The three Stages on Life's Way
The aesthetic stage is typified by a pursuit of pleasure, especially in sensuous pleasure. The aesthetes are seductive, crafty, and energetic in their efforts to find true meaning in the aesthetic experience. The way of life cultivates uncommitted enjoyment and is focused on now and here. The way of life does not entail boredom, dissatisfaction, and frustration. Kierkegaard observes that the aesthete take choosing lightly because, according to them, a particular choice does not make much difference. This way of life is amoral. The aesthetic stage does not value commitment in life and takes things easily and lightly. The stage wants life that is interesting and one that is free from stress and frustration. To enjoy life, one must live for others because enjoyment comes with relating positively with other people.
