THE TRUTH OF EXTINCTION:SOLAR CATASTROPHE

SOLAR CATASTROPHE

 

 

 

 

 

 

This latter question lies at the heart of Jean-François Lyotard’s ‘Can Thought go on Without a Body?’, the opening chapter from his  collection The Inhuman. Lyotard invites us to ponder philosophy’s relationship to the terrestrial horizon which, in the wake of the collapse of the metaphysical horizon called ‘God’ – whose dissolution spurred the Nietzschean injunction ‘remain true to the earth!’ (Nietzsche: 42) – has been endowed with a quasi-transcendental status, whether as the ‘originary ark’ (Husserl), the ‘self-secluding’ (Heidegger), or ‘the deterritorialized’ (Deleuze).

LA CIENCIA

CIENCIA

 

 

 

 

 

El problema de las relaciones de Nietzsche con la ciencia ha sido mal planteado. Se actúa como si estas relaciones dependiesen de la teoría del eterno retorno, como si Nietzsche se interesase por la ciencia (y aun así vagamente) cuando le favorecía el eterno retorno, y se desinteresase de ella cuando se le oponía.

THE TRUTH OF EXTINCTION:WILL TO LIE

WILL TO LIE

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Genealogy proceeds by positing the will to power as guarantor of the correlation between evaluation and a world that is only insofar as it is evaluated: the will is at once evaluating and evaluated, the agent of evaluation as well as its patient. Accordingly, for Nietzsche, the pivotal moment in the history of nihilism occurs at that juncture when the will’s drive to eradicate value from the world in the name of truth exposes truth itself as just another value.

THE TRUTH OF EXTINCTION:THE TURNING POINT

THE TURNING POINT

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Ultimately, nihilism’s consummation in the affirmation of eternal recurrence rescinds the privilege traditionally ascribed to knowing in favour of a premium on creative affirmation. For only the will that affirms indifference (recurrence as meaningless iteration of the ‘in vain’) is capable of making a difference by producing being, not as an object of representation, but as a creative power worthy of affirmation.

Las fuerzas poseen una cantidad, pero tienen también la cualidad que corresponde a su diferencia de cantidad: activo y reactivo son las cualidades de las fuerzas. Presentimos que el proble ma de la medida de las fuerzas es delicado, porque pone en juego el arte de las interpretaciones cualitativas.

DISCIPLINE OF SUFFERING

 

 

 

 

 

 

This fundamental deficit between our susceptibility to pleasure and our vulnerability to pain vitiates the attempt to commensurate them.

PLAN DE «LA GENEALOGÍA DE LA MORAL»

 

 

 

 

 

La genealogía de la moral es el libro más sistemático de Nietzsche. Tiene un doble interés: por una, parte, no se presenta ni como conjunto de aforismos ni como un poema, sino como una clave para la interpretación de los aforismos y para la evaluación del poema .

THE TRUTH OF EXTINCTION: NIETZSCHE’S FABLE

THE TRUTH OF EXTINCTION

 

 

 

 

 

Once upon a time, in some out of the way corner of

that universe which is dispersed into numberless twinkling

solar systems, there was a star upon which clever

beasts invented knowing. That was the most arrogant

and mendacious minute of ‘world history’, but nevertheless,

it was only a minute.
