Nietzsche's Challenge: Eternal Recurrence

Journal of Humanistic Psychology (forthcoming)

Can philosophy help to provide insight or understanding in relation to questions and dilemmas frequently encountered in the individual’s life? A blurring of the boundaries between the disciplines of philosophy and psychology may result in the enrichment of both schools of thought, especially as they relate to concrete human experience. This article examines how Nietzsche’s theory of eternal recurrence may be applied to personal experience in everyday life, particularly in relation to the commonly posed question, “am I happy with my life?” An examination of the theory in this context concludes with a “non-philosophical” questioning of its validity and relevance.
