Abstract

Søren Kierkegaard was perhaps the first theologian to anticipate the feminist notion of a distinctively feminine way of sinning. Kierkegaard not only recognized a distinction between feminine and masculine sin, but also rooted it in an anthropological structure that establishes men and women as one species, without diminishing the differences between them.
