Repetition - Søren Kierkegaard (1843)

Wikipedia - "Repetition is a 1843 book by Søren Kierkegaard. ... In Repetition he followed his own advice and became his own psychologist. He used the pseudonym Constantin Constantius in this book. Constantin is currently conducting experiments into whether repetition is possible. The book includes his experiments and his relation to a nameless patient known only as the Young Man. Every patient must have a problem. The Young Man has fallen in love with a girl, proposed marriage, the proposal has been accepted, but now he has changed his mind."
