He was a German philosopher, scholar, and cultural critic. Nietzsche did not believe that Christianity was the only root of Europe’s modern decadence. [11] They will be disappointed, Nietzsche holds, when they cease to exist after living a dehumanizing life of frailty. His books were unavailable to the public in the Soviet Union since 1923. Even then Nietz… No, you know better than that, my friends! [11][12][13] Despite his proclaimed contempt for daily politics and culture of newspaper reading, Nietzsche did comment on contemporary political events in his letters and notes. Nietzsche’s pragmatist interpreters have a case to be made, but like the skeptics’ reading, it is incomplete, as we will see. Sometimes Nietzsche may seem to have very definite opinions on what he regards as moral or as immoral. We are, in one word—and let this be our word of honor!— good Europeans, the heirs of Europe, the rich, oversupplied, but also overly obligated heirs of thousands of years of European spirit: as such, we have also outgrown Christianity and are averse to it, and precisely because we have grown out of it, because our ancestors were Christians who in their Christianity were uncompromisingly upright; for their faith they willingly sacrificed possessions and position, blood and fatherland. However, they didn’t see it that way. Although he valued individualism his general political views included many hierarchical and authoritarian ideas which are usually incompatible with modern individualistic ideologies. Taking this approach, however, risks confusing aspects of the Nietzsche legend with what is important in his philosophical work, and many commentators are rightly skeptical of readings derived primarily from bi… [17][18][19] He often linked noble classes with ancient barbarian conquerors. And man shall be that to Übermensch: a laughingstock or painful embarrassment. [21] The Nietzschean philosopher is an overman; he conquers and creates standards but does not discover them. He mentions a "dishonest lie", (discussing Wagner in The Case of Wagner) as opposed to an "honest" one, recommending further to consult Plato with regard to the latter, which should give some idea of the layers of paradox in his work. A laughingstock or established embarrassment. The … I teach you the Übermensch. The systematic institutionalisation of criminal delinquency, sexual identity and practice, and the mentally ill (to name but a few) are examples used to demonstrate how knowledge or truth is inseparable from the institutions that formulate notions of legitimacy from "immoralities" such as homosexuality and the like (captured in the famous power-knowledge equation). … He often used the term "individualism" to describe a certain set of personality traits - such as originality, nonconformism and egoism - not to describe the political system based on institutions that guarantee wide individual rights and freedoms. Before Nietzsche, the idea of the death of God had been also espoused by Martin Luther and Hegel. First, his view offers a psychological diagnosis of philosophers that promises to explain the phenomena examined in these studies. We share linguistic structures, and so we also share the way … [102] He praised Napoleon for reviving the military spirit which he saw as defense against the decadent rule of "modern ideas", "businessmen and philistines". Friedrich Wilhelm Nietzsche was born on October 15th, 1844, in Röcken bei Lützen, Germany. In delivering a “sacred “Yes””, the child affirms the day, affirms uncertainty, and affirms the flux of life. Traditional philosophy succumbed to Nietzsche’s new philosophy, which endeavored to create truth, and not to discover it. Miles, Thomas. Foucault's later writings, for example, adopt Nietzsche's genealogical method to develop anti-foundationalist theories of power that divide and fragment rather than unite politics (as evinced in the liberal tradition of political theory). In a note Nietzsche says that the cause of European nihilism is the ‘the devaluation of the previous values’. In Ecce Homo he particularly praised French culture as superior to all others, especially German. The old philosophers – Nietzsche also calls them the “teachers of the purpose of existence” (Gay Science §1); it’s not professors of philosophy he has primarily in mind – were in the business of inventing values. [72] There are also controversies about some newer translations of Nietzsche which seem to be misleadingly euphemistic when dealing with more loaded terms that Nietzsche used. Nietzsche undoubtedly holds that there is “no limit to the ways in which the world can be interpreted,” he also maintains that, when seen from the all-important perspective of life, every interpretation can itself be interpreted as “a symptom of growth or decline” (WM 600, p. 326). He called socialism "the tyranny of the meanest and the dumbest"[56] and claimed that it attracts inferior people who are motivated by ressentiment. 210).]. [79], One of the themes that Nietzsche often used to explain social phenomena was mixing of the races. Thus Christianity is no more than the typical teaching of Socialists. His most known key ideas are: the "Übermensch" (or "Superman"), a goal for humanity to set for itself and that God is dead, killed by ourselves as a race. Nietzsche made numerous comments in which he denounces pacifism, praises war, military values and conquests. He gradually backed-off of this view, and in later works referred to it as a thought-experiment. Nietzsche's primarily negative assessment of the ethical and moralistic teachings of Christianity followed from his earlier considerations of the questions of God and morality in the works The Gay Science and Thus Spoke Zarathustra. We—do the same. Keep in mind that essays represent the opinions of the authors and do not necessarily reflect the views of The Imaginative Conservative or its editor or publisher. Owing largely to the writings of Kaufmann and French postwar philosophers, Nietzsche's reputation improved and today he usually is not linked to Nazism as he was in the past. The will to power as Nietzsche conceives of it is neither good nor bad. Walter Kaufmann put forward the view that the powerful individualism expressed in his writings would be disastrous if introduced to the public realm of politics. These emendations show how Schopenhauer's philosophy was not a mere initial stimulus for Nietzsche, but formed the basis for much of Nietzsche's thinking. Works such as Bruce Detwiler's Nietzsche and the Politics of Aristocratic Radicalism (University of Chicago Press, 1990), Fredrick Appel's Nietzsche Contra Democracy (Cornell University Press, 1998), and Domenico Losurdo's Nietzsche, il ribelle aristocratico (Turin: Bollati Boringhieri, 2002) challenge the prevalent liberal interpretive consensus on Nietzsche and assert that Nietzsche's elitism was not merely an aesthetic pose but an ideological attack on the widely held belief in equal rights of the modern West, locating Nietzsche in the conservative-revolutionary tradition. [53] As opposed to the urban working class, Nietzsche praised the peasantry as an example of health and natural nobility.[54][55]. [61] He similarly called Eugen Dühring an "apostle of revenge", "moral braggart" and his ideas "indecent and revolting moralistic gibberish". Nietzsche holds that science and religion are creations of temporal people—they do not reveal any kind of eternal standard of truth. Nietzsche’s mature philosophy emerged after The Gay Science. Peter Bergmann: Nietzsche was among the most historically minded of philosophers. I've read more Schmitt than Nietzsche to be honest.

All comments are moderated and must be civil, concise, and constructive to the conversation. (Grand Rapids: Baker Academic, 2009), 165. Draft for a letter to his sister Elisabeth Förster-Nietzsche (December 1887), Georges Bataille was one of the first to denounce the deliberate misinterpretation of Nietzsche carried out by Nazis, among them Alfred Baeumler. The work of Philipp Mainländer had an important impact on Nietzsche's intellectual development and made him distance himself from the philosophy of Schopenhauer. [75] He was fascinated by the restrictive caste system of India and Laws of Manu which he saw as promoting eugenics. (...) When one has reached a certain degree of independence, one always longs for more: separation in proportion to the degree of force; the individual is no longer content to regard himself as equal to everybody, he actually seeks for his peer—he makes himself stand out from others. Nietzsche’s philosophy can be confusing, but when we can incorporate it into everyday life, we live a life that is more fulfilling. In his Egotism in German Philosophy,[110] Santayana listed Nietzsche's antithetical reactions to Schopenhauer: The will to live would become the will to dominate; pessimism founded on reflection would become optimism founded on courage; the suspense of the will in contemplation would yield to a more biological account of intelligence and taste; finally in the place of pity and asceticism (Schopenhauer' s two principles of morals) Nietzsche would set up the duty of asserting the will at all costs and being cruelly but beautifully strong. He interpreted Napoleon as an autocratic genius who stood above conventional morality and tried to revive the aristocratic spirit of Roman Empire, paganism and Renaissance, and not as a progressive revolutionary leader like some of his contemporaries. "[109][non-primary source needed]. [3] This repudiation of metaphysics radically alters the role of a philosopher. [The Gay Science (1882), p. 341 (passage translated in Danto 1965, p. Sproul, The Consequences of Ideas: Understanding the Concepts that Shaped Our World, 3rd ed. Nietzsche believed that the central task of philosophy was to teach us to 'become who we are'. He contrasted such mundane, petty politics with his idea of "great politics", and often praised individual politicians such as Napoleon. Nietzsche argued that all the things built on monotheistic assumptions, including traditional morality, became endangered alongside the church. He famously contextualized his predecessors, beginning with Socrates. [78] Despite his opposition to Darwinism, he was very interested in the works of Francis Galton. Nietzsche’s assault on Christianity immortalized him as a bleak nihilist who gleefully proclaimed that “God is dead.”[4] In truth, Nietzsche described the death of God as a tumultuous event in world history which threatened to plunge mankind into nihilism. (Gifts may be made online or by check mailed to the Institute at 9600 Long Point Rd., Suite 300, Houston, TX, 77055.). The philosopher and the scientist direct their will to power into … [32] In any case, few philosophers really consider Nietzsche an "individualist" thinker. He stated in Twilight of the Idols (1888) "Women are considered profound. At Leipzig he studied classical philosophy and first read the works of the German philosopher Schopenhauer. [47] In Human, All Too Human he wrote that "youthful Jew of the stock exchange is the most repugnant invention of the whole human race",[48] although he later noted that Jewish financiers should play a prominent role in the new united Europe. Aside from Brandes, Nietzsche owned and read a copy of Hans Lassen Martensen's Christliche Ethik (1873) in which Martensen extensively quoted and wrote about Kierkegaard's individualism in ethics and religion. [70] Western Leftist writers, led by French postwar intellectuals, largely rehabilitated Nietzsche on the Left and have proposed ways of using Nietzschean theory in what has become known as the "politics of difference" — particularly in formulating theories of political resistance and sexual and moral difference. Nietzsche believed this "death" had already started to undermine the foundations of morality and would lead to moral relativism and moral nihilism. “In truth, Nietzsche described the death of God as a tumultuous event in world history which threatened to plunge mankind into nihilism.” Finally someone got it right! [71] Some of his later admirers often tried to reinterpret, downplay or ignore this part of his thought, but because of preponderance of explicit comments in Nietzsche's work, such approach remains controversial. [120], Nietzsche knew little of the 19th-century philosopher Søren Kierkegaard. Nietzsche’s evolutionary epistemology, however, appears to imply a debunking argument about the truth of our beliefs that seems to undermine his commitment to a … [25][26] He believed in "order of rank" and claimed that it is natural for some people to be masters and others to be slaves. Nietzsche enrolled at Schulpfortain 1858 at the age of fourteen. [83] He blamed the mixing of the races on the decay of the European society and culture, [84] but also credited it with the creation of modern men of the "historical sense." [2] Nietzsche, Friedrich. His works are strongly associated with critical analysis of religion, philosophy, psychology, and morality, and promote atheism, psychologism, and historism. The hidden Yes in you is stronger than all Nos and Maybes that afflict you and your age like a disease; and when you have to embark on the sea, you emigrants, you, too, are compelled to this by— a faith! According to Santayana, Nietzsche considered his philosophy to be a correction of Schopenhauer's philosophy. Friedrich Nietzsche (1844-1900) was a German philosopher who was also highly active in the arts, writing both music and poetry. In the juncture between normative ethics and descriptive ethics, Nietzsche distinguishes between "master morality" and "slave morality". Despite these problems, the poor and downtrodden cling to their religion out of the vain hope that one day their problems will vanish. In the second part of this aphorism, which according to Bataille contained the most important parts of Nietzsche's political thought, the thinker of the Eternal Return stated: No, we do not love humanity; but on the other hand we are not nearly "German" enough, in the sense in which the word "German" is constantly being used nowadays, to advocate nationalism and race hatred and to be able to take pleasure in the national scabies of the heart and blood poisoning that now leads the nations of Europe to delimit and barricade themselves against each other as if it were a matter of quarantine. The Portable Nietzsche, ed. In the field of meta-ethics, one can perhaps most accurately classify Nietzsche as a moral skeptic; meaning that he claims that all ethical statements are false, because any kind of correspondence between ethical statements and "moral facts" remains illusory. [69] In socialist countries Nietzsche was usually considered a disreputable reactionary, burgeois, imperialist or fascist philosopher. Note, however, that one can explain Nietzsche's moral opinions without attributing to him the claim of their truth. [121][122] Georg Brandes, a Danish philosopher, wrote to Nietzsche in 1888 asking him to study the works of Kierkegaard, to which Nietzsche replied that he would.

Part I of Friedrich Nietzsche’s Beyond Good and Evil, first published in German in 1886. [45] He claimed that luxurious goods should be heavily taxed[46] and that economy should be regulated so that people cannot get rich quickly by means of financial speculation. [97] Due to his complex views and occasionally contradictory comments on these matters, the idea of Nietzsche as a predecessor to Nazism and fascism remains controversial and debated among scholars (see: Nietzsche and fascism). [115] Mainländer is a hedonist[116] and the goal of his ethics to indicate how man can reach the highest happiness. So-called “truths” should be questioned—not pursued. As a writer, he wrote several books such as The Gay S… Please consider donating now.

He himself can be seen as the philosopher of the later Bismarckian era. [20] Under this figure’s tutelage, modern philosophy has become a mere exercise in the will to power—a critique of established assumptions to bring about the next ones. [7] The story of history, for Nietzsche, was simply the desultory tale of how new values subordinate the old ones. No philosopher has been more revered throughout history than Socrates. [19] While Nietzsche’s belief in the inevitable victory of strong values seems influenced by Darwinian thought, there is a serious difference, for Nietzsche holds that the strong will always “win,” not that the strong will always be the best. While interpretations of Nietzsche's overman vary wildly, here are a few of his quotes from Thus Spoke Zarathustra:[citation needed]. ... All beings so far have created something beyond themselves; and do you want to be the ebb of this great flood, and even go back to the beasts rather than overcome man? [125] More than 60 articles and 15 full-length studies have been published devoted entirely in comparing these two thinkers.[125]. Man is something that shall be overcome. In The Will to Power he further elaborated similarity between Christianity and socialism: The Gospel is the announcement that the road to happiness lies open for the lowly and the poor—that all one has to do is to emancipate one's self from all institutions, traditions, and the tutelage of the higher classes. Thomas Brobjer believes one of the works Nietzsche wrote about Kierkegaard is in Morgenröthe, which was partly written in response to Martensen's work. He does not set himself up in opposition as a personality, but merely as a unit; he represents the rights of all other individuals as against the whole. Nietzsche presents the idea that past and present philosophers have unknowingly been victims of their own unconscious forces or drives. 1887) which expounded and critiqued Kierkegaard's psychology. Recently there was unearthed further, still circumstantial, evidence clarifying his relationship with Stirner. Once you were apes, and even now, too, man is more ape than any ape...The Übermensch is the meaning of the earth. Nietzsche believed that clinging to any metaphysical standard of truth, whether done subliminally as a scientist or overtly as a churchgoer, stymies the human capacity to create meaning. Without any presence of metaphysics or higher standards to seek, the very idea of philosophy is thrown into question.
