Friedrich Nietzsche, German
From 1880 until his collapse
in January 1889, Friedrich Nietzsche led a wandering existence as a stateless
individual, writing most of his major works during this period. The initial
symptoms of Friedrich Nietzsche's breakdown, as evidenced in the letters he
sent to his friends in the few days of lucidity remaining to him, bear many
similarities to the ecstatic writings of
religious mystics. Friedrich Nietzsche's
letters describe his experience as a religious breakthrough and he rejoices,
rather than laments.
A paper published in Acta
Psychiatrica Scandinavica reconsiders the insanity and death of philosopher
Friedrich Nietzsche, who is commonly thought to have died of neurosyphilis. The
story of Nietzsche having caught syphilis from prostitutes was actually
concocted after the Second World War by Wilhelm Lange-Eichbaum, an academic who
was one of Nietzsche's most vociferous critics. Intellectuals at the time were
keen to demolish the reputation of Nietzsche, whose idea of a "Superman" was used to underpin Nazism. In the
late 19th century more than 90 per cent of those with advanced syphilis rapidly
declined and died within five years of diagnosis. Nietzsche, in contrast, lived
for another 11 years.
The authors of the new study published in
published in Acta Psychiatrica Scandinavica suggest that Nietzsche died of
frontotemporal dementia a type of dementia that specifically affects the
frontal and temporal lobes. Other studies of medical records suggest that
Friedrich Nietzsche almost certainly died of a slowly-developing brain tumor.
"Nietzsche was not anti-semitic or a nationalist, and hated the herd
mentality," said Prof Stephen Houlgate, a Nietzsche scholar at Warwick
University. "If this new research gets rid of another misconception about him,
Friedrich Nietzsche was heavily
Arthur Schopenhauer who
theorized that humans living in the realm of
objects are living in the realm of
desire, and thus are eternally
tormented by that desire (this parallels
the dharma of Siddhartha
Gautama). That drive was defined by Arthur Schopenhauer as the inherent drive
within humans beings, and indeed all creatures, to stay
alive and to reproduce.
Arthur Schopenhauer believed that through
art the thinking individual could be
jarred out of their limited,
individual prespective to feel a sense of the universal (metaphysics)
Nietzsche's hypothesis of the human condition to some
extent left out the
social engineering variable by assuming that the herd is willing to accepts
its role - most of the time they are born into it and quite simply see no other
way. There most definitely is a pecking order mentality in that people will
agree with powerful personalities in the hope of currying those people's favor
and many willing ride the force of these people's personality wave regardless
of moral concerns.
That is due to the fact that these individuals basically owe their
increased material wealth and power to their
lack of empathy which gives them an operational advantage.

personal relation with the Creator and Sustainer through the pursuit of the
knowledge of reality in the hope of curing the spiritual corruption that has
enveloped the human spirit. The tenets of The Truth of the Way of Life are
spelled out in detail on this web site by the author. Violent acts against
