The Aftermath

Show Summary Details


After their break, the personal and philosophical paths of the former friends diverged. Giving up his unsuccessful aspirations towards an academic career, Paul Rée studied medicine and spent his remaining years as a country physician in West Prussia. His failure to progress in philosophical theorizing is evident in several later works, as well as in his posthumously published Philosophie, whose content is discussed. Nietzsche, in contrast, emerged from the lowest point in his emotional life to enter the period of his most original and radical thinking, which is outlined here and explored in detail in the following chapters.

Keywords: false pathos; idealism; revenge; theory of knowledge
