(p. xvii) References to Kierkegaard's Works

(p. xvii) References to Kierkegaard's Works

References to Kierkegaard's published works are to the latest Danish edition of his works, Søren Kierkegaards Skrifter, ed. Niels-Jørgen Cappelørn et al. (Copenhagen: Gad, 1997–), abbreviated to SKS and followed by volume number, and to the translations in the series Kierkegaard's Writings, edited by Howard V. and Edna H. Hong (Princeton, NJ: Princeton University Press, 1978–2009) referred to by a title-based acronym. Thus (SKS11: 157/SUD: 42) refers to The Sickness unto Death (English trans.), p. 42=SKS, volume 11, p. 157. A full list of the acronyms used is given below. Where other translations are used, full references are given in the relevant article.

References to Kierkegaard's unpublished journals, notebooks, and other works are also to Søren Kierkegaards Skrifter. In this case, however, references to the English translation are to Kierkegaard's Journals and Notebooks, ed. Niels-Jørgen Cappelørn et al. (Princeton, NJ: Princeton University Press, 2007–), abbreviated to KJN. These are then followed by the entry numbers used by Kierkegaard himself and adopted by both SKS and KJN, rather than page numbers (only very few entries are more than one or two pages long). As only the first six volumes of KJN have appeared at the time of this Handbook going to press, references may also be given to the selection of Søren Kierkegaard's Journals and Papers, ed. and trans. Howard V. Hong and Edna H. Hong (Bloomington and London: Indiana University Press, 1967–78), abbreviated to JP. Following well-established custom, these latter references are given by volume number and entry (rather than page) number. Where authors have cited this translation, references may be given in addition to the SKS/KJN references. Thus SKS18/KJN2: EE:62 [JP 2: 1319] refers to SKS, volume 18 and KJN, volume 2, entry number EE:62, equivalent to JP, volume 2, entry number 1319. The abbreviation SKSK refers to the Kommentar or Commentary volumes accompanying each volume of SKS.

As SKS does not include all the material published in the older Danish edition of Kierkegaard's journals and notebooks, some few references are to these—Papirer, ed. P. A. Heiberg, V. Kuhr, and R. Torsting (Copenhagen: Gyldendal, 1909–48), abbreviated to Pap. (p. xviii)
