The following index
to this translation of "Der Einzige
und Sein Eigentum" is intended to
help one, after reading the book, to find a passage which he remembers.
It is not a concordance to aid in analytical study. Hence the
designations of the matter referred to are in a form intended
to be recognized by the person who remembers the passage; I have
generally preferred, so far as convenience permitted, to use the
words of the text itself, being confident that a description of
the subject-matter in words more appropriate to the summary form
of the index would never help any person to find his passage.
If the designations are recognizable, I have permitted them to
Of necessity the index has been made hastily, and I hereby confess it to be guilty of all faults that an index can possess , though I hope that the page numbers will prove to be accurate. The faults that I am most ashamed of are the incompleteness which usually omits the shorter occurrences of a given word or idea and the indefiniteness of the "ff." which does not tell the reader how far the reference extends. It has actually not been in my power to avoid either of these faults, and I hope they will not prevent the index from being of very considerable use to those who pay continued attention to the book. These two faults will be found least noticeable in the references to proper names and quotations: therefore the reader who wants to find a passage will do best to remember, if possible, a conspicuous proper name or a quotation whose source is known -- perhaps most often from the Bible -- and look up his passage by that. In the indexing of quotations, however, I have omitted anonymous proverbs, lines of German hymns, and quotations of whose authorship I was (whether pardonably or unpardonably) ignorant.
