Luhmann's Literatur Note Examples
I am trying to understand how Luhmann did his literature notes, which I think are very important for this system to work. At this point, I am just really curious how he did it.
My first language isn't Deutsche, so I am having trouble finding Luhmann's literatur notes from the uni-bielefeld online archive, if there are any on that website. If there are, could our germanisch freunde help find a few examples of Luhmann's literature notes, with links, and perhaps explain what is on them? From Sonke Ahrens presentation, it looked like a shorthand list, which doesn't make sense to me for literature notes. How could he remember or understand what he read? Maybe this system worked for him because he had an eidetic memory?
Sonke Ahrens presents an example of Luhmann's literature note, but doesn't explain what's on it or even how Luhmann went about writing them. To me it looked like a shorthand list of things. It also appeared to be on a piece of paper larger than a note card. It was difficult to tell from the image on Ahren's presentation however. This is where I think Ahren's book falls short.
