One of Nietzsche’s famous writings Beyond Good and Evil expresses his views on society and the two different classes it holds, slave and master.

Nietzsche - ... In other words, Nietzsche establishes his foundation of truth as opposed to lies. Since the development of language, all its representations are, according to Nietzsche, lies. Language is a form of self-deception, which humans have created to convince themselves that the unreal is real. Indeed, Nietzsche asks, “Is language the adequate expression of all realities?” (Nietzsche 453). The emphasis here is the one to one correspondence of an object to that of its spoken word. For example, when I a rainbow, the first thing that I associate with it is color....   [tags: Philosophy, On Truth and Lies in a Nonmoral Sense] 1664 words

Nietzsche and Wagner - Nietzsche and Wagner In terms of artists and their influences, the case of Nietzsche and Wagner has been the focal point of discussion between many great academic minds of the last century. The controversy surrounding the relationship has led many to postulate that the eventual break between the two men may have contributed to the untimely death of Wagner in 1882, and Nietzsche's eight-year writing spurt from 1883 - 1888. While investigating the details of this peculiar relationship, I was struck by the historical and philosophical depth of several discoveries, the fundamental question being this: Why was Nietzsche's perception of both Wagner's music and his character upset simply because Wagner declared his return to God....   [tags: Papers] 3902 words

God remains dead. And we have killed him!” (Nietzsche, The Gay Science 388). Thinkers of the death of God theology of the American 1960s such as Thomas Altizer insisted that “we must recognize that the death of God is a historical event: God has died in our time, in our history, in our existence” (Christian Atheism 61). Although these two conceptions of the death of God differed, they had several aspects in common: they faced opposition, they thought religion was a product of human necessity, they acknowledged the importance of coexisting opposites, they expressed a certain humanism and interest in individuality, they saw God and religion as products partially of human influence, and they saw that Christianity diminished to a nominalistic existence....   [tags: Religion Papers] 2138 words

Cassirer, Nietzsche and Niccolò Machiavelli's The Prince - Cassirer, Nietzsche and Niccolò Machiavelli's The Prince When the word "Renaissance" is mentioned, an image of love for antiquity learning and fine arts usually springs to one's mind. Yet this perception, however legitimate it may be in many areas of Renaissance human achievements, shatters in the face of Niccolò Machiavelli's masterpiece The Prince. Unlike his contemporary Baldassare Castiglione who exemplified subtlety, Machiavelli was ruthlessly practical, nonchalantly callous, and admirably seamless in his logics about the bloody art of political power....   [tags: Prince]

Sigumand Freud And Nietzsche: Personalities And The Mind - Sigumand Freud and Nietzsche: Personalities and The Mind There were two great minds in this century. One such mind was that of Sigmund Freud (1856-1939). In the year 1923 he created a new view of the mind. That view encompassed the idea we have split personalities and that each one have their own realm, their own tastes, their own principles upon which they are guided. He called these different personalities the id, ego, and super ego. Each of them are alive and well inside each of our unconscious minds, separate but yet inside the mind inhabiting one equal plane....   [tags: essays research papers] 1787 words

Consciousness - ... With an impaired vision and thought, humans believe that we possess the absolute knowledge and ability to determine the truth from false, and the evil from the good. Darwin and Nietzsche employ the Heraclitus’ philosophy to prove that humans are living in an illusionary world, in which we believe that we are the perfect species on the earth that can attain knowledge and understandings to the absolute natural laws of the universe. By delineating the theories of human language and evolutionary processes, Nietzsche and Darwin debunk the hubris of human beings and reevaluate the perception of humans....   [tags: Philosophy, Darwin, Nietzsche, Heraclitus] 679 words

Comparing Nietzsche and Schopenhauer's Attitudes Towards Life - Comparing Nietzsche and Schopenhauer's Attitudes Towards Life ABSTRACT: On the basis of his metaphysics, Schopenhauer was led to advocate quietism and resignation as attitudes toward life. In the course of his career, Nietzsche reversed his estimation of Schopenhauer from initial agreement to final excoriation. In what follows, I examine and assess the grounds on which Nietzsche revised his opinion of Schopenhauer as educator of humanity. I argue that three fundamental issues divide Nietzsche and Schopenhauer....   [tags: Philosophy]

The Philosophy of Existentialism - ‘The most dangerous follower is he whose defection would destroy the whole party: that is to say, the best follower.’ – Friedrich Nietzsche Being recognizable and distinctive nowadays is something most individuals seek after. To become important or standing out in any community is not something today’s individuals have created or whatsoever. Ever since the twentieth century and even before, that belief and eagerness to prove your existence has been noticeably present. Not only between common people has this been there, also philosophers had sincerely thought about that humanly keenness to prove that one is different and essential, and tried to philosophically explain it....   [tags: Philosophy, Nietzsche, Socrates] 1066 words

Friedrich Nietzsche's Ecce Homo: Defining Humans - A Portrait Of Friedrich Nietzsche Should human beings be defined simply by their genetics or heritage. This is a question that pains many philosophers including Friedrich Nietzsche, who is the author of Ecce Homo. In his book Nietzsche goes through implicate measures to emphasize that human beings cannot merely be defined by their genetics or national origin. According to Nietzsche, it is how we live that characterizes us. In fact, there is a specific issue in his book that thoroughly discuss an issue that affect the way in which we live our lives as well as who we are....   [tags: essays research papers] 779 words

Reality and Individual Interpretations - “There are no facts, only interpretations.” These words from Frederick Nietzsche poignantly illustrate the notion that one’s reality is inevitably shaped by the influence of other’s around us. The set of values according to which one judges everyday events upon is the result of the reality formed based on other’s interpretations of the world. When one lacks the knowledge to develop a sound reality, one relies upon the reality of others to come to a sensible interpretation. However, though one may be adamant that the reality that one experiences is real, others’ continual influence upon them may eventually persuade them and thus conform to the newfound reality....   [tags: Frederick Nietzsche, reality, psychology] 840 words

Crime, Punishment and Nietzsche: It’s a Bird, It’s a Plane, It’s… Superman? - ... Raskolnikov could not stand the isolation, and confessed in order to become part of humanity again. This goes against Nietzsche’s superman because “Nietzsche believed the superman must not allow his will to be influenced by others” (Cernich). Though Raskolnikov failed to prove to himself that he was part of the “extraordinary” and did not live up to the standards of Nietzsche’s superman, his theory bears resemblance to Nietzsche’s Übermensch in the main idea of being able to liberate himself from morals and values in order to benefit mankind....   [tags: Literature]

Nietzsche Contra Schopenhauer: The Construel of Eternal Recurrence - Nietzsche Contra Schopenhauer: The Construel of Eternal Recurrence Several years after the completion of his chief work, Thus Spoke Zarathustra, and shortly before his final mental collapse, Nietzsche pinpointed in retrospect its central concern: "the fundamental conception of the work, the idea of eternal recurrence, the highest form of affirmation which can possibly be attained" (6: 335). To have admitted that the most important philosophical project of his life was the construction of a formula which could overcome nihilism and affirm life, betrayed not only what he believed to have been his greatest achievement....   [tags: Philosophy] 3985 words

Freud and Nietzsche - an Account for the Role of Memory in Our Lives - One of the main concerns of contemporary philosophy has been the role of the memory in the life of the individual and the group, or more precisely - the lack and excess of memory. Memory is something very unreliable, because it causes the same kind of decay that invades our physical bodies, undermining the identity of every individual and every society. Even though human identity is based on historical memory, neither individuals, nor societies should be limited in categorical way by it and the importance of forgetting should not be diminished....   [tags: Psychology] 951 words

edmundlear Edmund of King Lear as Nietzsche's Free Spirit - Edmund of King Lear as Nietzsche's Free Spirit       In King Lear, Shakespeare creates a brilliant tragedy whose plot is driven primarily by its villains. Of these, Edmund stands alone as a man who makes his fortune, surrounded by those who seize fortune only when it is handed to them.  Shakespeare's ability to create a vivid, living character in the space of a few lines of speech triumphs in Edmund, who embodies a totally different moral system than that of Shakespeare's era.  Three centuries later, Friedrich Nietzsche's philosophy of the Free Spirit would respect these values....   [tags: King Lear essays]

Two Brands of Nihilism - Two Brands of Nihilism As philosopher and poet Nietzsche's work is not easily conformable to the traditional schools of thought within philosophy. However, an unmistakable concern with the role of religion and values penetrates much of his work. Contrary to the tradition before him, Nietzsche launches vicious diatribes against Christianity and the dualistic philosophies he finds essentially life denying. Despite his early tutelage under the influence of Schopenhauer's philosophy, Nietzsche later philosophy indicates a refusal to cast existence as embroiled in pessimism but, instead, as that which should be affirmed, even in the face of bad fortune....   [tags: Nietzsche Nihilism Philosophy Essays] 1528 words

Perspectivism and Truth in Nietzsche’s Philosophy: A Critical Look at the Apparent Contradiction - Perspectivism and Truth in Nietzsche’s Philosophy: A Critical Look at the Apparent Contradiction “There are no truths,” states one. “Well, if so, then is your statement true?” asks another. This statement and following question go a long way in demonstrating the crucial problem that any investigator of Nietzsche’s conceptions of perspectivism and truth encounters. How can one who believes that one’s conception of truth depends on the perspective from which one writes (as Nietzsche seems to believe) also posit anything resembling a universal truth (as Nietzsche seems to present the will to power, eternal recurrence, and the Übermensch)....   [tags: Essays Papers]

What Does Nietzsche’s Madman Mean When He Proclaims God is Dead and We Humans Have Killed Him? - “Has he got lost. Did he lose his way like a child. Or is he hiding. Is he afraid of us. Has he gone on a voyage. Emigrated?” No the madman says; “we have killed him – you and I. All of us are his murderers” This exchange encapsulates the aphorism that underpins much of Nietzsche’s thought; that “God is dead”. But what does this mean - What is Nietzsche telling us by claiming that we have murdered God. This essay is going to attempt to try and understand what Nietzsche argues has changed and what hasn’t with the death of God and to examine his critique of 19th century morality in the context of the 21st century politics and see if he offers a constructive alternative to the way we engage in political discourse....   [tags: Theology ] 2371 words

With Christianity came altruism and compelled charity, but moreover, the formation of the congregation where the masses participated in an overwhelming act of self-deception (according to Nietzsche)....   [tags: Friedrich Nietzsche Genealogy of Morals Essays] 1577 words

Nietzsches Superman - Though when most people think of superheroes they think of the type with super powers, the original idea of the ‘superman’ was developed by Friedrich Nietzsche in the 1800s. The ubermensch (literally overman in German) never had extra-ordinary powers and wasn’t developed as the protector of man. Instead, the superman is a person who has overcome all the flaws of mankind and is essentially ‘perfect.’ This idea, though it was thought of as an ideal goal that all people should strive for, has almost completely been used for less-than-good agendas....   [tags: essays research papers] 1055 words
