dc.description.abstractInformed by the work of Michel de Certeau, this dissertation will explore how the anonymous author of The Cloud of Unknowing, Søren Kierkegaard, and Franz Kafka present negative theologies that promote the development of particular spiritual know-how’s, which by using repetitive practices of discourse, lead to unity with God at the expense of absolute solitude.
