    Nietzsche's Critique of Democracy (1870–1886).H. W. Siemens - 2009 - Journal of Nietzsche Studies 38 (1):20-37.
    This article reconstructs Nietzsche's shifting views on democracy in the period 1870–86 with reference to his enduring preoccupation with tyrannical concentrations of power and the conviction that radical pluralism offers the only effective form of resistance. As long as he identifies democracy with pluralism , he sympathizes with it as a site of resistance and emancipation. From around 1880 on, however, Nietzsche increasingly links it with tyranny, in the form of popular sovereignty, and with the promotion of uniformity, to the (...)

    Nietzsche and the Empirical: Through the Eyes of the Term ‘Empfindung’.H. W. Siemens - 2006 - South African Journal of Philosophy 25 (2):146-158.
    This paper examines Nietzsche's attitude to the empirical by concentrating on his concept of Empfindung (sensation, perception, feeling). In Section 1, five distinctive features of his use of 'Empfindung' are described in relation to the philosophical tradition and some of his sources in 19 th Century physiology. All five features, I argue, point to Nietzsche's philosophical concern to stake out the limits of 'Empfindung' as an aspect of human finitude. In Section 2, my attention turns from the term 'Empfindung' to (...)

    Nietzsche's Hammer: Philosophy, Destruction, or the Art of Limited Warfare.H. W. Siemens - 1998 - Tijdschrift Voor Filosofie 60 (2):321 - 347.
    The question posed in this paper concerns destruction: What part, if any, does destruction play in Nietzsche's life-project of critical transvaluation? Nietzsche's project, I argue, involves a total critique of Western values in the name of life, yet this does not entail total violence: the destruction of antagonistic values. Violent, destructive impulses cannot be subtracted from his thought; the question is whether they make for destruction as the goal of critique (I). Nietzsche's reflections on „critical history” are used to show (...)
