PHI 247 9.27.07 The “Gay Science,” or “Joyful Wisdom” as 1) an affirmative understanding of the world – stressing our “naturalization,” and this entails themes of the “Death of God.” The “will to prove,” and the “eternal return” 2) a positive practical teaching for conduct of one’s life – to attain a fulfillment of one’s capacities, and to secure a sense of autonomy, freedom, from the pettiness and shame of the “herd morality” 3) a critical disposition so as to deal with the complete life concerns of the developing individual In Nietzsche’s sense, the individual must embrace nature in order to become naturalized. We must affirm its chaos. (112, 343) Our competitive nature comes as a need for a need to create, to harness our overflowing power. (307, remarks on criticism) We criticize, and negate, (evidence of our vital energies) because something inside us wants to live and affirm. … (349) Each moment heralds an infinite feature. Reality is stamped as becoming, as a continuum.
