I think it would be best if this was dealt with in a separate topic, so if anyone wants to respond to my comment I will start a new discussion with this post.

I am way behind on my reading of N, having only read some few fragments here and there. What attracts me to his thinking is the emphasis on power in ethical reasoning. This for me is central to understanding our motivations and system of values. What do we seek in this world, what motivates us, what drives us, what are we passionate about, other than experiencing life as powerfully as we can? And what else besides a specific power or ability can provide us with powerful experiences? This is why I have joined this group anyway, to pursue this line of thinking and see where it leads me. Hope I get some good responses from someone here!

@ st. jimmy.... i've only read "antichrist" so far, but i think his feelings on religion and xianity are more true today than ever.

God is dead and we have killed him.

It has been years since I read Nietsche. What are your favorite works and why? How do you think his writings are relevant today?

i'll come back to this, but think about how he says that God's shadow still remains. If God is dead, where is his shadow? It's in the dominant varieties of Kantian philosophy, especially Kant's metaphysics of morals. However, natural science and its metaphysics are also in God's shadow, namely in the virtue of truth. Nietzsche wanted to get away from the virtue of truth and looked more towards the virtue of usefulness.
