On Time, Being, and Hunger

Juan Manuel Garrido

Fordham University Press

This chapter briefly analyzes Nietzsche's late theory of life as will to power. It is possible to draw from Nietzsche's views a critique to and a genealogy of the traditional conception of life as self-appropriating and self-organizing process of not ceasing to be. The “living being” is the outcome of the “reactive” will to power, which substantializes the forces and turns them into “capacities,” “processes” and “selves”. The chapter reconstructs Nietzsche's vision of life as an active dis-appropriation of forces that will be characterized in relation to the ideas of becoming and of eternal recurrence.

Keywords:   Nietzsche, will to power, organism, metabolism, hunger, time, becoming, eternal recurrence
