Friedrich Wilhelm Nietzsche (10/1844-08/1900) was a German philosopher whose philosophy centered on the foundation of values and morality.

I know my fate. One day my name will be associated with the memory of something tremendous - a crisis without equal on earth, the most profound collision of conscience, a decision that was conjured up against everything that had been believed, demanded, hallowed so far. I am no man, I am dynamite.

To find everything profound - that is an inconvenient trait. It makes one strain one's eyes all the time, and in the end one finds more than one might have wished.

We are always in our own company.

The doctrine of equality! There is no more venomous poison in existence: for it appears to be preached by justice itself, when it is actually the end of justice. "Equality to the equal; inequality to the unequal" - that would be true justice speaking: and its corollary, "never make the unequal equal".

When someone hides something behind a bush and looks for it again in the same place and finds it there as well, there is not much to praise in such seeking and finding. Yet this is how matters stand regarding seeking and finding "truth" within the realm of reason. If I make up the definition of a mammal, and then, after inspecting a camel, declare "look, a mammal' I have indeed brought a truth to light in this way, but it is a truth of limited value. That is to say, it is a thoroughly anthropomorphic truth which contains not a single point which would be "true in itself" or really and universally valid apart from man. At bottom, what the investigator of such truths is seeking is only the metamorphosis of the world into man.

My dear friend, what is this our life? A boat that swims in the sea, and all one knows for certain about it is that one day it will capsize. Here we are, two good old boats that have been faithful neighbors, and above all your hand has done its best to keep me from "capsizing"! Let us then continue our voyage - each for the other's sake, for a long time yet, a long time! We should miss each other so much! Tolerably calm seas and good winds and above all sun - what I wish for myself, I wish for you, too, and am sorry that my gratitude can find expression only in such a wish and has no influence at all on wind or weather!

Pardon me, my friends, I have ventured to paint my happiness on the wall.

    @Kinski_ And you are just another boring keyboard-warrior, thread-flaming and insignificant troll who doesn't even know that subhumans do not exist. We are all humans in the first place. Go back to elementary school irrational kid, and come back with some kind of decent argument, 10 years later. Unitl then, the joke's on you.

    הפילוסוף האירופי הגדול ביותר של המודרניות ... כנראה. חשבתי שלו היה כמו סערה באירופה הישנה. חשיבה זו שימשה זרע לכל דבר כמעט. ספריו היו משמשים כדי להחזיק את כל הטיעונים וכל. אני מכבד אותו אבל מרחם עליו.

    @ alienhated In short, the apollonian/dionysian is not necessarily a dualism. One can have aspects of both. However, obviously Nietzsche preferred the dionysian lifestyle which is more hedonistic and promiscuous. This lead him to contract syphilis (possibly from a whore in Italy or Switzerland) in the late 1870's or early 1880's something that ultimately drove him crazy in 1888. 'Ecce Homo' ('88) are just the hopeless and megalomaniac Swan song lines of a dying madman.

    Now I remember that the dionysian may be used exactly to argue the opposite, that is, the difference, because it is related to the intuitive, while the apollonian to the abstract, that is the identification of various things in one concept whch implies necessarily that we ignore the differences between things. May this be one of nietzsche contradictions?

    The ubermensch, I think is: the total acceptance of life even if completely devoid of meaning, truth, etc etc; the acceptance of the eternal return; "becoming what you are"; the philosopher as rule maker; life as art, or as "the work of art".

    Natebag. " People calling him 'progressive egalitarian' and 'fascist'. Some interpretations are simply better than others, but no interpretation is complete." I agree. And I think he has a little of both those 2. in one level, apollonian one (order, stability), nobody is equal, we are all born different from each other, but on the other, dionysian one (chaos, change), we are all individuations of the same "will", therefore being the same deep beneath. But the world isn't just one of them, it's both. Truth would lie in the dionysian, falsehood in apollonian. Us, humans, normally think the opposite, that apollonian is the truth and falsehood. He would prefer the dionysian beacause it is more true, or is a better lie.
