Sample text

Nietzsche’s conception of a unity of the theoretical with the practical is found in his early unpublished writings on the philosophy of the Greeks—in the relatively finished text of 1873, Die Philosophie im tragischen Zeitalter der Griechen (Philosophy in the Tragic Age of the Greeks), and in the collection of notes from 1875 gathered under the title Wissenschaft und Weisheit im Kampfe (The Struggle between Science and Wisdom). 174), in terms of three features: 1. illogical generalizing and rushing towards final ends, 2.

Quite independently of the historical question of the extent to which Nietzsche may have been influenced by and absorbed motifs from Kant and post-Kantianism,²⁹ Nietzsche’s outlook, in so far as he upholds the Presocratic ideal of philosophy, may be situated, for systemic purposes, in a line of descent from Kant—he mobilizes the idea of the primacy of practical reason and, connectedly, of a non-realistic, transcendental or regulative warrant for norms. What a transcendental reading of Nietzsche would amount to cannot be explored in detail here, but the following are brief suggestions as to what its core elements should comprise.

How could Nietzsche in any way reject the assertion of philosophical naturalism, without a counter-assertion of super-naturalism? On my understanding, however, this is the very point at which Nietzsche regards philosophical reflection as coming to a halt, and the Third Essay of the Genealogy is intended to show us how and why it must do so. If Nietzsche were to be a consistent naturalist, then he would have to agree that the need for Sinn can be explained as some kind of evolutionary or whatever Nebenwirkung, to be resolved back into a naturalized, mechanistic, hedonistic psychology.
