I consider a prior reviewer that the experiences of this booklet appear to fall into 2 camps, both traditionalists (Who all provide the ebook 1 famous person yet fail to offer any substance as to why) And competitors who supply it five starts off (But back, principally lack content material as to why provide the ebook such compliment) with a bit of luck as neither a traditionalist or an opponent my evaluate could be a little extra balanced.

Example text

To his mother and sister, September 2, 1886: For the next four years the creation of a four-volume magnum opus is proposed. * With this mention of his major work Nietzsche refers to the fact that on the cover of the book that had appeared during that year, Beyond Good and Evil, a work with the above-mentioned title was cited as the volume to appear next. In addition, Nietzsche writes in his Toward a Genealogy of Morals, which appeared in 1887 (See Division Three, no. 27): ... , the question of the meaning of the ascetic ideal] I refer to a work I am now preparing: The Will to Power, Attempt at a Revaluation of All Values.

We will introduce two examples, each quite independent of the other, of such a treatment of the doctrine of eternal return in Nietzsche's philosophy: Alfred Baeumler, Nietzsche: Philosopher and Politician (I 931 ), and Karl Jaspers, Nietzsche: Introduction to an Understanding of His Philosophizing (I 936). * The negative position taken by each author with respect to the doctrine of eternal recurrence-and for us that means the misinterpretation by each-varies in kind and has different grounds. Baeumler portrays what Nietzche calls the most difficult thought and the peak of the meditation as an entirely personal, "religious" conviction of Nietzsche's.

Is Nietzsche not nearly so subversive as he himself was wont to pose? Dispelling such fears is not really necessary; we need not bother to do that. On the contrary, the reference to the fact that Nietzsche moves in the orbit of the question of Western philosophy only serves to make clear that Nietzsche knew what philosophy is. Such knowledge is rare. Only great thinkers possess it. The greatest possess it most purely in the form of a persistent question. The genuinely grounding question, as the question of the essence of Being, does not unfold in the history of philosophy as such; Nietzsche too persists in the guiding question.
