IL ROVESCIAMENTO DEI VALORI

KONTRA KUNT

Nella sua sottile e scaltrita analisi “genealogica” del cristianesimo, Nietzsche ne rileva in primo luogo la stretta connessione con l’ebraismo, visto come l’espressione “ideologica” del “popolo più fatale della storia del mondo”, in quanto deliberatamente orientato a “falsificare” la natura, la realtà, la storia, per affermare in antitesi una religione e una morale “contro-naturali”, ma in tal modo conseguenti ad un disegno di potenza e di autoconservazione di questo popolo.

TRASVALUTAZIONE

TRANVALUATION

Nella concezione di Nietzsche, il cristianesimo, come fonte nichilistica di corruzione e di infiacchimento dei valori aristocratici della forza e della fierezza, della bellezza e dell’ardimento, permea, come già detto, l’intera modernità.

THE DEMON’S INTONATION

INTDEM

For Nietzsche in Thus Spoke Zarathustra, our focus on the past explains the reference to our concern with ourselves, with the stone fact, the ‘it was,’ the musing, brooding preoccupation on the past that is also the poison of ressentiment. Let’s spell this out a bit further by again recalling what Nietzsche’s aggressive demon says in The Gay Science:

Where Do Values Come From?

If the problem is the value of nature, the first question we face is the nature of values. In philosophy, the most compelling answer to this question comes from Hume; in the sciences, from sociobiology. Neither are necessarily incompatible with each other, and in most ways they are entirely compatible because the central contention is the same: ethics is a question of human nature.

Hume is infamous for, among other things, an idea known as the “is/ought problem,” which argues that one can never derive a justified ought merely from the way things are. For example, one cannot argue that disparities between men and women in certain career fields should be supported by policy simply because sex differences in job preference exist. A little thinking will reveal this idea to be indisputable, at least so long as we regard moral judgments abstractly.

Although it may seem an innocuous observation, the “is/ought problem” has at least one far-reaching implication: morality can never be wholly empirically and rationally derived. Instead, moral attitudes are in large part due to sentiments and feelings. Regarding things we consider wrong, Hume (1978, p. 469) writes, “You never can find [the vice], till you turn your reflexion into your own breast, and find a sentiment of disapprobation, which arises in you, towards this action.”

POEMA AL DIOS DESCONOCIDO

“Antes de seguir mi camino
y de poner mis ojos hacia adelante,
alzo otra vez, solitario, mis manos
hacia Ti, al que me acojo,
al que en el más hondo fondo del corazón
consagraré, solemne, altares
para que en todo tiempo tu voz,
una vez más, vuelva a llamarme.

CONTRAPOSICIÓN ENTRE EL HOMBRE INTUITIVO Y EL HOMBRE RACIONAL

EXTRAMORAL

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Tiempos hay en que se dan juntos el hombre racional y el hombre intuitivo, aquel temiendo a la intuición y éste, mofándose de la abstracción; el segundo, tan irracional cuan antiartístico el primero. Uno y otro pretenden gobernar la vida: aquél, sabiendo hacer frente, por previsión, prudencia y regularidad, a los apremios principales; éste, pasando por alto, como “héroe pletórico y alegre”, esos apremios y tomando como real únicamente la vida acondicionada en ficción y belleza.

Listening, hearing, is intrinsically linked to the ear, just as watching, seeing, is linked to the eye (the I). The culture of the West is based predominantly on the visual – you might say at the end of all this: I see what he means. You might not. What was that? What was that we just heard”

EL IMPULSO A LA ELABORACIÓN DE METÁFORAS

EXTRAMORAL

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

El impulso a la elaboración de metáforas, ese impulso fundamental del hombre, que no puede ser eliminado ni por un instante porque ello significaría la eliminación del hombre mismo, no por haberse construido con sus productos volatilizados, los conceptos, un mundo nuevo, regular y rígido, para que le sirva de castillo fuerte, está realmente dominado, apenas sí domado.
