The Image o Truth in Friedrich Nietzsche’s Philosophy [Imaginea adevarului in filosofia lui Friedrich Nietzsche]


  • Marius – Florin DUDAN

    () (doctorand, bursier al Academiei Romane)


The main objective of this approach is to show that the problem of truth is a real one in the nietzschean philosophy and, to outline the general framework of the new image of truth suggested by Nietzsche. In this respect, I assumed that the views Nietzsche expresses as regards language respectively reason are essential. Language simplifies reality, captures the nonessential and it is always untimely; reason performs with “logical fictions”. Thus, the so-called truth is the expression of tampering with the reality. Assuming these, the problem of gnoseological truth must be rethought in other terms. Nietzsche builds the image of truth starting from hermeneutical foundations, the truth being an active process: the work of interpretation of the will to power. The dynamic of building the truth is therefore, expressed by a subtle movement in the space between literalness and metaphor.
