BENAVIDES, Cristian Eduardo. The infinite possibility of being able to: Schelling's influence on the kierkegaardian conception of freedom. discus.filos [online]. 2016, vol.17, n.29, pp.133-147. ISSN 0124-6127.

The aim of this article is to show the decisive influence of Friedrich Schelling's thought in Søren Kierkegaard's existential reflection. First, the historical context in which the German philosopher goes back to teaching and the impact that his lessons about Philosophie der Offenbarung produce in the young Kierkegaard, are described. Subsequently, the main theses contained in Schelling's Course and the appropriation, reinterpretation and development of them by Kierkegaard in his famous Begrebet Angest are examined. Finally, it is concluded that the infinite possibility of freedom and the distinction between essence and existence, fundamental Kierkegaardian principles, are Schelling's proposals that become a unique intuition in the Danish thinker.
