"I realized that I didn't make a mistake. I was made of mistakes. People are made of mistakes. This is what people are made of. Remember that people are made up of stars, our own celestial bodies, what comprises others incredibly out of reach yet twinkling in the distance, preconceived and premature, and yet we ourselves are made of the same cosmic dust-to-dust. Always remember, also, the universe was made by accident. And it all makes sense, because she is my sunbeam."
What did he tried to convey?
I can't believe we celebrate this fucking hack. Luckily, I realise that Analytical philosophy is the only philosphy worth reading. Why would I want to read the writings of mentally unstable obscurantists?
He writes about life cycles, supermen and overcoming strife. He is a fucking fantasy author who wrote no fantasy. He would be a LARPer if he was alive today. Disgusting that we pay so much attention to his bullshit.
I read Beyond Good and Evil, Genealogy and The Twighlight of the Idols. Very poor obscure poeticisms masquerading as philosophy. I have no desire to pander to you trickster fetishists.
"Hannalore Annelise wore makeup like wood glue. I was the qawky, gangly teenager, with limbs like freshly washed baby carrots, starting at square tile one of the high school entrance. I had a stack of books the size of two Infinite Jests and a paperback The Girl With Curious Hair. I was looking her, dead, in the eyes."
Thomas Pynchon on page 234 of Gravity's Rainbow
The math is too much for me. What does it mean?
Worth? What do you mean? What are you looking for by reading philosophy?
His thoughts changed history and influenced some (if not most) intellectuals and influencial men of our era. But I agree, we should discover other philosophers too, Nietzsche's being so pushed that every single teenager knows him and posts his quotes although they don't even grasp their meaning.
It's from one of his unpublished works (I forget the name). In this particular piece he gives a rare insight into his personal life. He touches on his failed relationship with Lou Salom, whom he proposed to three times, and his brief infatuation with a colleague's (Rudolf Wagner) wife, Cosmia. Nietzsche may come off as misogynistic or cold-hearted, but deep down, he was a passionate man.
>It's super easy to pick out the people who Haven't read Nietzsche.
I had the intelligence to stop after a certain point, such a facile adolescent worldview. I can't believe there are people who believe in existential issues. Just get on with it for heaven's sake!
