In Kapitel 38 schließlich heißt es im Manuskript „Ein junger Fürst, an der Spitze seiner Regimente, prachtvoll als Ausdruck der Selbstsucht und Selbstüberhebung seines Volks, – aber, ohne jede Scham, sich als Christen bekennend!“ Das Wort „junger“ wurde ausgelassen, um die Anspielung auf Wilhelm II., der 1888 als 29-Jähriger ins Amt kam, zu verschleiern. There are absolutely loads of biographies of Nietzsche. This is the biography on Nietzsche we've been waiting for. Gott ist tot • Strauss schätzte Nietzsches Philosophie sehr und benannte seine sinfonische Dichtung Also sprach Zarathustra nach Nietzsches gleichnamiger Schrift. etwa die von 1886 stammende „Vorrede“ der, Zur möglicherweise entscheidenden Bedeutung, die die. Consequently, since falsity is so fundamental here, Christian doctrine is game for furnishing the criterion of truth for the opposite of its claims; but not quite, hence the "almost". “Qualities.-Our strong points sometimes drive us so far forward that we cannot any longer endure our weaknesses, and we perish by them: we also perhaps see this result beforehand, but nevertheless do not want it to be otherwise.”, “Your virtue is the health of your soul.”. Although Nietzsche’s words always result in a brightly amusing read, they are strongest when contextualized by scholars whose life’s work was committed to knowing him. The suffering of mankind at large was not a significant ethical concern in his view, it was largely a matter of indifference – in fact it was to be welcomed because there’s nothing better than a good dose of suffering to get the creative juices flowing. It seems like Nietzsche is one of the few philosophers whom lots of people who have never studied philosophy still enjoy reading. Wie in seiner Götzen-Dämmerung und in weiteren seiner letzten Werke philosophiert Nietzsche auch hier „mit dem Hammer“ und will alte Werte „umwerten“. The book includes several of Nietzsche’s most ongoing discussions of morality and art, wisdom and truth, the intellectual conscience, and the source of logic. So fehle der Gottesbegriff ebenso wie eine moralische Zurechtmachung der Welt: Das Leiden werde nicht mit der Sünde erklärt, sondern kühl erkannt und auf kluge Weise bekämpft. Möglicherweise war das „Gesetz wider das Christenthum“ lange Zeit nur Elisabeth Förster-Nietzsche und Heinrich Köselitz bekannt und wurde den Herausgebern bis 1932 vorenthalten. So that challenge is interesting in its own right, even if you wouldn’t want to side with Nietzsche, who’s ready to sacrifice the herd of humanity for the sake of a Goethe or a Beethoven. Nietzsche thinks there are higher human beings. In 1864 Friedrich Nietzsche went to the University of Bonn to study theology and classical philology. But that included a great deal of study of ancient Greek philosophy. Gedanken über die moralischen Vorurteile • So finden sich gerade die von Nietzsche hier gelobten positiven Stellen über Frauen nicht in den Originalen. For Christianity might make claims that are not tied to its fundamental components. Even the most unfamiliar with philosophy have it in their library, or have at least heard about Thus Spoke Zarathustra. Although Nietzsche creates a persuasive case for its’Dionysian’ artist and observes beautifully among his great heroes, Goethe and Cesare Borgia, he also provides a moving, nearly ecstatic picture of his only worthy competitor: Christ. Schließlich strich Nietzsche auch noch diesen Untertitel und ersetzte ihn durch Fluch auf das Christenthum. Nietzsche on Truth and Philosophy It usually comes up on this subreddit when people look for secondary texts on Nietzsche. Noch vor Ende der Drucklegung dieser Werke brach Nietzsches Wahnsinn um den Jahreswechsel 1888/89 offen aus. I’ve gone on record before saying that the worst place to begin is Thus Spake Zarathustra, and while I’ve softened that opinion a bit, I still think that there are less “fundamental” and well-known works of his that are better starting places. In 2011, we asked Nietzsche expert Brian Leiter to explain the appeal of the controversial philosopher and to recommend books by and about him. Nietzsche contra Wagner • We ask experts to recommend the five best books in their subject and explain their selection in an interview. Five Books interviews are expensive to produce. That often has a virtue – you get more of a sense of Nietzsche in Kaufman’s English than anyone else’s English, but sometimes for a philosophically-minded reader it can elide certain important distinctions. Nietzsche weist selbst darauf hin, dass er sich in seiner Psychologie Jesu kritisch mit Ernest Renans La Vie de Jésus (1863) auseinandersetzt. So he spent the remainder of his sane life, until his mental collapse in 1889, basically as an invalid travelling between different inns and hotels in and around Italy, Switzerland and southern France, trying to find a good climate, often writing, often walking when his health permitted, but often bedridden with excruciating headaches, vomiting, insomnia. You’ve chosen a mixture of primary and secondary material. Mehrfach lobte er Dostojewskis psychologischen Scharfsinn. He chased himself from society before his final meltdown in 1899 when he became mad. In the second part of the book Clark does take up many of the famous themes from Nietzsche: The will to power, eternal recurrence, the ascetic ideal, and so on. We’d love your help. ©2017 by The Blog of Nathaniel Kampeas. Märtyrer heiligzusprechen, habe der Wahrheit geschadet: Immer noch sei die Ansicht verbreitet, eine Sache sei wahr, weil jemand für sie in den Tod gehe. Über das Pathos der Wahrheit • Required fields are marked *. [21] Sehr beeindruckt war er von Nietzsches Beschreibung der Person Jesus: Er lobte, „wie dabei aus dem Originellen der Person auch das Menschliche hervorspringt“. Zur Genealogie der Moral • He’s the first bible to have interpreted Nietzsche’s major works, and never before has one translator given us a lot of Nietzsche. Nietzsche delineates his Will to Power theory and devotes pages into critiquing Christian believing, specifically Christianity’s definition of good and bad. Twilight of the Idols,’ a grand declaration of war’ on most of the time’s general ideas, provides a lightning trip of his entire doctrine. Er lobt dagegen die Methodik der Wissenschaft, die den Menschen unter die Tiere zurückgestellt habe und so erst anfange, ihn zu begreifen. Der Antichrist sei „ein Denkmal ganz einziger Art“. He’s not the most literal translator but he is the most evocative. Nietzsche himself was not trained in philosophy, he was trained in classics. Later on the author goes on to contrast Buddhism with Christianity, claiming that Buddhism is the product of the higher and "even learned" class, while Christianity is the product of the dregs of society; and it advocates uncleanliness and thereby poor health. Gedruckt werden sollte aber zunächst die im Oktober begonnene Autobiographie Ecce homo, dann auch Nietzsche contra Wagner und die Dionysos-Dithyramben. Sein heute in der Nietzsche-Forschung übliches Sigel ist AC. When human beings entered into civilised intercourse they had to repress their cruel instincts, but since the instinct of cruelty is central to human beings that instinct had to be discharged elsewhere and became, gradually, guilt. If you don’t know any Kant or Plato or the pre-Socratics, you’re not going to understand a lot of what’s motivating Nietzsche, what he’s reacting against. Nietzsche formulierte sie dort offener als Fragen, differenzierte oder gab Argumente für und gegen bestimmte Aspekte der Religionen (z. Hauptschuldiger an dieser Umfälschung sei Paulus, der alle Begriffe Jesu missbraucht habe, um sich selbst an die Macht zu bringen. That’s basically Freud’s story in Civilisation and its Discontents.
