Vicious Circles, Virtuous Circles, and Meeting Merleau-Ponty in the Middle
This short transitional section reformulates the acquisitions of Nietzsche’s cosmological thought in terms of his encounter with phenomenological ontology through Heidegger’s engagement with him. It is argued that like Merleau-Ponty, Nietzsche regarded the failure of self-identity to be the essential feature of Being and therefore that his refusal to exit metaphysics, which Heidegger laments, is in fact more conform to Being than Heideggerian ontology insofar as it refuses to hypostasize the ontological difference. For Nietzsche and Merleau-Ponty alike, there is no Being outside of the beings.
