## Do Kierkegaard and Nietzsche have similar ideas about being and becoming?

3

I have not read much of Kierkegaard's philosophy, but this quote comes in mind when comparing his philosophy to Nietzsche's in terms of being and becoming:

“To be human, is not a fact, but a task.” -Kierkegaard

Thinking about this quote in relation to Nietzsche's notion of Being vs. Becoming, are there similarities between the two on this issue?

1can you draw similarities between the two? sure, absolutely you can. It'd be easier to answer the question if it were narrower in scope. – virmaior – 2018-12-03T04:38:39.880

I specifically asked about this quote and Nietzsche's Being and Becoming. I'm not asking overall what the similarities between them are. – wa7d – 2018-12-03T05:01:50.450

I've taken the liberty of editing your question based on your comment. Feel free to edit further if I've misunderstood you. – virmaior – 2018-12-03T05:04:51.927

I thought that insofar both can be labelled as "existentialist" philosophers, this trivially is the case since it is kind of the core idea of existentialism? – Philip Klöcking – 2018-12-03T10:36:27.883

See Relation to Søren Kierkegaard for influence of K on Nietzsche.

1N's concept of becoming is due mainly to his knowledge of ancient Greek philosophy. See Robin Small, Being, Becoming, and Time in Nietzsche, into Ken Gemes & John Richardson (editors), The Oxford Handbook of Nietzsche , Oxford University Press (2013) – Mauro ALLEGRANZA – 2018-12-03T13:28:56.177

See the post : Did Nietzsche read Kierkegaard ? mas well as : James Kellenberger, Kierkegaard and Nietzsche.
