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.

    The interweavement of philosophy and literature allows to gain a new sense from the own, lived experiences and to express them through narrations, as the paradigmatic works of Nietzsche, Deleuze and Borges show. They all deal with the inexorability of time and the fact of being at the mercy of the unwanted aspects of Being-in-the-world, the detailed reading of which allows us to assert that the event of the emergence of a new sense lies in the experience of the creative (...)

    Entre los años 1869 y 1873, la preocupación de Nietzsche comienza a centrarse en las cuestiones relativas al lenguaje y al conocimiento de forma creciente. Luego de experimentar y ensayar con distintas teorías del lenguaje, Nietzsche adopta el abordaje retórico-lingüístico a partir del año 1872. En efecto, el filósofo alemán primero desarrolla la postura retórica-lingüística en el apunte de clases titulado Descripción de la retórica antigua, y un año más tarde, en el célebre texto póstumo Sobre verdad y mentira en (...)

    The apparent consensus among Nietzsche interpreters is that Nietzsche accepts Schopenhauer’s “description of the ubiquity of suffering” (Gemes 2008, p. 463). In this paper, I argue against this consensus. Specifically, Nietzsche holds that life is not as painful as Schopenhauer makes it out to be, for Nietzsche recognizes two kinds of pleasures that Schopenhauer fails to acknowledge. The only kind of pleasure that Schopenhauer acknowledges is the experience of the cessation of pain that occurs upon the satisfaction of a desire. (...)
