Was Afrikan Spir a Phenomenalist?: And What Difference Does It Make for Understanding Nietzsche?

Journal of Nietzsche Studies 46 (2):152-176 (2015)
This article is a response to Nadeem Hussain’s criticisms of the reading of Afrikan Spir and Nietzsche that I offered in Nietzsche and the Transcendental Tradition.1 My primary goal in writing the book was making sense of Nietzsche’s falsification thesis: his view that all our judgments about the world are false. My approach was initially ahistorical. Since Nietzsche’s own arguments for the thesis were so elliptically formulated, could I come up with any plausible ones myself? Perhaps the thesis was similar to J. L. Mackie’s error theory about moral judgments. Or maybe Nietzsche thought all judgments misdescribe the way judgments predicating..
