Nietzsche as Formative Thinker
MetadataShow full item record
For much of the twentieth century it was widely assumed that only one sort or type of philosophy was needed. In this paper I argue that different sorts of philosophy may be required against the teleology that insists upon a comprehensive philosophy, and place special emphasis on the importance of formative philosophy. Second, I show Nietzsche to be a thinker of precisely this kind of philosophy whereby metaphilosophical perspectives allow him to develop a distinctly formational philosophia. Hence in the first section an account of formative philosophy is given while in the second section a discussion of Nietzsche will illustrate the reasons why Nietzsche is a formative philosopher.
