My struggle with reading ‘The Poetry of Friedrich Nietzsche’ By Philip Grundlehner.

Philosophical Apprentice comments.

I purchased ‘The Poetry of Friedrich Nietzsche’ what seemed like decades ago, from a Oxford University Press book sale.

I had read Rudiger Safranski’s Philosophical Biography of Nietzsche, well before reading about Nietzsche’s poetry. Some of his thought’s, positions seemed unhinged.

And some of ‘Philosophy and Truth’ :

As a ‘misfit’ I might have felt a sense of sympathy, or felt a kind of resonance- he inspired both Adorno and Heidegger…

Perhaps my next book should be Alexander Nehamas’ book ? Though it will have to wait.

Rootless cosmopolitan,down at heels intellectual;would be writer. 'Polemic is a discourse of conflict, whose effect depends on a delicate balance between the requirements of truth and the enticements of anger, the duty to argue and the zest to inflame. Its rhetoric allows, even enforces, a certain figurative licence. Like epitaphs in Johnson’s adage, it is not under oath.'
