodernist rather than the father of existentialism. It discuses Gilles Deleuze's treatment of Kierkegaard in his Difference and Repetition and Jean-Paul Sartre's assertion in his Kierkegaard: The Singular Universal that Kierkegaard's impact should not be reduced to general truths described in his thought and that his importance lies in his withdrawal from such structures of comprehension.
