What this forum is about.

Post  Sauwelios on Mon Dec 19, 2011 11:01 pm

This forum is dedicated to Nietzsche's early philosophy, i.e., his philosophy from around the time of The Birth of Tragedy. I think Nietzsche's early philosophy already contained the seeds of his mature philosophy, with the primordial One, which he also called "the primordial Will", corresponding to the will to power, and the both Apollinian and Dionysian genius, whom he also called "the lyrical genius", corresponding to the Übermensch. (I think the word "lyrical" is funny in this context, by the way, because I conceive the Übermensch as the man who is "lyrical" about existence.)
