Nietzsche believed that philosophy should be about jumping from one extreme to another extreme and that it should make you angry and ask questions. He identified true morality as there being a right and a wrong, and the right and wrong actions are what allow you to succeed in life. Morality as an anti-nature is people telling you what you shouldn't
His position as a playwriter, novelist, journalist, and literacy critic helped him do so. One of his popular works Existentialism (1945) has significant points that are reflected in the film Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind. In his lecture Existentialism (1945), he says that one can't be defined by any concept; that man is what he makes himself out to be but also only by his will. Jean-Paul believed that we are what we choose to be, and we hold onto anguish (the overwhelming burden of total responsibility). This is evident in the film.
Introduction Fredrick Nietzsche, a German philosopher who came before such varied phenomena as Nazism and postmodernism supported the concepts of individualism, self-reliance, competition, and elitism (Scott, 2014). These are the three terms that sum up the motives for the ongoing controversy over his theories, and the result of Nietzsche questioning the theory of nihilism (Scott, 2014). Nihilism is the understanding the higher values that people and society have undervalued themselves, by which they have become insignificant and outdated. It is the loss of all importance, sense, and purpose (Moroney, 1986). Nihilism is a rational result of corruption, corruption is an inevitable fact of life.
Nietzsche states that concepts, however, are “never the objective grasp of some essence” (Raffoul, 2010, p. 83) and it is not some inherited transcendental knowledge. Concepts were invented by man to make sense of his subjective world. Language and concepts have no anchor in the objective world. It does not come from the ‘real’ world, but from the anthropomorphic world of humans. There’s no objective validity in concepts and are therefore fictitious or false (2010, p. 83).
Nietzsche wrote about some moralists and posits that they just accept their cultures’ morality and serve as its shield bearers rather than as rigorous critics. Nietzsche here specifies that his task is not simply to expose the psychological and historical contingencies that make for different moralities, but to question moralities for their objective functional value. According to Nietzsche, that a particular morality comes from an erroneous, mythical tradition does not by itself tell us that, that morality is worthless just because it has traditionally been falsely conceived. Similarly, the psychological ways that we form moral concepts does not invalidate their claims to objective value. Neither does showing the historical and cultural processes
Aphorism 108 Life is a condition that places us and then we have to make sense out of it. Nietzsche’s claim is cultural claim. It’s not an atheist claim and it’s also not a theological claim because Nietzsche actually believed in God. He stated that the 20th century is involved in new ways of thinking as manifest in speaking. God is dead is the end of an epoch where shared values ruled.
Surprisingly, the rationalist who rejected religion and established the phrase ‘God is dead’ was brought up from a line of clergy men. Nietzsche father died when he was just four years of age, which left him in the hands of his mother, Franziska, his paternal grandma, Erdmuthe, his father's two sisters, Auguste and Rosalie, and his younger sister, Therese. From the beginning, Nietzsche’s life had already taken a decisive form. Early on he got conversant with the music of Richard Wagner, whose appealing art and personality got his attention. This eventually prompted an intimate relationship between the two, who both shared a desire and eagerness for the philosophical works of Arthur Schopenhauer.
This paper aims to shed light to the problems of the modern industrial society brought about by technology as supposed by Theodore Kaczynski. The paper would analyze Kaczynski’s stand on the matters of the society by contrasting and analyzing his thought with the existentialist thoughts of Martin Heidegger. This research shall tackle the three themes of existentialist philosophy, namely: freedom, anxiety and authenticity as found in the writings of Martin Heidegger in connection to the problems of the Industrial Society as presented by Theodore Kaczynski. The main focus of this research is on man and how he is affected by the changes in the technological advancements of the Industrial Society. The research shall answer the questions: What are
This theory has its root in the romantic-socialistic actions that discovers free will and self-governance as the basic man nature. In “Logotherapy and Existentialism” Frankl tries to reconstruct a prevalent definition in existentialist approach, “being in the world”. Several scholars have used this word in diverse aspects and Frankl tries to offer a true significance that can be applied. The term is applied in many aspects with the utmost significant is its application in Logotherapy. After the term was misconstrued the term Logotherapy followed.
There are great philosophers who have influenced us both positively and contrarily, thinkers like Aristotle, Plato and a few others yet today we will concentrate on a certain logician by name Friedrich Nietzsche. The philosopher was born on October 15, 1844, in rocken bei Lutzen, Germany (Fredrich Nietzche, 2014). In one of his moving and splendid yet moderately succinct job, he has conveyed different noteworthy works of hypothesis, including the book twilight of the idols and thus spoke Zarathustra (Fredrich Nietzsche, 2014).in the most recent decade of his life he experienced madness after which he kicked the bucket on August25, 1900. His compositions and profound quality in contemporary human advancement impacted numerous real scholars/journalists of the 20th century.Friedrich Nietzsche challenged the foundations of Christianity and traditional
