Nietzsche and Buddhist Philosophy by Antoine Panaïoti (review)

Abstract

140 | J o u R n A l o f n i e t z s c h e s t u d i e s "tragedy teaches that the individual should be consecrated to something higher than himself " (360). A further concern has to do with Constâncio's choice of translating Selbstaufhebung as "self-cancelation" ("auto-cancelamento"). In Portuguese, there are expressions more suitable for expressing the "self-suppression" ("autosupressão") of the will to truth, such as it is described by Nietzsche (see, in this respect, O. Giacoia Jr., Nietzsche: o humano como memória e como promessa [Petrópolis, RJ: Vozes, 2013], 121). Finally, I would have liked a clearer distinction between the concepts of pessimism and asceticism in Schopenhauer and between the concepts decadence and nihilism (as well as between nihilism and ascetic ideal) in Nietzsche. Nevertheless, one can be sure that Constâncio has presented Nietzsche studies in the Portuguese language with a work of very high quality, as the author carefully confronts essential themes of Nietzsche's thought such as nihilism, pessimism, the will to power, the notion of "self," and the concepts of art and tragedy.
