Needing to explain the relationship between bodily and conceptual vitality for my upcoming paper with Nick Fiorello, I spent yesterday with The Anti-Christ, Ecce Homo, and Twilight of the Idols, then moved to the mighty Zarathustra, and ended with On the Genealogy of Morality and Christopher Middleton’s Selected Letters of Friedrich Nietzsche. This little visit turned into a paper that will be published by Counter-Currents. Since it is based on my reading of his letters and obscure lectures, it might be eye opening for many. Nietzsche was a profoundly lonely man. While physical debilitation did not stop him from writing – bearing headaches, nausea, and near blindness – his pathos of isolation may have killed him. The paper includes a new version of the Peter Gast paper found on this site below.
