By Nietzsche, Friedrich Wilhelm; Bull, Malcolm; Nietzsche, Friedrich

Nietzsche continues to be what he desired to be - the limit-philosopher of a modernity that by no means ends. This booklet argues that purely to reject Nietzsche isn't to flee his trap. His appeals to our hope for victory, our creativity, our very humanity are seductions we won't withstand just by disagreeing with him.


A provocative highbrow attack at the iconic philosopher.

The new Husserl : a critical reader

The new first-time book of works from Edmund Husserl's later years, specially his Freiburg interval, mixed with new experiences of his technique and theories, has prompted a notable shift in perceptions of the scope and value of Husserl's transcendental phenomenology. trained by means of a deep analyzing of not only the works released in the course of Husserl's lifetime but in addition the numerous lectures and manuscripts he wrote in his later years, the essays within the New Husserl offer another method of Husserl by way of studying his paintings and his process as an entire and by way of probing matters, previous and new, that occupied him in this enormously effective interval.

For Arnold, the only perfect freedom is ‘an elevation of our best self, and a harmonizing in subordination to this, and to a perfected humanity, all the . . 65 For Nietzsche, ‘it is only as an aesthetic phenomenon that the existence and the world are eternally justified’, and it is ‘the perfection of these states in contrast to the incompletely intelligible everyday world . . 66 In The Birth of Tragedy, the contrast between ordinary and higher experience is articulated through two oppositions: that between Apollo and Silenus, and that between Dionysus and Socrates.

It is therefore misleading to suggest that the ready-made says ‘art is junk’;12 what it says is only that ‘junk is art’. To demonstrate that art is junk, Dada would have had to work in the opposite direction. 13 However, neither he nor the other Dadaists did so, and the museums of the world were never turned into laundry rooms. In consequence, although art galleries are now filled with objects that might have been taken from rubbish tips, rubbish tips remain barren of objects taken from art galleries.

So, even if one accepts the logic of the argument, the principle of general positivity, as it is misleadingly termed, demonstrates not the ubiquity of value but only its ineradicability. As such, it amounts to no more than a ‘principle of general wetness’ which states that in order to be described as such even the driest environment must have spots that are relatively moist. The existence of traces of value in the wastes of the negative does not imply that positivity is either predominant or constant.
