About this topic
Summary Friedrich Nietzsche is a 19th century German philosopher. He began his career as a philologist. Due to illness he retired from active academic life as a philologist in the summer of 1879 and devoted himself fully to the writing of his philosophical works. Nietzsche is most famous for his word God is dead. While it is not clear whether this word implies atheism, agnosticism or depth-theism, it shows that theological, metaphysical and moral issues inform the work of Nietzsche. For a long time Nietzsche was considered a philosophical dilettante, a mystic or a poet-philosopher. This view has been significantly altered by Heidegger's Nietzsche lectures from 1936-44 which characterize him as a systematic, metaphysically-oriented philosopher. In the Anglo-American world works of scholars such as Arthur C. Danto and John Richardson have also shown that Nietzsche should be taken seriously as a philosopher. Aside from Nietzsche's metaphysics (which encompasses the concepts of will to power, eternal recurrence, Uebermensch and nihilism), the German philosopher provided an original interpretation and critique of Christian ethics and morality. This work is found in the two major works On The Genealogy Of Morals and Beyond Good And Evil. Throughout his work Nietzsche is in dialogue with the Western philosophical tradition, which he severely criticizes. True to the task of cultural physician he takes upon himself the difficult endeavour of becoming the bad conscience of Western civilization. His main philosophic interlocutors are the Platonic and Xenophonic Socrates, Plato, the Stoics, Kant, Hegel and Schopenhauer.
Key works Danto 1965 A good introduction to Nietzsche's work by a philosopher in the Anglo-American analytical tradition. Contributed to show Nietzsche is to be taken seriously philosophically. Deleuze 2006 A continental reading of Nietzsche's philosophy which challenges the connections between Hegel and Nietzsche established by Heidegger's landmarks lectures on Nietsche. Heidegger 1979 Canonical reading of Nietzsche in the 20th century. This interpretation changed the map and made clear that Nietzsche was a philosopher and perhaps a metaphysician. Heidegger claims that Nietzsche over-turns Platonism and completes Western metaphysics. Löwith 1964 Loewith was a student of Heidegger and a philosopher in his own right. This book and Nietzsche's Philosophy of Eternal Recurrence constitute classical studies of Nietzsche's work based on the historical approach to scholarship.

    Friedrich Nietzsche is typically seen as a radical critic of the western philosophical tradition. This article considers why this image is so widely accepted. It argues that part of the reason for its acceptance is that Nietzsche paints a picture of himself as the independent, radical innovator in his later writings. If we look at the works of the middle period, we find that by contrast, he repeatedly situates himself within wider traditions and discusses what he has learned from them.

    There is much in Robert Pippin’s Nietzsche, Psychology, and First Philosophy that merits consideration. During the panel discussion that provided the basis for this article, I marked several paths for further exploration, including Pippin’s treatment of Nietzsche’s naturalism and his characterization of what he calls Nietzsche’s “picture arguments.” Ultimately, I chose to focus on a concern that has drawn intense interest in the recent literature, namely Nietzsche’s conception of agency and freedom, which forms the subject of Pippin’s fourth chapter, “The (...)

    This paper compares and contrasts Nietzsche's conceptualization of the "artistic Socrates" with Kierkegaard's vision of the "knight of faith". The paper argues that Nietzsche and Kierkegaard attempted to transcend the rational-ethical sphere of human action in favor of a more spontaneous, yet deeper understanding of the universe. Nietzsche believes that the thread of causality and the principle of sufficient reason, embodied as they are in the personality of Socrates, are not capable of explaining our existence in its entirety. Hence he (...)

    In Nietzsche, Psychology, and First Philosophy, Robert Pippin suggests intriguing connections between Nietzsche and the traditional French moralistes, especially Montaigne, Pascal, and La Rochefoucauld. 1 But the point of placing Nietzsche in this company is philosophical, not historical. In contrast to the wide-ranging and detailed historical analyses that have found their place in Pippin’s ongoing history of modernism (Modernism as a Philosophical Problem; Idealism as Modernism: Hegelian Variations), the present book does not focus on repairing our awareness of the French (...)

    In Nietzsche verstehen, Christian Niemeyer aims at “correcting mistaken readings of Nietzsche” (10), by which he means clichéd misunderstandings of Nietzsche as a racist eugenicist, an advocate of a superiority of “German nature,” an anti-Semite, a warmonger, and a nihilistic negator of any ethics. In other words, the book addresses those aspects that portray Nietzsche as a kind of proto-Nazi. In doing so, Niemeyer also exposes the “genealogies” of such misreadings, in good Nietzschean style. He discusses these issues in seven (...)

    According to Krzysztof Michalski, Nietzsche’s intellectual project, from start to finish, has an overarching and unifying theme, namely a reflection on time, including the passing of human life, the emergence of new things, and the general finitude of existence. For him, then, it is possible to organize Nietzsche’s thought into a coherent whole around the concept of “eternity,” where eternity signifies a dimension of time, indeed, the core of it, its essence and engine. Typically, we think of eternity as a (...)
