Zweites Stück) î PDF, eBook or Kindle ePUB Part II of Thoughts Out of Season Moreover I hate everything which merely instructs me without increasing or directly uickening my activity” These are Goethe’s words with which as with a boldly expressed ceterum censeo we may begin our consideration of the worth and worthlessness of history Our aim will be to show why instruction which fails to uicken activity why knowledge which enfeebles activity why history as a cos. On the Usefulness and Disadvantage of History for Life Between 1872 when his first book Die Geburt der Trag die appeared and 1876 when he left the University of Basel to write in Italy Friedrich Nietzsche 1844 1900 wrote an enormous amount of prose most of which he did not bring to a satisfactory completion However he did publish singly a series of short bookspamphlets he called Unzeitgem sse Betrachtungen Untimely Considerations which at one point he had projected to include as many as 21 parts In the end he published 4It is of note that during the manic phases of his manic depressive cycles he viewed these publications as a process of tearing down the many aspects of 19th century life he hated a clearing away of encrustations to enable him to see clearly the visions he knew were going to come he already had intimations of them but these he kept in his notebooks and did not publish One of the Unzeitgem sse Betrachtungen I find interesting is Vom Nutzen und Nachteil der Historie f r das Leben On the Usefulness and Disadvantage of History for Life For Nietzsche historians history was one of these encrustations which had to be chipped away As one of my esteemed GR friends has pointed out in a review of this book in the early 21st century almost nobody knows or gives a damn about historians history so now Nietzsche would be preaching to the choir Of course precisely the same people wouldn t give a damn about Nietzsche eitherIn view of the fact that the word historicism has been used in a dozen mutually contradictory ways since Karl Popper took up the word and incorrectly ascribed his meaning of the word to Hegel I won t use it I doubt the word has any fixed meaning now except in the discourse of certain schools of adepts among each other I have read claims that in this text Nietzsche made the first criticism of historicism Maybe if you search around in the many meanings of that word this could even be true But what did he actually sayHe begins by explaining why both forgetting and remembering are necessary for mankind Why remembering the right things at the right times is necessary is clear but he sees forgetting the past and entering fully into the moment are necessary both to experience happiness and to act Mankind needs history memory but not too much He then distinguishes three kinds of history which he calls the monumental the antiuarian and the critical The first is necessary for the doers and the mighty in order for them to learn from the past acts and examples of similar men And this is good for life because only such men can make changes for the better he says Nietzsche sees in this kind of history something eternal and ber historical manifestations of Greatness of Genius and this almost immediately after distancing himself from ber historical thinkers who see the eternal in every moment a point of view he seems to associate with Eastern thought This is curious because it is evident from the longing in his description of these mighty doers and from his other writings that he wants to be among them he also uses almost the same language in describing the disdain both feel for their own bodies I suppose he views the Eastern kind as passive and inactive and those attributes he finds repugnantHowever a focus on this one kind of history while good for the small number of powerful doers is bad for history and most everyone else it reduces history to a few special cases surrounding a few special men and leads to illusions and false analogies We all know how this kind of history has been misusedThe antiuarian history is that of the conservatives and the pious those who look with faithful love to whence they came and wish to preserve that for those who will follow This is the history for almost everyone for the less gifted as he says this is the history of Blut und Boden this is the history which keeps most people contentedly in one place preventing dissatisfied searches for greener pastures which would lead to conflict Except that it didn t always as we know all too wellThis kind of history is too narrow too provincial too limited in ways we are all so well aware of that I will leave it at thatThe critical history is not what one would expect It is not the history of the critical judging intellectual far from it It is the critical judging history of life itself which right or wrong just or not puts an end to everything that emerges into existence whether it be an individual a mountain or the Roman Empire Of course this critical history can manifest itself through the actions of men It is necessary for renewal though he finds the renewal to be generally weaker than the healthy form of the original at least in the case of human societies Clearly critical history is harmful where it is not absolutely neededOne must admit that this is an idiosyncratic division of history into types These types of history all serve life though they can also hurt it as mentioned But all are to be contrasted with the history of the historian whose science has stepped between life and history and cut their bonds Here Nietzsche is revisiting in some detail a thesis he already touched upon in Die Geburt der Trag die science and its concomitant abstraction have sucked the lifeblood the instincts out of modern man He is skinning just one of their manifestations in this text the history of the historian but he is whetting his knife for them all He details five ways this history is inimical and dangerous to life it weakens personality through overexposure to foreign cultures and history I should have about zero personality by now if this thesis is correct it gives the illusion that the current culture has the greatest virtue and justice the instincts are destroyed and both the individual and the whole cannot fully ripen it gives the illusion that one is late born that one is an epigone it leads mankind into self irony cynicism and egotism He gives a lengthy discussion of each of these points taking the opportunity to knee many of his most despised objects bureaucrats functionaries contemporary philosophers historians pretensions to objectivity etc in the groin Reading over the other reviews of this book it is clear that each reader has his own Nietzsche I don t agree with many of his philosophical opinions and I abhor his cult of genius But then I am an early 21st century intellectual who has willingly nay gleefully saturated himself with history and foreign cultures and is disdainful of the antiuarian history into which he was born I am his Flachkopf made corporeal And yet I still am reading his texts because as I briefly indicated in another review Nietzsche went where no one else before him went and he never came back He went there with a megalomaniacal verve and an astounding prose style Some of the things he told us on the way are valuable the course of his travels to wherever he went is fascinating A word concerning Nietzsche s prose style In this text Nietzsche jettisons the purple Romantic prose of his previous writings and offers us something closely approximating his mature style a fluid flexible elouent prose strongly influenced by Greco Roman writers For in this and all subseuent texts Nietzsche is not writing for an academic audience but rather for a general educated readership as did those earlier writers And as they did Nietzsche tries to make his points to such a audience by telling little stories using extended metaphors etc He even uses a uote from Jonathan Swift to generate a belly laugh and to reduce a target ad absurdum When he starts going on about the German soul or about how his ideas are manly and those of the objects of his criticism are feminine my eyes begin to glaze over but otherwise even when I object to the content he holds my attention beautifully This book has been translated into English under at least two different titles On the Advantage and Disadvantage of History for Life and On the Use and Abuse of History for Life I suppose the translators wanted to have a certain parallelism in their titles which Nietzsche did not have in his he went with alliteration Is it not the case that nearly every one of these is manifested in our age an age in which history insofar as it is known to the general public at all is known only under the guise of monumental antiuarian or critical history And if this is true then what is left of the criticism Nietzsche levels at historians history Rating Destiny uickening my activity” These are Goethe’s words with which as with a boldly

Zweites Stück) î PDF, eBook or Kindle ePUB Ry for life and action not for the smug avoiding of life and action or even to whitewash a selfish life and cowardly bad acts Only so far as history serves life will we serve it but there is a degree of doing history and an estimation of it which brings with it a withering and degenerating of life a phenomenon which is now as necessary as it may be painful to bring to consciousness through some remarkable symptoms of our a. Every time I read a book by Nietzsche my mind gets blown and I feel enlightened In a mere 60 pages or so Nietzsche totally annihilates Hegelianism and the education system The thesis of the book is that in our time Knowledge rules Life and this will result in the end of both Knowledge and Living Instead we must consider Life to be the ultimate value and the thing in which our youth should be skilled This is by far the most accessible book by this author I have ever read so don t be daunted by it Highly recommended to anyone By far the most Broadsides The Age of Fighting Sail 1775 1815 ultimate value and the thing in which our youth should be skilled This is by far the most accessible book by this author I have ever read so don t be daunted by it Highly recommended to anyone By far the most
