Bashing is such an empty phrase for a man who wrote so eloquently about his anger, give the man some credit dude..

I'm just calling things their name. Nietzche was exclusively a negative philosopher, his all philosophy was based on contradiction to Schopenhauer. Even the little positive which was in his writings - life affirming worldview - was born by a person who was seriously physically and mentally ill. There was more self-destruction in him than in his opponents who he called decadents.

You're being mighty simplistic and judgemental here mate, why don't you ask yourself what's in it for you (O Mensch! Gib acht, was spricht die tiefe Mitternacht?)

 

You might learn something  :p

Cool, did you read Safranski's 'Nietzsche a philosophical biography'? For me one of the best I read on the subject so far

 

(IMO of course) :wink_face:

I have just read a moving tale of angst and transformation: The Very Hungry Caterpillar by Eric Carle.

Es war nicht auf Deutsch weil ich kann Deutsch nicht. My daughter still enjoyed it though and I enjoyed reading it to her.

Perhaps when I pass first grade literacy I might try my hand at some Dr Zeus. Will be sure to post it here to show how clever I am.

Read that one too. Didn't really get into it though. Felt like it would've been better understood from a woman's perspective.
