He additionally persevered to direct his barbs on the confirmed Danish Church and its clergy (particularly Bishop J. P. Mynster and Professor H. L. Martensen), on the press, and on the test by means of smooth philosophy to appreciate the incomprehensibility of religion. Kierkegaard's examining notes contain entries on Augustine, the Stoics, German mystics, Luther, pietist authors, and Rousseau, whereas his autobiographical reflections circle round the query of which, if any, of a number of essays explaining his existence and works he should put up. maybe unsurprisingly, Kierkegaard's extra own reflections go back once more to his public feud with M. A. Goldschmidt and his damaged engagement to Regine Olsen.

Kierkegaard wrote his journals in a two-column layout, one for his preliminary entries and the second one for the large marginal reviews that he extra later.
