Nietzsche is a thinker in the Extreme. According to political and ideological extremists have tried from the very left to the very right of him to stretch in front of the own cart. However, this author has evaded the ideological use again and again, and as an experimental thinker, proved to be, the shows were rebellious against such claims.
The interest in Nietzsche continues unabated. The two to display books for the bandwidth in which the employment with Nietzsche moves today. And yet there are also similarities between the work of the Munich philosopher Heinrich Meier, the treated Nietzsche's last year before the collapse, and that of the British-Norwegian writer Sue Prideaux, the Nietzsche's life from the cradle to the grave and beyond, to Hitler's Visit Nietzsche's sister in Weimar, Nietzsche-Archiv, explains: Meier and Prideaux both Nietzsche himself extensively to come word. Your handling of the secondary literature is not comparable, namely, very reluctant to say: the low-estimating – when a full knowledge of the other from the widespread ignorance go. With Prideaux and Meier a subsequent counter who wants to make Nietzsche "film Mature", and an author who wants to explore Nietzsche's philosophical life-form stand.
Prideaux's biography is quickly written and shows a lot of feeling for landscape, mood, Setting, also for dramaturgy. Unfortunately, this is anything that can be in favor of this book say. Because first of all, it is full of factual errors, which are multiplied in the Translation considerably, and no editing would be allowed to let that go: no, Naumburg is in the Thuringian forest. No, there is in Lutheranism, no "priestly ordination", and in the case of Nietzsche there is no "Apollo skills". No, Nietzsche attacked David Friedrich Strauss was neither a "rational Christian" nor a "Kant cher philosopher". No, Nietzsche's school essay on Hölderlin was not an original performance of a stroke of Genius-Precocious about a then totally unknown Poet, but plagiarism from a Hölderlin anthology, which was widely used in 1861 far. But the research knows only a quarter of a century, while you always knew, that Nietzsche claims not, like, the youngest ever to Basel appointed Professor was, and that he earned there, not 3000 francs per month, but in the year.
an open book
of Course for a wide readership imaginary biography must be no independent research performance, but one may expect that minimum standards of historical source criticism, the author is familiar with. The "Critical edition" will send a good bibliography, however, there is not used where it nottäte – otherwise the letters would not be quoted by Nietzsche from obscure locations; also, the Works of Nietzsche's sister would not be used without comment as if they were irrefutable fact reports.
Prideaux gives the impression that the interior of your hero's life as an open book in front of her. So she picks up on Nietzsche's concerns, value of the word "term quake" to carve out only to the case of Nietzsche not used the word "soul of quake" ("earthquakes of the soul") and in the quotation-the quotation marks: The "soul of quake" had Nietzsche been haunted, as the two friends their own way went. Unfortunately, the sources do not give such a diagnosis. But who cares when you can make Nietzsche's life in this way, "film-ripe"?
Not a concern could Meier be also, although he shares the title of Prideaux's biography called self-assessment of Nietzsche, such as "dynamite" to. Meier's book, a preparatory study has gone to "Zarathustra" forward, takes Nietzsche's last year is 1888 in the view, that is, in the case of Prideaux only "twilight in Turin", but according to Meier the actual philosophical quintessence of light promotes: The "Umwerthung of value", which is hoped to Nietzsche, the "Antichrist" is realized. According to Nietzsche's own admission, his car genealogy "Ecce homo, should lead" the reader to the "Antichrist". According to Meier sees these two works as a twin writings, and devotes his book to your very precise analysis.Updated Date: 20 July 2020, 03:19
