    Default What did Nietzsche say? (What is your favourite western philosophy and why?)

    Not just Nietzsche, all prominent western philosophers, what did they have to say?

    Edit :-

    A better way to approach this subject would be to ask -

    Whats your favourite western philosophy and why?

    Since it is highly unlikely that anyone of you would be bothered to teach me even slightly the names and theories of prominent western philosophers and their theories, I am cleverly adding the additional question of ' what your favourite western philosophy and why?' to the title.

    Absolutely nil when it comes to knowledge on western philosophy I am.

    I consider western philosophy a single dogma.

    Most of western thought can be summed up by this "I know nothing, you know nothing, but there is something to be known. What is it?".

    Of course that is such a generalization that it is almost meaningless..almost.

    I want to start reading Chomsky. I'm guessing he'll be remembered as the pinnacle of modern western thought. I really don't have a favorite..for the most part I think they were idiots.

    Not many people know the famous quote from him shortly before his death "You know, I've been really wrong about all this and none of you had the balls to say so", that's my favourite Nietzsche quote.

    The entire breadth and depth of western philosophy kant really be expressed in anything less then at least entire essays dedicated to it's various schools of thought, if ones intention is to grasp western philosophy in it's whole (if one wants the white bread superficial version of it, then certain intro level texts usually suffice for such the task).

    Also Nietzsche said a lot of things concerning various different things, and although I've read him, I really don't have the time nor energy to summarize him in a concise manner (which would be the opposite intention of his wise writings; one must go to Nietzsche, he does not come to you).

    I'm sorry, where did Nietzsche say that?

    It wasnt his last words though, I imagine they would have went something like:

    "who would have imagined hell had so many means of torment? Argh! ARGH!!! ARGHHHHHH!!!! AAAAAAAAAAAAARGHHHHH!!!!!"
