It seems to me that you are arguing, in his stress of living (or acting on) his philosophy Søren Kierkegaard is endorsing a form of pragmatism.

Is there such a thing as living philosophy especially in the case of Western philosophy most/all of which is essentially foot notes to Plato. Until 1972 when a certain unnamed book was published nothing new had been said about the nature of Reality since the time of Plato,

Can anyone, including Kierkegaard (in his) time rediscover or awaken True Wisdom by studying the philosophers of pre-Socratic Greece, especially as most/all of the philosophical and theological chit-chat is now the product of, and limited by the left-brained Spirit-killing mind of the Emissary as described by Iain McGilchrist in his book The Master and His Emissary - Kierkegaard was afflicted by this dis-ease too.

Even when one studies the profundities communicated in the great Buddhist and Hindu texts, one's understanding of such is again limited by one's left-brained reductionism, in which we are all trapped.

The Ultimate Nature of the world and how it is arising is inherently and tacitly obvious, if one remains in a state of total psycho-physical oneness with whatever and all that presently arises.

To remain in a state of total psycho-physical oneness with whatever and all that presently arises, one must, necessarily and always presently, Realize inherently Love-Blissful Unity with whatever and all that presently arises.

Inherently Love-Blissful Unity with whatever and all that presently arises is Itself, or inherently, non-separate from whatever and all that presently arises.

Total psycho-physical separation from the world, or whatever and all that is presently arising is unfortunately precisely the first and constant, and inherently problematic, thing done by ALL those who make efforts to find out or to account for how the world is arising, and What Is Its Ultimate Nature.

Total psycho-physical separation is the first and foundation gesture made by anyone who has a problem, or who is seeking, or who is making and effort to account for anything whatsoever.
