Nietzsche and Death
This presentation investigates the nietzschean concept of death. At first, we’ll discuss Nietzsche’s reinterpretation of death, taking into consideration the transition between the concept of matter to the force hypothesis; the indifference between the organic and inorganic realms and, finally, the solidarity among perspective and exact perception in the «dead world». Following, our focus turns to the effects of this reinterpretation on man. We intend to understand the concepts of Freiheit zum Tode in opposition to unfreier Tod, through a study of both ways to want death. We shall see, finally, how this ambivalent meaning of death, as demonstrated by Nietzsche, is an immediate consequence of the relationship between man and time.
