Example text

Such refutations have the dubious distinction of remaining ensconced in what is vacuous and without foundation. The statement "Truth is an illusion" is applied to itself solely as one "truth" among others-without reflecting on what illusion might mean here, without asking how and for what reason "illusion" as such could be connected with the essence of truth. 2. Such refutations assume the appearance of the sharpest consistency. Yet the consistency comes immediately to an end, lest it be valid for the refuter.

It is correct that the greatest thinkers of antiquity, Heraclitus and Parmenides, reflected on the essence of knowledge. But it is also a "fact" that even today we hardly have any correct conception and gauge of what this reflection on the essence of knowledge meant: "thinking" as the guideline for the projection of beings as a whole upon Being, and· the unrest, concealed Knowledge in Nietzsche's Fundamental Thought 23 from itself, concerning the veiled essence of this guideline and of the "nature of guidelines" as such.

But what if all barriers between truth and untruth fall and everything is of equal value, which is to say, of no value? Then nihilism becomes reality. Does Nietzsche want nihilism or does he precisely want to recognize it as such and overcome it? He wants to overcome it. If, accordingly, the will to truth belongs to life, then truth, since its essence is illusion, cannot be the highest value. There must be a value, a condition of perspectival life-enhancement, that is of greater value than truth.
