Example text

Thus I do not believe that a “desire for comprehension” is the father of philosophy, but rather a quite different desire has here as elsewhere used comprehension (together with miscomprehension) as tools to serve its 28 Part Two own ends. Anyone who looks at the basic desires of man with a view to finding out how well they have played their part in precisely this field as inspirational genii (or demons or hobgoblins) will note that they have all philosophized at one time or another. . Conversely, there is nothing impersonal whatever in the philosopher.

This section begins: 32 Part Three Most closely related to the question of nutriment is the question of place and climate. No one is free to live everywhere; and he who has great tasks to fulfil which challenge his entire strength has indeed in this matter a very narrow range of choice. The influence of climate on the metabolism, its slowing down, its speeding up, extends so far that a blunder in regard to place and climate can not only estrange anyone from his task but withhold it from him altogether: he never catches sight of it.

Conversely, there is nothing impersonal whatever in the philosopher. And particularly his morality testifies decidedly and decisively as to who he is — that is, what order of rank the innermost desires of his nature occupy. (BGE,6,7) Nietzsche never deviates from this fundamental interpretation. All philosophizing — serious or superficial — originates and continues to be sustained and grow — from the personal experiences of the philosopher. The personal is philosophical. Or reverse. Ecce Homo is an intimate, detailed and I think, honest personal self-portrait.
