One of Kierkegaard's main objections to Hegel's philosophy is that the nature of religion is misunderstood in its context by being placed on par with various forms of scholarship and knowing. Through his pseudonymous authors, Kierkegaard stubbornly insists that faith is fundamentally different from knowledge. How would Hegel respond to Kierkegaard's objection? The author wishes to argue that Hegel would find Kierkegaard's conception of faith to be a pure formalism with no determinate content. For this reason, it cannot be properly designated as a 'Christian' faith for it has no content by which it can be distinguished from the faith of other religions.
