Wasting Oneself Away: Nietzsche and Schürmann on the Expropriation of the Subject
Södertörn University, School of Culture and Education, Philosophy.ORCID iD: 0000-0002-1136-2977
2023 (English)In: Philosophy today (Celina), ISSN 0031-8256, E-ISSN 2329-8596, Vol. 67, no 3, p. 659-675Article in journal (Refereed) Published
Abstract [en]

In this article, I examine Reiner Schürmann's interpretation of Nietzsche's critique of subjectivity. By focusing on Nietzsche's reflections on the difference between weight and lightness, I analyze Nietzsche's critique of the appropriative nature of man and relate it to his understanding of the expropriative tendency in human existence. In the second part of the article, this Nietzschean understanding of subjectivity is developed through Schürmann's interpretation of Nietzsche. Here, the onus is placed on Schürmann's understanding of "the will to power." For Schürmann, the will to power is the completion of man's appropriative nature at the same time as it is points beyond subjectivity and towards an understanding of man as an expropriative being. The aim of the article is to show up Nietzsche's importance for Schürmann's thought and to investigate how his interpretation can shed light on what existence would become if it transcended the limits of the appropriating subject.
