Nietzsche and The Burden of Historical Change

Beginning Quote:
"All things are subject to
interpretation. Whichever
interpretation prevails at
a given time is a function of
power and not of truth."

-Friedrich Nietzsche

 

From the very beginnning of his academic years to his assignment as professor of philology at Basel University at the ripe old age of twenty-four Nietzsche understood the dangers inherent in epistemological currents.

Nietzsche as Educator

Beginning Quote:
"You have your way. I have
my way. As for the right way ,
the correct way, and the only
way, it does not exist."

-Friedrich Nietzsche

 

It is amazing how the world around us shifts so quickly on a daily basis and as the current technology grows at an evermore blinding speed a multitude of responsibilities and havoc are heaped on each individual who wishes to participate in this existential abstract notion called life.

Nietzsche's Search

Beginning quote:
"We are unknown to ourselves, we
men of knowledge - and with good
reason. We have never sought ourselves -
how could it happen that we should
ever find ourselves?

-Friedrich Nietzsche

 

 

Sigmund Freud on several occasions has said of Friedrich Nietzsche: "That no other man had a more penetrating knowledge of himself than any other man who ever lived or was ever likely to live."

Nietzsche's Sudden Impact

Beginning quote:
"Posthumous men - like me, for instance - are
not so well understood as timely men, but they are
listened to better. More precisely: we are never
understood - and hence our authority..."

-Friedrich Nietzsche

 

Exactly one hundred and thirteen years ago Friedrich Nietzsche died (1900), leaving us with profound questions, theories and anecdotes concerning the pursuit of knowledge, life, morality, and how to live one's life.

The Dove and The Hawk: Beauty vs. Razor Sharp Truth

Beginning quote:
"Everything the state says is a lie, and
everything it has it has stolen"
-Friedrich Nietzsche

 

Good evening America.

 

Universally a dove has always represented beauty, love, caring and above all peace to all nations of the world. The dove even designates western morality - what is 'good' and what is 'bad' or 'evil'.

The Übermensch as Duality

Beginning quote:
"What is good? All that heightes
the feeling of power, the will to power,
power itself. What is bad? All that is
born of weakness. What is happiness?
The feeling that power is growing,
that resistance is overcome."

-Friedrich Nietzsche

 

Good afternoon America.

 

The Übermensch (over-man) has arrived. In fact he has been here since the turn of the last century. America just wasn't listening or watching when this higher being arrived at our shores.
