Philosophy of the Morning: Nietzsche and the Politics of Transfiguration

Philosophy of the Morning: Nietzsche and the Politics of Transfiguration Abstract: Nietzsche's life project remains constant throughout his life: it is the project of transformation or transfiguration. He formulates this as the necessity of dealing with the way that one's past (be it that of an individual, or a society, or the species) shapes one's present. The paradigm for this transformation is first to be found in The Birth of Tragedy , but it reappears in various guises in all of his work. I argue that Nietzsche's writing is itself designed so as to make possible such a transformation in his readers. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png The Journal of Nietzsche Studies Penn State University Press

Abstract

Abstract: Nietzsche's life project remains constant throughout his life: it is the project of transformation or transfiguration. He formulates this as the necessity of dealing with the way that one's past (be it that of an individual, or a society, or the species) shapes one's present. The paradigm for this transformation is first to be found in The Birth of Tragedy , but it reappears in various guises in all of his work. I argue that Nietzsche's writing is itself designed so as to make possible such a transformation in his readers.
