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 & Hardt 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 1961 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.

    This dissertation reads Friedrich Nietzsche as a reader of two French moralists--Francois de la Rocbefoucauld and Sebastien Roch Nicolas Chamfort . The works of Nietzsche's middle period are studied--Human, All too Human , and Daybreak and The Gay Science . The study argues that reading Nietzsche as a descendant of and dissenter from the moralist tradition sheds new light on his thought and brings certain concepts into focus. The key concepts and questions explored are: morality, egoism, vanity and self-love, pity (...)

    Der vorliegende Aufsatz diagnosiziert im Sinne Nietzsche eine Krise des traditionellen Wahrheitsbegriffs, in dem Wahrheit als metaphysische Wahrheit verstanden wurde, die den Wahrheitsbegriffs, in dem Wahrheit als metaphysische Warheit verstanden wurde, die den Wahrheitsträgern zeitlos, zeichenunvermittelt und interperationsunabhängig zukommt. Die Kritik an diesem Verständnis bedient sich sowohl der Unterscheidung zwischen einem engen und einem weiten Sinn als auch der Gegenüberstellung einer alten und einer neuen Rede von Wahrheit. Letztere wird mit Hilfe eines drei-stufigen Modells der Zeichen- und Interpretationsverhältnisse entfaltet. Dadurch (...)

    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 (...)

    Throughout his writings Nietzsche suggests that battles waged with and for the benefit of readers and pupils are to take a form analogous to a Greek agon, a contest. The early Nietzsche anticipates a transfiguration of culture that will be brought about by means of agonistic institutions through which greatness will be cultivated in competition. Nietzsche identifies this mode of activity as healthy human striving, as an affirmative way of claiming human meaning, and as a creative process of individual and (...)

    Paul Raimond Daniels’s Nietzsche and The Birth of Tragedy is an engaging, instructive, and clearly written study of Nietzsche’s first book. It is a particularly fine achievement given the difficulties, in terms of both style and content, that Nietzsche’s text presents to the reader. Daniels’s aim is to present BT as an ideal introduction to Nietzsche’s philosophy, and, in light of its problematizing of the relation between art and truth, to argue that BT is crucial for evaluating the aims, successes, (...)
