abstract = "Focusing mainly on Christian Discourses and the discourse “At a Graveside,”this paper seeks to unfold and discuss the various ways of dying depictedby Kierkegaard. By engaging Maurice Blanchot’s conception of a “double death,”I will argue that different relations to death are attributed to the pagan and to thebeliever. Special attention is drawn to the divergent temporalities that apparentlydefine the possibilities and impossibilities of dying. This approach also involvesan investigation of the “dispersion” and the “contemporaneity” pertaining to thedying pagan and the dying believer, respectively.“Numquam enim erit homini peius in morte, quam ubi erit mors ipsa sine morte.”¹“Wiederholung ist nur in Gestalt der Treue nicht Endlosigkeit, sondern Erf{\"u}llung.”²1.
