(p.119) 4 Space, Time, and Idealism
Nietzsche's Critiques

R. Kevin Hill

Oxford University Press

This chapter discusses that Nietzsche's ‘naturalism’ is best understood as a rejection of the transcendental idea of space and time, as Kant argues for in the ‘Transcendental Aesthetic’. It notes that this creates a puzzle about how to understand the relationship between appearances and reality, provided Nietzsche' continuing adherence to Kantian thesis that the mind imposes order on its experiences on the one hand, and his abandonment of things-in-themselves, on the other. It also talks about Nietzsche's employment of ‘cosmological’ argument in association with the doctrine of eternal recurrence.

Keywords:   naturalism, transcendental aesthetic, Kantian thesis, cosmological argument, eternal recurrence, idealism, space, time
