This concerns a man who has heard in the sermon on Sunday that a man can do nothing of himself, since he is in all things utterly and totally dependent on God. But how should he apply such a principle in face of the prospect of an outing to the Deer Park with its summer funfair? This question absorbs Climacus for over thirty pages.
