Soren Kierkegaard (1813-55) published an extraordinary number of works during his lifetime, but he left behind nearly as much unpublished writing, most of which consists of what are called his "journals and notebooks." Volume 3 of this 11-volume edition of Kierkegaard's Journals and Notebooks includes Kierkegaard's extensive notes on lectures by the Danish theologian H. N. Clausen and by the German philosopher Schelling, as well as a great many other entries on philosophical, theological, and literary topics. In addition, the volume includes many personal reflections by Kierkegaard, notably those in which he provides an account of his love affair with Regine Olsen, his onetime fiancee.

Review quote

"[T]he new series Kierkegaard's Journals and Notebooks, which aims to become the standard English version of Kierkegaard's papers, journals, and notebooks ... is certainly well positioned to achieve this goal... [T]his volume is an excellent addition to an excellent series. It is a rich resource for English-language Kierkegaard scholars, and reason to look forward to future volumes with great anticipation."--Brian Gregor, Philosophy in Review "The attention to detail in this work is at times astonishing... As befits a library volume of this type, it is encyclopedic rather than analytic: the critical accounts are essentially summaries of content and context, rather than interpretative discussions."--Thomas Grimwood, European Legacy "For all of his lyricism, many of Kierkegaard's works project themselves as an impenetrable fortress of abstractions. These magnificently translated journals are a tunnel beneath the moat of that fortress. They capture the unpackaged and unbuttoned Kierkegaard and thus provide a stimulus to anyone intent on understanding a religious author who could well be reckoned a Luther of Lutheranism."--Gordon Marino, Christian Century "These new critical editions do an excellent job of making Kierkegaard's journals and notebooks available in all their richness."--Brian Gregor, Elizabeth C. Shaw and Staff
