"This deliberation of Kierkegaard's is oriented, he tells us, "in the direction of the dogmatic problem of original sin." It is an intimate confession of his progress from dread of evil-and of good-to faith.  It is a reinterpretation of the doctrine of original sin in the knowledge of his own ego." (from DJ)
