What it’s about.

This is an online filing cabinet for things I find interesting or helpful, an extension of my pastoral ministry, a place to nail my colours to the mast, and an outlet for random interests and my surreal sense of humour… 

Feel free to be in touch.

    Lfn, a request. I have been reading Colin Wilson’s The Outsider and have found it extremely intriguing, amazing, and a very deep and brilliantly done study. I have never read Nietzsche, though he has been in my intended reads for quite sometime. However, I want to understand, in brief, what exactly does the term “Pure Will” means. Since it seems you have read him, I would like to know how you would explain it to a lay man or beginner. You may reply or still better write a post about it, if you have time. Thanks!

    Hi bc,

    It would be misleading to say that I’ve read lots and lots of Nietzsche, but I’ll have a think and ask a couple of people and then get back to you.

    Hi Florinda,

    “Pure will” is not an easily defined phrase as far as I know. I have spoken with a Nietzsche scholar that I know and he said it would depend upon which text you are referring to as to the meaning. He said,

    “I think “pure” usually means impersonal, universal, not involving anyone’s valuational choice, not expressing anyone’s valuational biography, utterly necessary, somehow “neutral.” which Nietzsche reveals isn’t possible BGE [Beyond Good and Evil] ¶6…” He wrote more, but this is the main bit.

    Hope this helps… I’m too buried under other things to give a response out of my own studies at the moment.

    Cheers,

    LfN
