VÔĽA K MOCI A IDEA VEČNÉHO NÁVRATU: NIETZSCHEHO PREKONÁVANIE NIHILIZMU
Will to power and the idea of the eternal recurrence: Nietzsche on overcoming of nihilism
Languages of publication
The most significant problems of contemporary life have their origins in nihilism and its paradoxical logic, which is simultaneously destructive, and constitutive of society and individual. Yet, in philosophical theory, nihilism is surprisingly under-researched topic. Nietzsche’s relation to the problem of nihilism is a complex one. He approaches the problem of nihilism as deeply personal, stating that this predicament of the modern world is a problem that has become conscious in him. Sense of Nietzsche’s idea of the eternal recurrence assumes criticism existence as it is, without meaning or aim. The philosophy of will should displace metaphysics, overcome and revaluate all ancient values. The author tries to explain Nietzsche’s idea of the will to power as a simulative principle of the idea of the eternal recurrence. The paper examines the relationship of Nietzsche’s time perspective to nihilism, and how it relates to overcoming or closuring of open nihilism.
