Nietzsche on Self-Differentiation and Genealogy

Nietzsche on Self-Differentiation and Genealogy

(p.21) 1 Nietzsche on Self-Differentiation and Genealogy
Ambiguity and the Absolute

Frank Chouraqui

Fordham University Press

This chapter traces Nietzsche’s thinking on the origins of the human ability for predication. Predication for Nietzsche is a process that transforms objects into what they are not. This primary ability of ours reveals that the essence of both the world and subjectivity is self-differentiation. For this ability to take distance from the world which predication exhibits, could not be grounded in any self-identity. “Being” comes to designate self-differentiated objects.

Keywords:   Genealogy, Reflectivity, Intentionality, Individuation, Difference, Predication
