Friedrich Nietzsche on Being - Dictionary of Arguments

Ries II 28
Being/Nietzsche: not becoming anymore but "appearance" as the Apollonian sublimate of the world of becoming is the primary. (Taken from Schopenhauer): "pessimistic basic idea" from the "cruelty of being", but whose characteristics are only defined aesthetically.
Ries II 110
Being/Nietzsche: there is no being. (NietzscheVsHeidegger).
Danto III 134
I/Serin/Nietzsche/Danto: (The Reason) believes in the "I", in the I as Being, in the I as Substance and projects the belief in the I-Substance on all things - it creates the term 'thing'... Being is thought of everywhere as cause, pushed underneath it; from the conception 'I' only follows, as derived, the concept 'being'... (1)
>I, Ego, >Self/Nietzsche, >Subject/Nietzsche, >Psychology/Nietzsche, >Self/Nietzsche.
