Preview

We return to Joyce and an irony directed at religious belief that is, nevertheless, not satire. Finally, beliefs about heaven and hell are rooted in the moral world within. Nietzsche's perspectivism is relevant to that. Our image of heaven and hell is finally an image of how we judge ourselves.

Keywords: James Joyce; irony; Nietzsche; perspectivism; world within
