PHI 247 9/11/07 The aphorism : The short, terse, witty & incisive remark or proverb, that expresses a far wider truth than the strict meaning of the term it employs The aphorism destroys the possibility of a fixed, literal system of meaning or reference because it is essentially incomplete . It demands that an interpreter operation be performed upon it for its very intelligibility Literal > Figurative (1. Simile 2. Metaphor) We’ve been told there is a purpose to all things – divine justice will reward good deeds and punish evil- doers. The notion of the “real real”, or absolute truth, is what Nietzche sees as the ultimate deception. The greatest fraud is there is some universal moral order, false God, morality through religion, and our over- exaggerated faith in reason. These three beliefs devalue the world in which we live in, they fracture our lives and strengthen our weaknesses. . Paragraph 3:10 – Nietzsche identifies himself with the energetic. His discourse declines reliance upon strict definition.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
