Overview

The Will to Truth, which is to tempt us to many a hazardous enterprise, the famous Truthfulness of which all philosophers have hitherto spoken with respect, what questions has this Will to Truth not laid before us! What strange, perplexing, questionable questions! It is already a long story; yet it seems as if it were hardly commenced. Is it any wonder if we at last grow distrustful, lose patience, and turn impatiently away? That this Sphinx teaches us at last to ask questions ourselves? WHO is it really that puts questions to us here? WHAT really is this "Will to Truth" in us? In fact we made a long halt at the question as to the origin of this Will-until at last we came to an absolute standstill before a yet more fundamental question. We inquired about the VALUE of this Will. Granted that we want the truth: WHY NOT RATHER untruth? And uncertainty? Even ignorance? The problem of the value of truth presented itself before us-or was it we who presented ourselves before the problem? Which of us is the Oedipus here? Which the Sphinx? It would seem to be a rendezvous of questions and notes of interrogation. And could it be believed that it at last seems to us as if the problem had never been propounded before, as if we were the first to discern it, get a sight of it, and RISK RAISING it? For there is risk in raising it, perhaps there is no greater risk.

    This book is beyond good

    This is a must read. It provides valuable insight into the herd and how the herd manipulates the individual. Nietzsche's analysis of society is courageous and bold. For those that have never read Nietzsche, it may take a while to truly understand this book. He takes controversial stands, not all of which I am in agreement with. But that is why I am reviewing his book and not mine.

    My story pt 1

    Ok so here is the story of my life. I think youll find it boring but oh well. I have no real memory of my child hood untill i was five moons old. I had four brothers and one sister. I canot remember her name or my brothers'. My dad was darkclaw of bloodclan. When we were under attack by revenge clan. Bloodclan did not used to be strong mind that. My dad stayed in the nusery fighting off all cats. i remember one of my brothers left and was never seen ir heard from again. Untill later but read part 2 . Anyway, revengestar walked in. My dad fought him. Revengestar killed him instantly. He started rounding up the kits and my sister was next. I jumped on revengestars ear and it tore so i got a tighter grip. He yowled in pain while the kits ran away. I jumped and ran for my life. He was aboutto get me when... Moonclan renforcements. A warrior named moonfur took me to the safty of moonclan camp. I stayed there hoping there were survivors. Read part 2 for more!
