Break-Out from the Crystal Palace: The Anarcho-Psychological Critique: Stirner, Nietzsche, Dostoevsky (Rouledge Library Editions: Friedrich Nietzsche)

Break-Out from the Crystal Palace: The Anarcho-Psychological Critique: Stirner, Nietzsche, Dostoevsky (Rouledge Library Editions: Friedrich Nietzsche)

Before Marcuse and Laing, before Heidegger and Sartre, even before Freud, the way was prepared for the anarcho-psychological critique of economic man, of all codes of ideology or absolute morality, and of scientific habits of mind. First published in 1974, this title traces this philosophical tradition to its roots in the nineteenth century, to the figures of Stirner, Nietzsche and Dostoevsky, and to their psychological demolition of the two alternative axes of social theory and practice, a critique which today reads more pertinently than ever, and remains unanswered. To understand this critique is crucial for an age which has shown a mounting revulsion at the consequences of the Crystal Palace, symbol at once of technologico-industrial progress and its rationalist-scientist ideology, an age whose imaginative preoccupations have telescoped onto the individual, and whose interest has switched from the social realm to that of anarchic, inner, 'psychological man'.

Friedrich Nietzsche and the Politics of the Soul: A Study of Heroic Individualism

Friedrich Nietzsche and the Politics of the Soul: A Study of Heroic Individualism

Reading Nietzsche's works as the "political biography of his soul," Leslie Thiele presents an original and accessible essay on the great thinker's attempt to lead a heroic life as a philosopher, artist, saint, educator, and solitary. He takes as his point of departure Nietzsche's conception of the soul as a multiplicity of conflicting drives and personae, and focuses on the task Nietzsche allotted himself "to make a cosmos out of his chaotic inheritance." This struggle to "become what you are" by way of a spiritual politics is demonstrated to be Nietzsche's foremost concern, which fused his philosophy with his life. The book offers a conversation with Nietzsche rather than a consideration of the secondary literature, yet it takes to task many prevalent approaches to his work, and contests especially the way we often restrict our encounter with him to conceptual analysis. All deconstructionist attempts to portray him as solely concerned with the destruction of the subject and the dispersion of the self, rather than its unification, are called into question. Often portrayed as the champion of nihilism, Nietzsche here emerges as a thinker who saw his primary task as the overcoming of nihilism through the heroic struggle of individuation.

Friedrich Nietzsche: La Genealogia de La Moral (Spanish Edition)

Seminar paper del a o 2008 en eltema Filosof a - Filosof a del siglo XIX, impresion en un solo lado, Nota: 1,0, - (Universidad de La Laguna), Idioma: Espa ol, Resumen: Esta obra de Friedrich Nietzsche, que consiste en un Proemio y tres Tratados, forma parte de sus escrituras con m xima influencia. No pregunta como los humanos deben actuar, sino porque la gente (individuos o grupos) cree, que se deba actuar de una manera espec fica o quiere motivar a los dem s de actuar de esta manera. Quiz s lo m s famoso de la obra es la divisi n entre? moral de esclavos" y? moral de caballeros " del Primer Tratado. El motivo central de la obra de Nietzsche a m parece el sufrimiento. La voluntad del poder comporta el sufrimiento, este es el conocimiento horrible, dice Nietzsche de una manera dion sica. Toda moral, toda vista de la vida que quiere eliminar el sufrimiento, tambi n rechaza la voluntad del poder y por eso la vida s misma. La debildad de la modernidad, su decadencia, es entonces el odio del sufrimiento, o su ignoraci n. Este tema del sufrimiento tambi n explica la antit sis de la moral de los caballeros y la moral de la manada. Aqu Nietzsche vive tambi n su fanatismo de la? veracidad", que significa el impulso de mostrar el sufrimiento del mundo hasta el punto final. La sociedad humana es basado en crimenes horribles, y eso siempre va a quedar as. Los athenienses, por ejemplo, eran al mismo tiempo de una crueldad y una cultura inmensa. Pero la moral de la manada es basado en odio y venganza, y su cultura (contra el sufrimiento) toma la v a de la decadencia y del nihilismo. Est claro que Nietzsche en este momento no es un hist rico en el sentido de la palabra, sino quiere entender el ente de la vida y del mundo mientras analiza la conexi n inseparable de la vida y del sufrimiento. El sufrimiento m s grande tiene lugar en la persona buscando el conocimiento, l, que toma la voluntad del poder en su origen. La filosof a s misma es una m scara para poder aguantar e

Dawn: Thoughts on the Presumptions of Morality, Vol. 5 (The Complete Works of Friedrich Nietzsche)

Dawn: Thoughts on the Presumptions of Morality, Vol. 5 (The Complete Works of Friedrich Nietzsche)

Dawn is the most recent volume to appear in the first complete, critical, and annotated English edition of all of Nietzsche's work. The edition, organized originally by Ernst Behler and Bernd Magnus, is a translation of the celebrated Kritische Studienausgabe in 15 B nden (1980) edited by Giorgio Colli and Mazzino Montinari. The book is the first to appear under the editorial direction of Alan D. Schrift, Keith Ansell-Pearson, and Duncan Large, and to incorporate subsequent corrections to the 1980 edition. Continuing the positivistic turn of Human, All Too Human, Dawn is the second installment in the free spirit trilogy that culminated in The Joyful Science. One of Nietzsche's "yes-saying" books, it marks his first significant confrontation with morality and offers glimpses of many of the signature themes in his mature works. Dawn has come to be admired in recent years for its ethical naturalism, psychological observations, and therapeutic insights. Presented in Nietzsche's aphoristic style, it is a text with hidden riches, one that must be read between the lines and one that the discerning reader will admire and cherish.

Friedrich Nietzsche

One of the most controversial influences that Nietzsche had was on the Nazi party and Hitler's personality because Nietzcshe's theories were the bases of Hitler's ayran race. Some people, think that Neitzche's philosphies were used as a guide for hitler's destruction. . Nietzsche influenced George Brandes who developed a philosophy called "aristricatic radicalism" which was inspired by Nietzsche's Overman theory. Nietzsche also influenced Sigmund Frued and Carl Jung, two great psychologists, in admiration and credited him with many insights into human's character. Nietzsche also influenced many authors of fiction and poetry. He inspired drama plays, and helped people better understand the behavior of the human.

The Philosophy of Friedrich Nietzsche

The Philosophy of Friedrich Nietzsche

This historic book may have numerous typos and missing text. Purchasers can usually download a free scanned copy of the original book (without typos) from the publisher. Not indexed. Not illustrated. 1908 edition. Excerpt: . VIII CIVILIZATION On the surface, at least, the civilization of today seems to be moving slowly toward two goals. One is the eternal renunciation of war and the other is universal brotherhood: one is "peace on earth" and the other is "good will to men." Five hundred years ago a statesman's fame rested frankly and solely upon the victories of his armies; today we profess to measure him by his skill at keeping these armies in barracks. And in the internal economy of all civilized states we find today some pretence at unrestricted and equal suffrage. In times past it was the chief concern of all logicians and wiseacres to maintain the proposition that God reigned. At present, the dominant platitude of Christendom - the cornerstone of practically every political party and the stock-intrade of every politician - is the proposition that the people rule. Nietzsche opposed squarely both the demand for peace and the demand for equality, and his opposition was grounded upon two arguments. In the first place, he said, both demands were rhetorical and insincere and all intelligent men knew that neither would ever be fully satisfied. In the second place, he said, it would be ruinous to the race if they were. That is to say, he believed that war was not only necessary, but also beneficial, and that the natural system of castes was not only beneficent, but also inevitable. In the demand for universal peace he saw only the yearning of the weak and useless for protection against the righteous exploitation of the useful and strong. In the demand for equality he saw only the same thing. Both demands, he argued, controverted and combated that upward tendency which finds expression in the law of natural selection. "The order of castes," said Nietzsche, ".

Thus Spoke Zarathustra: The First Book to Understand Friedrich Nietzsche (Chinese Edition)

Written in the form of a prose narrative, Thus Spake Zarathustra offers the philosophy of its author through the voice of Zarathustra who, after years of meditation, has come down from a mountain to offer his wisdom to the world. It is this work in which Nietzsche made his famous statement that "God is dead" and in which he presented some of the most influential and well-known ideas of his philosophy, including those of the Ubermensch and the "will to power." Though this is essentially a work of philosophy, it is also a masterpiece of literature. The book is a combination of prose and poetry, including epigrams, dithyrambs, and parodies as well as sections of pure poetry.

A Companion to Friedrich Nietzsche (Studies in German Literature Linguistics and Culture)

A Companion to Friedrich Nietzsche (Studies in German Literature Linguistics and Culture)

Nietzsche looms over modern literature and thought; according to Gottfried Benn, "everything my generation discussed, thought through innerly; one could say: suffered; or one could even say: took to the point of exhaustion - all of it had already been said. by Nietzsche; all the rest was just exegesis." Nietzsche's influence on intellectual life today is arguably as great; witness the various societies, journals, and websites and the steady stream of papers, collections, and monographs. This Companion offers new essays from the best Nietzsche scholars, emphasizing the interrelatedness of his life and thought, eschewing a superficial biographical method but taking seriously his claim that great philosophy is "the self-confession of its author and a kind of unintended and unremarked memoir." Each essay examines a major work by Nietzsche; together, they offer an advanced introduction for students of German Studies, philosophy, and comparative literature as well as for the lay reader. Re-establishing the links between Nietzsche's philosophical texts and their biographical background, the volume alerts Nietzsche scholars and intellectual historians to the internal development of his thought and the aesthetic construction of his identity as a philosopher.

Infinite Autonomy: The Divided Individual in the Political Thought of G.W.F. Hegel and Friedrich Nietzsche

Infinite Autonomy: The Divided Individual in the Political Thought of G.W.F. Hegel and Friedrich Nietzsche

G.W.F. Hegel and Friedrich Nietzsche are often considered the philosophical antipodes of the nineteenth century. In Infinite Autonomy, Jeffrey Church draws on the thinking of both Hegel and Nietzsche to assess the modern Western defense of individuality?to consider whether we were right to reject the ancient model of community above the individual. The theoretical and practical implications of this project are important, because the proper defense of the individual allows for the survival of modern liberal institutions in the face of non-Western critics who value communal goals at the expense of individual rights. By drawing from Hegelian and Nietzschean ideas of autonomy, Church finds a third way for the individual?what he calls the? historical individual,? which goes beyond the disagreements of the ancients and the moderns while nonetheless incorporating their distinctive contributions.

Human, All Too Human II and Unpublished Fragments from the Period of Human, All Too Human II (Spring 1878?Fall 1879): Volume 4 (The Complete Works of Friedrich Nietzsch)

Human, All Too Human II and Unpublished Fragments from the Period of Human, All Too Human II (Spring 1878?Fall 1879): Volume 4 (The Complete Works of Friedrich Nietzsch)

Volume 4 of The Complete Works of Friedrich Nietzsche contains two works, Mixed Opinions and Maxims (1879) and The Wanderer and His Shadow (1880), originally published separately, then republished together in the 1886 edition of Nietzsche's works. They mingle aphorisms drawn from notebooks of 1875-79, years when worsening health forced Nietzsche toward an increasingly solitary existence. Like its predecessor, Human, All Too Human II is above all an act of resistance not only to the intellectual influences that Nietzsche felt called upon to critique, but to the basic physical facts of his daily life. It turns an increasingly sharply formulated genealogical method of analysis toward Nietzsche's persistent concerns?metaphysics, morality, religion, art, style, society, politics and culture. The notebook entries included here offer a window into the intellectual sources behind Nietzsche's evolution as a philosopher, the reading and self-reflection that nourished his lines of thought. The linking of notebook entries to specific published aphorisms, included in the notes, allows readers of Nietzsche in English to trace for the first time the intensive process of revision through which he transformed raw notebook material into the finely crafted sequences of aphoristic reflection that signal his distinctiveness as a philosophical stylist.

Marine Lover of Friedrich Nietzsche (European Perspectives)

Marine Lover of Friedrich Nietzsche (European Perspectives)

Published in France in 1980, Marine Lover is the first in a trilogy in which Luce Irigaray links the interrogation of the feminine in post-Hegelian philosophy with a pre-Socratic investigation of the elements. Irigaray undertakes to interrogate Nietzche, the grandfather of poststructuralist philosophy, from the point of view of water. According to Irigaray, water is the element Nietzsche fears most. She uses this element in her narrative because for her there is a complex relationship between the feminine and the fluid. Irigaray's method is to engage in an amorous dialogue with the male philosopher. In this dialogue, she ruptures conventional discourse and writes in a lyrical style that defies distinction between theory, fiction, and philosophy.

Friedrich Nietzsche

Friedrich Nietzsche

The decisive influence of Friedrich Nietzsche on H.L. Mencken is readily acknowledged in the vast literature on the great American journalist and social critic. However, Mencken's 1908 study of the philosopher has been relegated to footnote status by Mencken's critics and biographers and has been largely ignored by Nietzsche scholars. There are good reasons for reversing this judgment. Mencken's work was one of the first comprehensive and sympathetic treatments of Nietzsche's thought in the English language. It is a provocative engagement with the German philosopher's complex and elusive ideas, enhanced by a style that reverberates with a verve and dynamism approaching Nietzsche's own. Mencken presents a view of Nietzsche that elucidates the latter's complex and contentious form of the "gospel of individualism" while evincing a keen appreciation of his unrivalled capacity for critical analysis. The historical scope of Nietzsche's thought is fully evident in Mencken's analysis as is its application to modern societies and politics. In tracing the biographical and intellectual impetus for Nietzsche's relentless attacks on conventional moralities and established modes of thought, Mencken discerned both an ideal and a method for grappling with social and cultural issues that remain salient in our own time.

The Mystical Enlightenment Of Friedrich Nietzsche: On the death of God and the God within

The Mystical Enlightenment Of Friedrich Nietzsche: On the death of God and the God within

The genius philosopher Friedrich Nietzsche (1844? 1900) was far ahead of his time when he envisioned the challenges and pitfalls of the growing secular world. This world, he claimed, had 'killed God,' and by doing so, had created a terrible vacuum of meaninglessness and nihilism. Hence, as Nietzsche stated, mankind must now take on the duty and responsibility of filling the world with a new inner meaning and new ethical content out of his new love of life. Nietzsche referred to the one who would be able to withstand such an awesome task as the bermensch (super-man), a new type of man who would result from a true evolutionary leap. 'The Mystical Enlightenment of Friedrich Nietzsche' is Shai Tubali's attempt at continuing and expanding Nietzsche's enormous endeavor so that mankind can acquire the tools necessary to form the long-expected 'super-man' from within. Shai delves into the exciting result of the creation of the? super-man,? which is an authentic spiritual world that flourishes and thrives precisely because the God of religions perished; it is a world where Darwin merges with the Buddha, mystical enlightenment blends with evolution, and a great union between genuine spirituality and genuine secularity occurs. This book is suitable for both advanced readers of Nietzsche and for those who have never encountered his teachings. Shai Tubali is a spiritual teacher from a Yogic tradition and a free thinker who lives and teaches in Germany. He has been lecturing for the past thirteen years in Israel and Germany while developing methods of psychological and spiritual transformation. He has written fifteen books on spiritual transformation and practical philosophy in the Hebrew language, and he is the author of 'TheSeven Wisdoms of Life' and 'The Missing Revolution' which also appeared in English.

The Philosophy of Friedrich Nietzsche

The first book on Nietzsche ever to appear in English, this examination by legendary journalist H.L. Mencken is still one of the most enlightening. Mencken wrote this book while still in his 20s, but his penchant for thoroughness was evident even at that young age?in preparation for writing this book, he read Nietzsche's works in their entirety, mostly in the original German. A brief biographical sketch is followed by clear and thorough explanations of Nietzsche's basic concepts and attitudes. Analyzed are Nietzsche's much-misunderstood concept of the superman, his concept of eternal recurrence, his rejection of Christianity, and his basic rationalism and materialism. Included are two essays on Nietzsche that appeared in Mencken's magazine The Smart Set subsequent to the publishing of the original edition of this book. Nearly a century after its original publication, this remains one of the clearest, most concise, and entertaining introductions to Nietzsche to date.

Beyond Good and Evil / On the Genealogy of Morality: Volume 8 (The Complete Works of Friedrich Nietzsch)

Beyond Good and Evil / On the Genealogy of Morality: Volume 8 (The Complete Works of Friedrich Nietzsch)

Beyond Good and Evil is Nietzsche's first sustained philosophical treatment of issues important to him. Unlike the expository prose of the essayistic period (1872-76), the stylized forays and jabs of the aphoristic period (1878-82), and the lyrical-philosophical rhetoric of the Zarathustra-period (1882-85), Beyond Good and Evil inscribes itself boldly into the history of philosophy, challenging ancient and modern notions of philosophy's achievements and insisting on a new task for "new philosophers." This is a watershed book for Nietzsche and for philosophy in the modern era. On the Genealogy of Morality applies Nietzsche's celebrated genealogical method, honed in the earlier aphoristic writings, to the problem of morality's influence on the human species. In three treatises that strikingly anticipate insights appearing much later in Freud's Civilization and Its Discontents (1930), Nietzsche provides an anthropological psychograph of our species, revealing the origins of the concepts of good and evil, the roles played by guilt and bad conscience, and the persistence of ascetic ideals. Manifesting a hopeful yet unsentimental assessment of the human condition, these books resonated throughout the 20th century and continue to exert broad appeal.

Unpublished Writings from the period of Unfashionable Observations: Volume 11 (The Complete Works of Friedrich Nietzsche)

This is the third volume to appear in an edition that will be the first complete, critical, and annotated English translation of all of Nietzsche's work. Volume 2: Unfashionable Observations, translated by Richard T. Gray, was published in 1995; Volume 3: Human, All Too Human (I) , translated by Gary Handwerk, was published in 1997. The edition is a new English translation, by various hands, of the celebrated Colli-Montinari edition, which has been acclaimed as one of the most important works of scholarship in the humanities in the last half century. The present volume provides for the first time English translations of all of Nietzsche's unpublished notebooks from the summer of 1872 to the end of 1874. The major works published in this period were the first three Unfashionable Observations: "David Strauss the Confessor and the Writer," "On the Utility and Liability of History for Life," and "Schopenhauer as Educator." Translations of the preliminary notes for these pieces are coordinated with the translations of the published texts printed in Volume 2: Unfashionable Observations. The content of these notebooks goes far beyond the notes and plans for published and unpublished Unfashionable Observations, encompassing numerous sketches related to Nietzsche's major philological project from this period, a book on the pre-Platonic Greek philosophers. The ideas that emerged from Nietzsche's deliberations on these early Greek thinkers are absolutely central to his thought from this period and contribute in significant ways to the development of several of his major themes: the role of the philosopher vis vis his age and the surrounding culture; the relationships among philosophy, art, and culture; the metaphorical nature of language and its relationship to knowledge; the unmasking of the modern drive for absolute "truth" as a palliative against the horror of existence; and Nietzsche's "unfashionable" attack on modern science and modern culture, especially on the Germany of the Bismarck Reich. These notebooks represent important transitional documents in Nietzsche's intellectual development, marking, among other things, the shift away from philological studies toward unabashed cultural criticism.

The Selected Writings of Friedrich Nietzsche

The Selected Writings of Friedrich Nietzsche

Collected here in this omnibus edition are three of Nietzsche's three most important books: The Anti-Christ, Beyond Good and Evil, and Thus Spake Zarathustra, as well as The Philosophy of Friedrich Nietzsche by Henry Louis Mencken. A perfect book for new readers of Nietzsche or anyone hoping to understand his writing and philosophy more thoroughly. The Philosophy of Friedrich Nietzsche by Henry Louis Mencken was the first, and many believe the best book on the subject. Mencken was known for his attention to detail. This book is a must read for anyone who wishes to understand Nietzche and his underlying philosophy. Thus Spake Zarathustra is a masterpiece of philosophical literature, and it is here that Nietzsche uttered the famous phrase "God is dead!" This powerful book spells out Nietzsche's belief in the will to power, and serves as an introduction to his doctrine of eternal return. One of the most influential books of philosophy ever written. Nietzsche writes with style, power, and conviction. In Beyond Good and Evil, Nietzsche attacks past philosophers for their alleged lack of critical sense and their blind acceptance of the Christian premises in their consideration of morality. The work attempts to moves "beyond good and evil" in the sense of leaving behind the traditional morality which Nietzsche subjects to a destructive critique in favor of what he regards as an affirmative approach that fearlessly confronts the perspectival nature of knowledge and the perilous condition of the modern individual. Here is Friedrich Nietzsche's great masterpiece The Anti-Christ, wherein Nietzsche attacks Christianity as a blight on humanity. This classic is essential reading for anyone wishing to understand Nietzsche and his place within the history of philosophy.

One of Nietzsche's "yes-saying" books, it marks his first significant confrontation with morality and offers glimpses of many of the signature themes in his mature works. Dawn has come to be admired in recent years for its ethical naturalism, psychological observations, and therapeutic insights. Presented in Nietzsche's aphoristic style, it is a text with hidden riches, one that must be read between the lines and one that the discerning reader will admire and cherish.

Feminist Interpretations of Friedrich Nietzsche (Re-Reading the Canon)

Feminist Interpretations of Friedrich Nietzsche (Re-Reading the Canon)

Nietzsche has the reputation of being a virulent misogynist, so why are feminists interested in his philosophy? The essays in this volume provide answers to this question from a variety of feminist perspectives. The organization of the volume into two sets of essays, "Nietzsche's Use of Woman" and "Feminists' Use of Nietzsche," reflects the two general approaches taken to the issue of Nietzsche and woman. First, many debates have focused on how to interpret Nietzsche's remarks about women and femininity. Are all of Nietzsche's comments to be read literally, or is he being ironic, perhaps even parodying and subverting stereotypes about women? Second, is his philosophy useful to feminist theory? Can we separate his philosophy from his seemingly derogatory remarks about women? Can feminists use his criticisms of truth, objectivity, reason, and the autonomous subject to challenge the exclusion of women from the history of philosophy? Some view his critiques of dualism and essentialism as well as his perspectivism and social constructivism as adumbrating later feminist positions. Others find troubling his privileging of masculinity and paradigms of domination; they see Nietzsche's sexual dualism as countering otherwise transgressive themes. Contributors are Debra Bergoffen, Maudmarie Clark, Daniel Conway, Jacques Derrida, Jean Graybeal, Kathleen Higgins, Luce Irigaray, Sarah Kofman, Tamsin Lorraine, Kelly Oliver, David Owen, Marilyn Pearsall, Ofelia Schutte, Linda Singer, Lynne Tirrell, and Kathleen Wininger.

The Three Stigmata of Friedrich Nietzsche: Political Physiology in the Age of Nihilism

The Three Stigmata of Friedrich Nietzsche: Political Physiology in the Age of Nihilism

Following Nietzsche?s call for a philosopher-physician and his own use of the bodily language of health and illness as tools to diagnose the ailments of the body politic, this book offers a reconstruction of the concept of political physiology in Nietzsche?s thought, bridging gaps between Anglo-American, German and French schools of interpretation.

Friedrich Nietzsche

Friedrich Nietzsche

In this book, a number of human problems are explored and discussed in relation to the brilliant but haunted biography of the 19th century philosopher, Friedrich Nietzsche. The problem of good and evil, the search for personal truth, the questions of nihilism and life?s meaning, and the dangers of self-inflation in the wake of religious experience are each considered in this in-depth psychological analysis. The author sheds new light on Nietzsche?s extraordinary life and work, illuminating many aspects of his personal spiritual struggle, while providing insights into some of the most basic and problematic questions that confront us all.

Friedrich Nietzsche and the Politics of History (Ideas in Context)

Friedrich Nietzsche and the Politics of History (Ideas in Context)

This book explores Friedrich Nietzsche's understanding of modern political culture and his position in the history of modern political thought. Surveying Nietzsche's entire intellectual career from his years as a student in Bonn and Leipzig during the 1860s to his genealogical project of the 1880s, Christian Emden contributes to a historically informed discussion of Nietzsche's response to the political predicaments of modernity, and sheds new light on the intellectual and political culture in Germany as the ideals of the Enlightenment gave way to the demands of the modern nation state. This is a distinguished addition to the series of Ideas in Context, and a major reassessment of a philosopher and aphorist whose stature among post-enlightenment European thinkers is now almost unrivalled.

The Will to Beauty, Being a Continuation of the Philosophies of Arthur Schopenhauer and Friedrich Nietzsche (Classic Reprint)

The Will to Beauty, Being a Continuation of the Philosophies of Arthur Schopenhauer and Friedrich Nietzsche (Classic Reprint)

From ancient times an undercurrent of tragedy surged. The beautiful fables of Greece that glorified the human relations to the height of gods that dwelt in Olympus yielded in helplessness in Greek tragedy. The CE dipus of Sophocles shows to us how the attempt to solve the riddle of life ends in a sea of dire woe; and in A nathema, the modern tragic drama of Leonid A ndreyev, the speechless one veiled in gray is as unyielding to entreaty as the silent sphinx of old. Hellenic beauty, because it was incomplete, had to descend and disintegrate itself. Down and down it went until it reached the religion of sorrow. The unconscious Will of the universe was not satisfied with a fable, it needed further amplification in fact and clear reason. It had to descend to the prose of modern science and mechanist invention, to Darwin, to the doctrine of utility of Spencer, to the mathematical philosophy of Kant. From the Greek oracle to the dark seance rooms of modern spiritualism, until it could rebound and the scattered fragments be integrated in the present Will to Beauty. The Greek mythos of beauty is now reborn into a philosophy based on clear reason instead of fable. This is the New Hellenism to which the religions of human suffering must yield.

Friedrich Nietzsche (German Edition)

Friedrich Nietzsche (German Edition)

Friedrich Nietzsche, der umstrittene Philosoph und? Seelen-Errater", war einer der Wegbereiter der Tiefenpsychologie. Ihm geb hrt das Verdienst, wesentliche Einsichten in die Psychodynamik unbewusster Vorg nge vorweggenommen zu haben. Sein Werk birgt auch heute noch berraschende und provozierende Gedanken. S. Freud spricht in seiner? Selbstdarstellung" von Nietzsche als von einem Philosophen, ?dessen Ahnungen und Einsichten sich oft in der erstaunlichsten Weise mit den m hsamen Ergebnissen der Psychoanalyse decken." Und C.G. Jung schreibt, bei allem sonstigen kritischen Vorbehalt: ?Sein alles durchdringendes psychologisches Urteil gab mir eine tiefe Einsicht in das, was Psychologie zu leisten vermag." Gerhard Wehr zeigt in diesem Band, worin Nietzsches tiefenpsychologische Erkenntnisse bestehen. Unter diesen Gesichtspunkten hat er auch die psychologischen Texte aus dem Gesamtwerk des Philosophen ausgew hlt und kommentiert.
