Ambiguity and the Absolute

This chapter traces the consequences of the earlier two as they structure Nietzsche’s mature thinking about cosmology. Nietzsche’s final position on the matter, famously expressed in the thought of eternal recurrence, reveals that the original determination of subjects and objects as self-differentiated determines the entire fate of the world and the ultimate failure of the world to come to its own completion, leading to eternal recurrence as an opening of a history that cannot come to closure.
