5 18 Dialogical Philosophy On his Gilleleje summer holiday in 1835, when he was twenty-two, he entered the "complete account" of his life in the journal. What he needed especially, he discerned, was to find the idea for which he would be willing to live and die—his own truth. He allotted himself three years to achieve his objective.

Kierkegaard accepts Hegel's view in principle. He, too, understands the conflict between Athens and Socrates, between the objective-substantial and the subjective-personal principles. Yet he has given a special interpretation to the subjective factor by presenting Socrates as an ironic man. Kierkegaard's book on irony is divided into two parts. The first section, about three-fourths of the book, is devoted to a clarification of Socrates' ironic stance. The second section, shorter in length, concerns itself with the irony of the Romantics.
