Author Item Summary Meta data
Ries II 35
Grammar/On Truth and Lies in the Nonmoral Sense/Nietzsche: pre-drawn relation of "accidental" predicate and "underlying" subject: fiction. This has made the rule of madness irrevocable.
Ries II 75
Grammar/Beyond Good and Evil/Nietzsche: Subject formation suggests real entities. Value judgements and statements of reality appear identical in their linguistic form. Terms are linked to attributes. Thus philosophy believes that it has made the real properties of things visible.
Danto III 209
Language/Grammar/Nietzsche/Danto: E. g. humility: is not an achievement of the weak but their nature, just as brutality is not a crime but the nature of the strong.
Danto: something similar had set up thrasymachos in Politeia: he trivialized his definition of justice as acting in the interests of the stronger party. Analogously, a mathematician is not a mathematician when he makes a mistake.
DantoVsThrasymachos/DantoVsNietzsche: both have stumbled upon the grammar: they have elevated a triviality of logic to a metaphysics of morality.
NietzscheVsThrasymachos/Danto: Nevertheless, however Nietzsche is more subtle than Thrasymachos: for Nietzsche, the world consists in a way more of pulsations than pulsating objects. But pulsation cannot pulsate, so to speak, only objects can pulsate.
Danto III 210
Nietzsche/Danto: Nietzsche knew that it would be difficult to come up with a language for all of this - a language that I think is made up of verbs and adverbs, but not of nouns and adjectives.
