Early Nietzsche and the Critique of Judgement

(p.73) 3 Early Nietzsche and the Critique of Judgement
Nietzsche's Critiques

R. Kevin Hill

Oxford University Press

This chapter discusses Nietzche's reading of the third Critique. It also demonstrates that the standard interpretation of early Nietzsche's development and debt to Schopenhauer generates difficulties that a more Kantian reading avoids. It then talks about Nietzsche's own edifying myth — that this world is the product of something he called the ‘Dionysian world-artist’. It explains that his myth owes more to Kant's idea of a divine transcendent understanding which projects an empirical world than to Schopenhauer's atheistic cosmology of a mindless ‘will’ that ‘objectifies’ itself in phenomena.

Keywords:   Schopenhauer, Critique, myth, Dionysian world-artist, empirical world, atheistic cosmology
