This volume contains 15 so-called notebooks, written by Kierkegaard between (approx.) 1835 and 1849. The individual texts are not only revealing from a personal-biographical perspective, but also provide valuable information for the understanding of the genesis and character of Kierkegaarda (TM)s thought and writing. The contents can be categorized in five groups: Notes in context of examination preparation (i.e. Not1); excerpts and commentaries on contemporary theologians and philosophers (i.e. Not9a "11); mixed theological, philosophical and aesthetic comments (i.e. Not12a "14); travel notes (i.e. Not6); recapitulation of the relationship to his former fiancA(c).
