Okay so I am doing an in depth study of Anti-Duhring rn with an eye towards how it could be updated in light of developments in science and I am trying to combine these two note taking methods in a way.
I have set up the beginnings of a zattelkasten and I have devised a system of indexing my notes. Each sheet of paper in the box is assigned a number, starting at one and counting up in simple chronological order. The numbers are used to link together notes in the same way we link to posts on imageboards. I have three categories of pages so far:
Indexes, which assign certain categories to a list of other pages. They are just sets of labels with the corresponding numbers.
So for example I have an Marx-Engels Index, a Lenin Index, a History index, a systems theory index, a mathematics index, and multiple index-indices.
The second category is concepts and definitions which which is kinda self explanatory.
The third is notes and annotations where I am putting detailed notes for each paragraph of whatever I am reading. I will probably have a forth category for drawing connections between different texts or maybe just a general category that allows for any format so I can draw whatever kind of connections I want between any two pieces of paper.
This is more categories than are in Luhmann's method, but I think this is necessary if I want to include detailed paragraph by paragraph notes like Marx does in his manuscripts. It's a rather slow process but I kinda like it so far. I will post updates as I build my zettelkasten.
