What this site is about.

Post  Sauwelios on Fri Dec 23, 2011 11:19 pm

This site is dedicated, as its name suggests, to the Nietzschean Übermensch. For this reason, its most important forum is the one dedicated to Nietzsche's mature philosophy, and its second-most important is the one dedicated to his early philosophy.

What does this site mean by "Nietzschean Übermensch"? The site's description defines the Nietzschean Übermensch as "the man who glorifies the world as will to power". I will now elaborate on that.

The Nietzschean Übermensch is the human being who wills the eternal recurrence of the world. In doing so, he in three senses glorifies the world as will to power:
1) he glorifies the world, which is will to power and nothing besides;
2) he glorifies the world by conceiving it as being will to power and nothing besides;
3) he glorifies the world while being himself will to power and nothing besides.

[Likewise, this site conceives the Hindu ideal man as the human being who in three senses glorifies the world as Brahman:
1) he glorifies the world, which is Brahman and nothing besides;
2) he glorifies the world by conceiving it as being Brahman and nothing besides;
3) he glorifies the world while being himself Brahman and nothing besides ("Atman is Brahman").]

I will further elaborate on this in the forum dedicated to Nietzsche's mature philosophy.
