110 thought on “The Affirmation of Life: Nietzsche on Overcoming Nihilism

  1. Have you ever said Yes to a single joy O my friends, then you have said Yes too to all woe All things are entangled, ensnared, enad if ever you wanted one thing twice, if ever you said, You please me, happiness Abide moment then you wanted all back All anew, all eternally, all entangled, ensnared, enad oh then you loved the world Eternal ones, love it eternally and ever and to woe too, you say go, but return For all joy wants eternity Friedrich Nietzsche Thus Spake Zarathustra A Book for All and [...]


  2. Nietzsche s esoteric works lend themselves to enough misinterpretation and confusion that one should never turn down a chance to get clarification This is a good book for that purposeBernard Reginster s 290 pages include a useful 20 page introduction and a surprisingly interesting footnote section at the end, also about 20 pages The four chapters, or sections, of the book concentrate on Nietzsche s ethics Reginster emphasizes Nietzsche s two unprecedented contributions to ethics the Will to Powe [...]


  3. As suggested by the title of the book, Reginster considers Nitzsche s biggest crisis as nihilism And the way to overcome it is by affirming life, regardless of any absolute and objective meaning of life, which, according to Reginster, is Nietzsche s biggest philosophical achievement.Reginster takes a systematic approach to Nietzsche s works and the book brings out two major theses 1 a systematic view of Nietzsche s account on affirming life, and 2 a project of a revaluation of values, which is a [...]


  4. Reginster is a rich and subtle reader of Nietzsche I particularly appreciate his passages on Nietzsche s concept of happiness as being active creativity s overcoming of resistance rather than a state of contentment There s much to ponder there for a society massing luxuries while gobbling anti depressants.


  5. this book is very helpful for those who want a deeper understanding of nietzsche and his work ideas reginster takes the stance that nietzsche s main philosophical project was the affirmation of life and avoidance of nihilism taking the whole of nietzsche s body of works, those published during and after his life, and couching the analysis through much of schopenhauer s philosophy who was very influencial on nietzsche , reginster accounts for nietzsche s claims about the sources of nihilism the d [...]


  6. This book is an excellent work of scholarship on Nietzsche It argues, correctly in my view, against over hyped claims that Nietzsche is purposely anti systematic thinker to show that the problem of nihilism is the central issue in his philosophy and that he presents a systematic response to it Register displays a command of Nietzsche s writings to develop and defend his view Along the way the discusses a variety of key themes in Nietzsche s philosophy including nihilism, self overcoming self cre [...]


  7. I don t know why, for such a radical thinker who surged with creative energy and was resolutely opposed to any sort of philosophical methodology, Nietzsche attracts the most boring of interpreters The book is dense and filled with jargon I don t mind this if the jargon is due to legitimate complexity of the concepts But this book just bears the hallmark of bad and obscure writing There is too much waffling and unnecessary repetition A few of the points were interesting but I would not recommend [...]


  8. A very insightful and convincing examination of Nietzsche s perspectives on life, morality, and creativity A bit problematic in its reliance on Will to Power which is a mock up book, nothing N ever planned to publish , and it like most critical accounts overstates the importance of many of N s nostrums But still very interesting.


  9. A good amount to engage and disagree with here, especially on the issue of Nietzsche s meta ethics Nevertheless, anyone interested in Nietzsche should read Reginster s chapter on the will to power.



  10. I don t know Nietzsche well enough to have views about a lot of Reginster s central claims, but I found the book extremely helpful and illuminating.
