hough I don’t know for certain, it seems possible that his system is a hybrid of the outlining method from law and the notecard method from history and sociology. The use of copious cross-links between the individual notes stems from his particular project of synthesizing knowledge from multiple disciplines, thus making it difficult to ever place most cards in one and only one spot in the ever-growing outline.
presumption: L's Folgezettel are a combination of outlining (as common in US maybe not German law edu) and the note cards used in sociology. Cross linking as a way to escape forced categorisation into exclusive buckets. Is there also in cross linking an element perhaps of escaping established idiom while building new (fields) of knowledge? (Vgl. Richard Rorty's struggle when forced to explain pragmatism in the language of Platonic dilemma's. [[Taal als zicht beperkend element 20031104104523]] )
