BOOK TWO: The Subjective Problem, The Relation of the Subject to the Truth of Christianity, The Problem of Becoming a Christian

PART ONE: Something About Lessing

Chapter I: An Expression of Gratitude

Chapter II: Theses Possibly or Actually Attributable to Lessing
1. The subjective existing thinker has regard to the dialectics of the process of communication
2. The existing subjective thinker is in his existential relation to the truth as negative as he is positive; he has a much humor as he has essential pathos; and he is constantly in process
of becoming, i.e. he is always striving
3. Lessing has said that accidental historical truths can never serve as proofs for eternal truths of the reason; and that the transition by which it is proposed to base an eternal truth upon
historical testimony is a leap
4. Lessing has said that, if God held all truth in His right hand, and in His left the lifelong pursuit of it, he would choose the left hand
A. A logical system is possible
B. An existential system is possible

1. That the point of departure was taken in the pagan consciousness, and why
2. The importance of a preliminary agreement concerning what Christianity is, before there can be any question of mediating between Christianity and speculative thought. The absence of such
an agreement favors the proposal of medication, while at the same time making any mediation illusory; the presence of such an agreement precludes mediation
3. The problem of the Fragments viewed as a problem, introductory not to Christianity, but to becoming a Christian

Section II. The Problem Itself. The eternal happiness of the individual is decided in time through the relationship to something historical, which is furthermore of such a character as to oinclude in its composition that which by virtue of its essence cannot become historical, and must therefore become such by virtue of the absurd

A. Existential Pathos
1. The Initial Expression for Existential Pathos: the absolute direction (respect) toward the absolute telos, expressed in action through the transformation of the individual's existence
