Every individual is a unique product of all those factors which touch his life. Soren Kierkegaard must be understood in the light of those factors within his life. His father, Michael Pedersen, played a major role in his son's life. He was obsessed with guilt because of past sins and sought to make atonement for these sins by disciplining his son in the Christian way of life. Somehow, the father's guilt was tranfered [sic] to Soren, and Soren spent the rest of his life in search for forgiveness.
