Abstract: The aim of this project is to trace the movement essential to a modern Judeo-Christian ontology of the human subject--the movement of an inward withdrawal which precedes a deeper engagement with the world. For this, we will take our orientation from similarities between the philosophy of Kierkegaard, that of Heidegger, and the belief system of Quakerism, all of which share this ontology yet offer quite different approaches to it.
