NOTES

TABLE OF CONTENTS, TITLE PAGE, AND EPIGRAPH

See Supplement, pp. 2.7-14 (Pap. VI B 13; VI A 146; VI B 14, 20, 25. 27:1, 15, 16. 17,40:1,19:1,95,96).

TABLE OF CONTENTS.

See Supplement, pp. 2.8-9 (Pap. VI B 89,90,98:1,2). Concluding Unscientific Postscript was intended as the final work of Kicrkegaard as an author. See Historical Introduction, pp. 2.xi-xiii. Mimicai. Mime is the dramatic art of expressively imitating emotions and thoughts by actions and gestures, usually without words. Here "mimical" presumably can be interpreted as "poetically artistically elucidated" in such a way that the tone and form are appropriate to the content. It may also refer to a gathering of all the earlier "mimed" (pseudonymous) works as background material for this "concluding" work. Pathetical. Because the English "pathetic" is usually taken to mean "pitiful," the Danish pathetisk is translated in Postscript as "pathos-filled" (and det Pathetiske as "pathos"). Here, because of the trio of adjectives in like form, "pathetical" is used. Pathos marks the poet and his work, and in Postscript Kierkegaard is the poet's (Climacus's) poet. Dialectical. The dialectical marks the thinker. Climacus is a poetic philosopher. TITLE PAGE.
