The Vitalistic Components of the Nietzschean Man: Society, Culture, Education
Keywords:life, genius, pain, terror, society, culture, education, transformation
The nietzschean man is composed on the basis of life’s attempt to realize the terror, the horror and the absurdity hiding in itself. In others words it concerns an extremely dangerous, tragic as well as uncertain demand fulfilled only by means of society, culture and education. As a consequence of this triple help emerges a new category of men called to struggle against the tragic content of existence. It’s about a coming generation with “intrepidity of vision”, which does not, however, have relations with the bloodthirsty barbarians. This is because its power does not deliver from the brutal force but from the intellectual ability to stand and transform the pain into representations justifying the world.
