  • 's Contrast The Heaviest Burden By Nietzsche And Husserl

    This verse has a striking similarity with Nietzsche 's explanation of Gay Science that should carry the heaviest burden. Hafez also believes that this burden is so heavy that even the whole cosmological order could not carry it and flinched from accepting this huge responsibility and transferred it to human. His interpretation of "burden" gives primarily a negativ impression and later a positive one: when one undertakes the burden, first of all, its weight hunches one 's shoulder. But, it is in…

  • Frederick Nietzsche's God Is Dead

    There are few philosophical quotes as well know but misunderstood than Frederick Nietzsche’s quote “God is dead”. This phrase first appeared in an 1882 collection of Nietzsche’s work entitled The Gay Science and since then has be a prime example of the inherent controversy involved with philosophy.

Nature, to German anthropologists before the 20th century was perceived to be a “static system of categories that allowed them, in their study of natural peoples, to grasp an unchanging essence of…

  • Friedrich Nietzsche: Master Morality And Religion

    I want to start off by saying that Friedrich Nietzsche was one of the more complicated philosophers that I ever had pleasure of studying.

  • Nietzsche's Genealogy Of Morals

    In his second essay in the Genealogy of Morals, Nietzsche discusses the creditor/debtor relationship, the resulting bad conscience and most importantly the sovereign individual, “liberated again from morality of custom, autonomous and supra moral” (Nietzsche 59). In fact, Nietzsche further emphasizes that a sovereign person has a “power over oneself and over fate” (Nietzsche 60). I find Nietzsche’s description of this superhuman, sovereign state of mind both interesting and perplexing. I…
