Truth in Context: Nietzsche's Affirmation of Tragic Morality

Truth in Context: Nietzsche's Affirmation of Tragic Morality

Date: April 14, 2011
Creator: Heister, Luke & Yaffe, Martin D.
Description: This paper discusses research on Friedrich Nietzsche's affirmation of tragic morality. In 'Ancient Tragedy and the Origins of Modern Science', Michael Davis states that the "beauty of tragedy is its presentation of the moral necessity of chance" (3). The work of Nietzsche, using metaphor and ambiguous, paradoxical language, can be decoded as a discussion regarding the human desire for, yet inability to reach, autonomy. Nietzsche, though flirting at times with the realization of establishing human autonomy, ultimately affirms the kind of morality relative to the ancient tragedian's worldview. Nietzsche develops this intellectual discussion through the means of conceptual thought experiments and an analysis of mythical archetypes.
