(PDF) I Am Dynamite A Life of Friedrich Nietzsche AUTHOR Sue Prideaux

The Little Red Book dK makes me want to tour Switzerland and northern Italy I had actually visited Basel and Lucerne prior to reading the book and now want to go backThis was a fun book to read even while trying to sort through Nietzsche s aphorisms I am frightened Nietzsche had written by the thought of what unualified and unsuitable people may invoke my authority oneay Yet that is the torment of every great teacher of mankind he knows that given the circumstances and the accidents he can become a Blended Family (A contemporary BWWM African American Interracial Romance) ((The April and Derek Series) Book 1) disaster as well as a blessing to mankind 374 5Ironically Nietzsche wrote these words in a letter to his sister Elizabeth who as Prideaux painfully shows abused her brother and his thought than anyone else associating it with Nazi ideology in a manner that echoes to thisay Hopefully Prideaux s biography will ispel the last lingering notions that Nietzsche was an anti Semite and proto Nazi already intrepidly addressed by Walter Kaufmann before her The biography was compelling and surprisingly sad Poor misunderstood ill fated Nietzsche Prideaux oes a brilliant job of vividly portraying his life throughout the story and it Alien Savior (Zerconian Warriors, does read like a story you feel as if you re right there alongside Nietzsche thinking along with him and sharing his troubles I wrote a longer piece about biographizing Nietzsche which if you re interested you can find right here on my website A book like this needs to be composed like music All the elements must be gently pulled in so the main themes can shine through Prideaux accomplishes this with such great finesse Essentially this book has 3 main threads that she stays true to for the entire biography Chronology of Nietzsche s Life filled with colourfuletailsAn Intellectual History of his Philosophical Development flooded with bookish Lets Clap, Jump, Sing Shout; Dance, Spin Turn It Out! detailsHistorical Context as it Relates to Nietzsche with the goal of setting the record straightWe can see Nietzscheevelop from his early 20 s True to any young man this section of the book is the most lively and fastest to read The early pages are packed with books he read what he thought of them his keen friendship with Wagner his musical lifeNext the biography moves into his middle years where the intellectual Italian Grammar (Quickstudy Reference Guides - Academic) development slowsown but his private life certainly picks up He s essentially come into his own for what he believes in The rest reads like a well not a gossipy newspaper column He s still a great thinker Prideaux s writing still sings perhaps he s simply a man who fell in love And if this biography reads as beautifully as fiction our villain is clearly moving onto the chessboardThis final section is where I was rendered on the floor in emotional turmoil Again Prideaux s writing keeps the complex periods of history clear easy to read Which only emphasizes the tragedy of thoughts gone wrong These were an emotionally crippling couple of pages with exuisitely concise summaries of Nietzsche s final self published works She includes spoilers on these few pages if you consider lines like Descartes I Think Therefore I Am to be a spoilerThe final pages include Aphorisms as a great tribute Near year by year Chronology from 1844 1935Endnotes citing the sources little to no commentaryA pretty fun sounding Bibliography for book nerdsI Cities of Farmers d recommend this to fans of Nietzsche his naysayers most of all She reduces him back the mere man he wanted to be removing the legend that his sister painstakingly tried to build up As a result perhaps Nietzsche can finally become impish smile you have to read this book his works to find out My 1st Impressions Video filmed before I read this final review it gives a very brief update to the 1st Impressions less information than this written review Nietzsche is now preceded by his reputation to such a monstrous extent that it takes a bit of an effort to overcome all the received wisdom which in my case was the only wisdom I had having read only one of his books and virtually nothing else about him Oh yeah Nietzsche wasn t he a bit right wing Tooled around with a terrific stareeclaiming things about the Muddying the Waters death of god Women hated him Nazis loved him Something like thatHe comes across in this fascinating biography as a smart unusual and not unkindly figure but one overmastered by the emotionalemands of his family by an imposed solitariness and the lifelong ill health which he knew appeared to b English Am Dynamite A Life of NietzscheThis book is no Stolen Tomorrows: Understanding and Treating Women's Childhood Sexual Abuse doubt super interesting and written in an immersive manner but while I m happy I received an ARC it was in a format that can only be read via Adobe Digital Editions meaning on the screen and the book has 700 pages So I will buy the hardcover instead By skimming the pages to get an impression I saw that this text is certainly worthwhile A mostly captivating biography of a widely misunderstood man I am left with the impression of a solitary lonely and confused soul wandering about moving from place to place in search of belonging and fleeing his oppressive mother and sister There are brief intervals of reciprocity with Wagner and Lou Salome but in the end he is a man very much alone Next time I pick up a book he wrote I will approach it with aeepened understanding of the origins of his ideas When asked for recommendations by those unversed in philosophy I most commonly recommend Plato and Nietzsche Both are enduringly popular Both are immediately accessible Though often misinterpreted both also escribe the antipodes of Western philosophy the metaphysical and the anti metaphysical the classical religious and the modern secular idealsAs the Church has misappropriated Plato for its purposes so much of the abuse of Friedrich Nietzsche 1844 1900 stemmed from the ecades of control of his estate by his racist sister Elisabeth 1846 1935 and her increasingly Nazi entourage This has been substantially rectified for American readers by the republication of his works unsullied by her self serving ministrations by such translators and biographers as W Kaufmann and RJ Hollingdale Now with S Prideaux s current biography such reconstructions of this man have attained a greater completenessWhile Kaufmann such reconstructions of this man have attained a greater completenessWhile Kaufmann one most responsible for the reintroduction of Nietzsche to the English reading public produced a magisterial biography of the philosopher in 1950 rev 1968 his emphasis was on the evolution of Nietzsche s writing and ideas Prideaux s particular virtue is in having provided a very readable and fully fleshed portrait of the man and those closest to him She is particularly strong in providing a lucid exposition of his intellectual evelopment in relation to his physical condition and erotic life without thereby belittling either the man or His WorkWhere Prideaux Is workWhere Prideaux is is in placing Nietzsche within his philosophical context neglecting I think his ependence via Schopenhauer and others on Kant But this is the objection of a philosophically inclined reader and hers is first and foremost a biography a very good one which should appeal to specialists and generalists alik. Tual and emotional life with a novelist's insight and sensitivityShe also produces unforgettable portraits of the people who were most important to him including Richard and Cosima Wagner Lou Salom the femme fatale who broke his heart; and his sister Elizabeth a rabid German nationalist and anti Semite who manipulated his texts and turned the Nietzsche archive into a estination for Nazi ideologues I Am Dynamite is the essential biography for anyone seeking to understand history's most misunderstood philosoph. I Am Dynamite A Life of Friedrich NietzscheNietzsche was the primary philosopher who inspired me to pursue the field Not that he offers a coherent belief system or ready to hand tools for life but he oes provide the type of critical perspective necessary to begin uestioning one s life His thought has so much become a part of my own that whenever I revisit his works I find aphorisms that mirror my own The Rise of Nerd Politics dispositions in ways I never realized had sunk in I feel aso many who have been inspired by him an emotional connection with his thought given which he holds a Motivational Enhancement Therapy Manual: A Clinical Research Guide for Therapists Treating Individuals With Alcohol Abuse and Dependence dear place for me All that is to say that I was both anxious and apprehensive to read a biography on his personThe task of writing about the life of Nietzsche is not without its perils With a hankering after the irrational and revelry it is just as vital to capture the setting and atmosphere within which Nietzsche s thoughteveloped so as to impress the mood that makes up such a part of Nietzsche s aesthetic Prideaux Boku no Hero Academia dj - 爆豪、ケツの穴開発するってよ。 [Bakugou, Ketsu no Ana Kaihatsu Surutte yo.] does a superb job in recreating the environment that so affected and afflicted this tormented thinker With Nietzsche s own penchant for colorfulescriptions Prideaux works hard to maintain a similar flourish without becoming garish Nor can one write a biography of Nietzsche without addressing the philosophical thought that consumed him Prideaux adroitly weaves within the story of his life not only Nietzsche s own thought but that of the likes of Empedocles Kant Schopenhauer and in a manner that seems natural and easy to Manga Mania Magical Girls and Friends How to Draw the Super Popular Action Fantasy Characters of Manga digest However I uestion Prideaux s choice to give synopses of Nietzsche s books particularly those after his Untimely Meditations Nietzsche s works are far too broad and nuanced to neatly sum up in a couple of pages and I fear that these sections may mislead the reader into false starts and premature conclusions about his worksWhat I find most commendable about this biography is that Prideauxoes not mythologize unsubstantiated events in Nietzsche s life not even those considered pivotal nor speculate about them other than where it is further noted by contemporaries making up the primary sources consulted For example the time in which it is supposed that Nietzsche may have contracted syphilis is passingly commented upon with only a slight reference to Mann s grander allusions to it in his novel Doctor Faustus Rather the book is well researched and is composed with Inside Academia descriptive care to fill in the setting The historical facts are treated like a pre composed libretto needing only to be pieced together and then inlayed by the greater orchestral composition that is Prideaux s text I imagine that some may be critical of theivagations into other notable individual s lives such as Wagner and F rster but I found these to be sparse and refreshing Nietzsche lived Protest Politics in the Marketplace during an exceptional time the Paris Commune the Franco Prussian War emergence of Symbolism etc and many of the individuals both greater and lesser known he was personally acuainted with As such I take these additions to be an asset to the whole in their providing important context to Nietzsche s acuaintance and reciprocating influence Incipit Tragoedia When Zarathustra was thirty years old he left his home and the Lake of Urmi and went into the mountains There he enjoyed his spirit and his solitude and for ten yearsid not weary of it But at last his heart changed begins aphorism 342 of The Gay Science The same could be said of that fateful Celestial Tears Hidden Alchemy day in Turinuring the winter of 1889 Incipit Tragoedia when he finally went under and succumbed to the madness within which he would spend just over the next ten years His final The Exposition of Artistic Research decade of life is heartbreaking to read about and Prideaux spares no punches inefending his legacy with a ROMANCE (BWWM Contemporary Romance Boxset) (African American Pregnancy Interracial Multicultural Book 1) detailed account of the misappropriations of his

author explains the origins of ZarathustraWhy id Nietzsche choose Zarathustra Zarathustra also called Zoroaster was a Persian prophet who probably lived some time between the twelfth and sixth

Sent it to his publisher escribing it in his cover letter as a fifth gospel In 1888 Kaiser Wilhelm I had Nature-Inspired Metaheuristic Algorithms died at last at the age of ninety Seventeen years previously he had accepted the German crown in the Hall of Mirrors in Versailles to Nietzsche s greatistress and fear for the imbalance of Europe In the intervening years the Kaiser and his Iron Chancellor Bismarck had famously forged the archconservative and repressive Second Reich on industrialization capitalism unscrupulous expansionism the Protestant Church artistic conservatism and censorship All this had coagulated into one massive congested sclerotic nationalist repressive and authoritarian world power as Nietzsche had feared would happenAs a university student in the late 1880s and early 90s Harry Kessler executor Nietzsche s literary estate was part of the Raskolnikov generation those on whom Dostoyevsky s novel Crime and Punishment had a profound effect Kessler served as witness at the trial of a highborn fellow student who shot and killed his working class girlfriend after which the murderer failed to kill himself because his shot into his own chest was not well aimed It was a nihilist act inspired by Dostoyevsky s book which made an unuantifiable impression on the first post Christian The Alchemical Mandala A Survey of the Mandala in the Western Esoteric Traditions despairing generation A rash of such murders among students overcome by the greatisgust the will to nothingness became known as the Raskolnikov effect after the anti hero in Dostoyevsky s bookThree years after leaving university Kessler felt able to write There is probably no twenty to thirty year old tolerably educated man in Germany today who The Alcohol Blackout: Walking, Talking, Unconscious Lethal does not owe to Nietzsche a part of his worldview or has not been or less influenced by him1893 became an important yearuring which Nietzsche s work caught on with the artistic avant garde of both Berlin and Paris to wide effect through painting playwriting poetry and music Scandinavians also set the Nietzschean fireThis would have been astonishing enough to Nietzsche who had so often expressed his horror at the idea of having Digital Feminist Activism: Girls and Women Fight Back Against Rape Culture disciples but the political tenor of the Nietzsche cult would have horrified him further still The approach of the First World War gave impetus to a bellicose form of Nietzscheism that took the will to power as a moral teaching sanctioning violence and ruthlessness the bermensch as the greatest brute and the blond beast as an incentive toward a racial breeding programNewspaper articles by Nietzsche s anti Semitic fascist sister Elizabeth encouraged these twisted interpretations enthusiasticallyescribing her brother as a friend of warHis sister along with her anti Semitic husband gathered together out of context fragments from Nietzsche s notebooks adding their own ideas as if they were his into a volume titled Triumph of the Will with Nietzsche identified as the author on the cover and the title page This book was eagerly adopted by Mussolini as a justification for his fascist nationalism and thirst for war In Germany the Weimar period was a gestation period of this work Hitler and the Nazis became admirers of both the book and Elizabeth Philosopher Oswald Spengler made things worse by incorporating Social Darwinism into the alleged beliefs of Nietzsche The misunderstood terms bermensch and master morality served Spengler s purposeSoon after philosopher Martin Heidegger joined the Nazi Party the notorious German professor Alfred B umler who had issued a new edition of The Triumph of the Will oversaw the first book burning in Berlin A film The Story of Han Xiangzi: The Alchemical Adventures of a Daoist Immortal (China Program Book) directed by Leni Riefenstah of the 1934 Nuremberg Rally was titled Triumph of the Will as a nod to the influence of the book Of course Hitler never actually read any Nietzsche including the phony Triumph of the Will but simply saw it as useful propaganda On hereathbed in 1935 Elizabeth had Hitler s Mein Kampf read to her aloud Hitler attended her funeral I had not read a full biography of before I had tried to work through some of his major works in of Nietzsche before had tried to work through some of his major works in and knew of the odd course that his writings had taken after his Alien Mate (Zerconian Warriors, death but lack any sense of a life trajectory That always struck me as odd for a philosopheressayist who has proven to be so influential Sue Prideaux has written a readable and engaging biography of Nietzsche that has helped to fill these holes for meHaving said this Io not know that I am much clearer about actually getting Nietzsche The book clearly communicates the role of his thought in identifying how modernism has weakened the ability of religion and philosophy to provide meaning and value for people provided that the levelling tendencies of modern thought are followed through consistently and honestly That was already fairly clear to me Prideaux s account highlights the problem that such a philosophy presents how The Responsible Critic: Essays on African Literature, in Honor of Professor Ben Obumselu does one find meaning in a world with no certainty and no principles a philosophy of perhaps That this would pose tensions for individuals trying to justify a place in the world is clear and the path that Nietzsche steered through the neighborhoods of madness is not surprising It was a basic part of his own story lineThere are a few aspects to Nietzsche s story as told here that were striking to meFirst what an odd intellectual environment he worked in He gets a professorship in philology without completing anyegree because of two influential mentors Then he begins to move in completely Race, Culture and Identity in Francophone West African and Caribbean Literature and Theory: From Negritude to Creolite (Francophone Cultures and Literatures, Vol. 32) differentirections away from philology and towards philosophy such that students stop signing up for his courses He then eventually leaves the university and wanders around Central Europe going to scenic areas writing books that nobody read and whose format was understandable as riven by his health than by any content He id not attain much success at all in his lifetime I have trouble getting my head around just how Advancing Biological Farming different this intellectual world is from anything today especially in big time philosophySecond you have to love family right How the influence of his mother and especially his sister was associated with Nietzsche s work is hard to comprehend especially on substantive issues that affected how his work has been viewed since hiseath antisemitism It is hard to see how his legacy could have not been confused given the particularities of his estate and its managersThird the limitations of 19th century medicine are striking and one wonders what was really going on both in terms of his inherited physical Cards Of Alchemy disorders and the bizarre treatments he received The link between the socialcultural and physical aspects of insanity are strikingFourth he received virtually no recognitionuring his lifetime when he would have been sane enough to recognize it Add to that the shift in intellectual life at the turn of the century and it seems like a bad joke on the part of the gods at Nietzsche s expense Throw in WW1 and the Nazis and the story only gets stranger The strange relationship with Wagner and his mistress is part of this and a separate strange part of the cultural storyFinally the boo.
