While capitalism is geared in such a way that someone like Nietzsche could not exist anymore – living as a philosopher outside of the academy is virtually impossible in today’s society, it is interesting that “Dr.
Nietzsche” decided that the confines of academic life were too banal for him to actually create something on the scale of Thus Spoke Zarathustra He left German University system because German philosophy was filled with ‘watered down counterfeiters’ and philosophy was slowly going bankrupt The Herd mentality that Nietzsche spoke about throughout his life is re-appropriated by Klossowski.
It serves as a critique of Modern Decadence But what Klossowski points out is that Nietzsche also began to worry about the excess of reasons, needs, goals, and demands which could be equally as oppressive. Meaning, life in modern society has become so preoccupied with choice and the fulfillment of basic necessities Cell Phones, television, mediocre forms of entertainment that the tragic-existential crises that inspire groundbreaking philosophy has become subsumed by capitalism – re-appropriated – and absolutely domesticated.

Klossowski manages to dive internal to Nietzsche, digging through personal correspondence and social contexts in order to kloesowski to connect the vicious circle that of Nietzsche’ life that was exemplified within his philosophy. Here the circle is a lack of stability as there is no melding point to stop the circulation no God to stand still in reference to.
Spinning this dialectical flip, Klossowski shows us a Nietzsche who twists in on himself as sicknes This is a pretty amazing book on Nietzsche. Spinning this dialectical flip, Klossowski shows us a Nietzsche who twists in on himself as sickness vucious health, relative terminologies become unbearable so that he not only rejects the stablization that philosophy would seek to provide but also the aesthetic of stablization himself throughout all of time and history.
We end with a phantasm, a twin, by which we are constantly ourselves but also klossowskii how we are other. This is another way of looking at the phenomenal split. We are only our identity because there are aspects of ourselves that we mark out as being not us. Nietzsche would have us wander in and claim those last parts as well, as being incorporate for us.
In this way, Derrida and Foucault would re-invoke Nietzsche because his philosophy and his genealogy would also serve to include parts of the outside as necessary for the inside to be what it is.

Klossowski’s approach– running through highly specific passages of the man’s writing with a fine-toothed comb and then extracting a comprehensive, essential approach to Nietzsche’s worldview– seems somewhat hung-up on structuralist pedantry, and the attempt to ground the idea of the eternal return in the body reminds me altogether too much of those old people who measure their health by how frequently klowsowski shit.
