|Title:||Understanding/Comprehension||Contributor(s):||Brake, Matthew (author); McDonald, William (author)||Publication Date:||2015||Handle Link:||https://hdl.handle.net/1959.11/17876||Abstract:||(Forstaaelse - noun; Forstand - noun; forstaae - verb). The word 'Forstaaelse' is derived from the Old Danish 'forstande', which is borrowed from the Middle Low German 'vorstan', from the Old Saxon 'farstandan'. It is cognate with the English word "understanding," which was originally the act of standing under something in order to observe it. By extension, it is the act, relation or condition of comprehending the meaning of a thing, like a book or natural phenomenon. It can also have the connotation of sympathizing with a person, or harmonizing, as between different political entities.||Publication Type:||Book Chapter||Source of Publication:||Kierkegaard's Concepts - Tome VI: Salvation to Writing, p. 209-214||Publisher:||Ashgate Publishing Limited||Place of Publication:||Farnham, United Kingdom||ISBN:||9781472461797||Field of Research (FOR):||220315 Philosophy of Religion||HERDC Category Description:||B1 Chapter in a Scholarly Book||Other Links:||http://trove.nla.gov.au/version/213311494||Series Name:||Kierkegaard Research: Sources, Reception and Resources||Series Number :||15||Statistics to Oct 2018:||Visitors: 265
