Ambiguity and the Absolute

Frank Chouraqui

Fordham University Press

This chapter questions Nietzsche’s insistence that our relationship to truth is a relationship of incorporation. Truth is not something to “know” but something to incorporate. The concept of incorporation is Nietzsche’s device for overcoming the inside-outside oppositions. Incorporating truth involves that one could “be” the truth, and therefore, that truth may be one of the names of Being, a Being that, therefore, must be considered as able to overcome the inside-outside divide without rendering it meaningless.

Keywords:   Death of God, Self-becoming, Incorporation, Health, Nietzsche’s Ethics
