According to Nietzsche. He frequently made remarks in his writing that some view as misogynistic. In "Nietzsche and Fascists," he argued against such instrumentalization, by the left or the right, declaring that Nietzsche's aim was to by-pass the short timespan of modern politics, and its inherent lies and simplifications, for a greater historical timespan. Or have you once experienced a tremendous moment, in which you would answer him: "Thou art a god, and never have I heard anything more divine!" Von Hartmann suggested that Schopenhauer was the only philosopher who has been systematically studied by Nietzsche.[111]. The reason for his insanity is still unknown, although historians have attributed it to causes as varied as syphilis, an inherited brain disease, a tumor and overuse of sedative drugs. Works such as Bruce Detwiler's Nietzsche and the Politics of Aristocratic Radicalism (University of Chicago Press, 1990), Fredrick Appel's Nietzsche Contra Democracy (Cornell University Press, 1998), and Domenico Losurdo's Nietzsche, il ribelle aristocratico (Turin: Bollati Boringhieri, 2002) challenge the prevalent liberal interpretive consensus on Nietzsche and assert that Nietzsche's elitism was not merely an aesthetic pose but an ideological attack on the widely held belief in equal rights of the modern West, locating Nietzsche in the conservative-revolutionary tradition. In his opposition to Christian tradition and modern philosophy Nietzsche also criticized the concepts of soul, subject and atomism (that is, the existence of an atomic subject at the foundation of everything, found for example in social contract theories). His books were unavailable to the public in the Soviet Union since 1923. In the second part of this aphorism, which according to Bataille contained the most important parts of Nietzsche's political thought, the thinker of the Eternal Return stated: No, we do not love humanity; but on the other hand we are not nearly "German" enough, in the sense in which the word "German" is constantly being used nowadays, to advocate nationalism and race hatred and to be able to take pleasure in the national scabies of the heart and blood poisoning that now leads the nations of Europe to delimit and barricade themselves against each other as if it were a matter of quarantine. He wrote that liberalism is synonymous with mediocrity and believed also that it leads to cultural decay. He also began to distance himself from classical scholarship, as well as the teachings of Schopenhauer, and to take more interest in the values underlying modern-day civilization. Although he volunteered for the Franco-Prussian war, he soon became critical of Prussian militarism, mostly because of his disillusionment in German culture and national politics, but didn't renounce militarism in general. The Swiss philosopher Jean Piaget (1896-1980) believed that autonomy comes from within and results from a "free decision". [citation needed], Nietzsche's view on eternal return is similar to that of Hume: "the idea that an eternal recurrence of blind, meaningless variation—chaotic, pointless shuffling of matter and law—would inevitably spew up worlds whose evolution through time would yield the apparently meaningful stories of our lives. Nietzsche believed that if socialist goals are achieved society would be leveled down and conditions for superior individuals and higher culture would disappear. The eternal hourglass will again and again be turned—and you with it, dust of dust!" If you see something that doesn't look right, contact us! Have you grasped nothing of the reason why I am in the world? These accursed anti-Semite deformities shall not sully my ideal!! [29], In the context of his criticism of morality and Christianity, expressed, among others works, in On the Genealogy of Morals and in The Antichrist, Nietzsche often criticized humanitarian feelings, detesting how pity and altruism were ways for the "weak" to take power over the "strong".

[57] He described Rousseau as "moral tarantula", his ideas as "idiocies and half-truths" that were born out of self-contempt and inflamed vanity, claimed that he held a grudge against the ruling classes and by moralizing he tried to blame them for his own misery. A laughingstock or established embarrassment. The term "aristocratic radicalism" was first used by Georg Brandes to which Nietzsche responded: The expression Aristocratic Radicalism, which you employ, is very good. [20][21] He was against equality of rights[22][23][24] and defended slavery, believing that it's a necessary condition for supporting an upper class which could devote itself to more sophisticated, creative activities. Although he blamed Jews for inventing the religious slave morality which preceded Christianity and undermined the aristocratic Roman Empire,[92] he also often praised Jewish intelligence and achievements.

[11][12][13] Despite his proclaimed contempt for daily politics and culture of newspaper reading, Nietzsche did comment on contemporary political events in his letters and notes.

For Nietzsche, modern politics rests largely on a secular inheritance of Christian values (he interprets the socialist doctrine of equality in terms of a secularization of the Christian belief in the equality of all souls before God" (On the Genealogy of Morality, Ansell-Pearson and Diethe, eds., Cambridge University Press, 1994, p. 9). Nietzsche was clear that no one would ever fully achieve this status.
