In Dru’s and in Rohde’s selections from Kierkegaard’s journals, the number identifies an entry rather than a page; the date following is that of the particular entry.

1. The sociologist Ferdinand Tönnies (Gemeinschaft und Gesellschaft, 1887) is usually credited with having formulated the classic typology of human sociality. He developed his theory at much greater length and applied it much more broadly, but S.K. preceded him in point of time; and a strong case could be made that, aided by his concept of den Enkelte, S.K. drew the distinction even more fundamentally and more seminally than did Tönnies.

2. "The Accounting" (1849) in Point of View, 149 (with the foot-note accompanying).

3. The essay appears in the same volume with his long poem; Michael Frantz, op.cit., 35-46.

4. At this point I have transposed some of Frantz's material to give it a more logical progression--V.E.

5. For two complementary accounts, see Brumbaugh, op.cit., 520-23, and Mallott, op.cit., 76-77. Cf. Catharine Hummer's letter to Mack Junior in Holsinger, op.cit., 779ff.

6. A minute dated May 28, 1763, recorded in Kurtz, op.cit., 135-37.

9. "Regarding the 'Two Notes,'" a postscript dated March 1855, only a few months preceding his death, in Point of View, 137-38.

10. "Lifted Up On High ..." (Pt. III, Reflection 5) in Training in Christianity, 217.

11. Dru Journals, 163 (1837); cf. 85 (1836) and 192 (1838).

12. Works of Love, 153-54.

13. The pages that follow include several rather lengthy passages from S.K.'s journals. They are reproduced in toto (or at least, at length), first, because they are crucial statements of a little recognized aspect of S.K.'s thought, and second, because they are not elsewhere available in English translation.

14. The Present Age, 61-63.

15. Papirer, 10:5:B:208, 392 (1849), quoted by the translators in a footnote in Works of Love, 362.

16. Papirer, 10:2:A:390 (1850) [my trans.--V.E.].

17. Papirer, 10:2:A:478 (1850) [my trans.--V.E.].

18. Here as always, the bracketed material is mine; all else (including the parentheses) is S.K.'s--V.E.

19. Papirer, 9:A:315-16 (1848) [my trans.--V.E.].
