Rasmussen there could be a few inside deed of religion, a ‘teleological suspension of the ethical’, that may vindicate Abraham’s exterior deed within the absence of any societal justification. That the operative notion of the moral is Hegelian this is transparent while de Silentio writes: If the moral – that's, social morality – is the top and if there's in anyone no residual incommensurability ultimately such that this incommensurability isn't really evil (i. e. , the only person, who's to be expressed within the universal), then no different types are wanted except what Greek philosophy had or what should be deduced from them by way of constant concept. Hegel wouldn't have hid this, for, in the end, he had studied Greek philosophy. z,47 no matter if de Silentio had no longer pointed out Hegel during this connection, his gloss of ‘the moral’ the following with the word ‘social morality’ is the giveaway, because the Danish time period he makes use of ‘det Sædelige’ is such as Hegel’s German time period for ‘ethical life’, specifically ‘Sittlichkeit’, as distinguishable from Kantian ‘Moralit¨at’.
