1830 to 1834
This chapter describes Kierkegaard's years spent at the University of Copenhagen, dutifully following his father's wish that he become a student of theology. During Kierkegaard's first years he was as diligent as ever in studying his lessons, both because of this duty and because he rejoiced in the opportunity for broader culture which was there offered to him, or which the free life of a university student made possible. While he pursued the philosophical interests his father had encouraged, he also grasped avidly after the pleasures of literature and music. The chapter also traces the beginnings of the Journal, which Kierkegaard had begun in his third year at University, as well as the tragic deaths which befell the Kierkegaard family during this time.
