This chapter examines various interpretations of Søren Kierkegaard's thesis that states that ‘subjectivity is the truth’. It reviews literature on Kierkegaard's theory of truth and discusses the scope and purpose of his concept of truth and the basic principle of his position. It analyses Kierkegaard's concept of subjectivity and objectivity and contends that his theory of truth was developed not on the basis of identity, but based on the existential division of thought and being.

Keywords: Søren Kierkegaard; truth; subjectivity; objectivity; thought; being
