The Case of Wagner 1 y The Ethics of History: On the Uses and Disadvantages ofHistory for Life It is generally agreed that Nietzsche gave dramatic and ground-breaking expression to notions of historicism, relativism, perspectivism, and nihilism, notions which, among other things, imply the artificiality and transitoriness of moral and political standards. What is striking about this general agreement is that it prevails whether historicism, relativism, perspectivism, and nihilism are hailed as tokens of liberation and empowerment or denounced as scourges of the human spirit.

Introduction {! 13 A Path in Nietzsche's Thought There are many paths in Nietzsche's thought. The path I trace proceeds by way of detailed explorations of a range of Nietzsche's major books, it goes to the foundations and the peak of his reflections on the best life, and it reveals the ethics of an immoralist. 37 Part I, «Nietzsche's Histories:' deals with Nietzsche's three major attempts, spanning his Gareer, to clarify the significance of art, morality, and religion through the exploration of ancient history.

For Nietzsche's madman, the proper and only worthy response to the death of God involves neither the negation of religious yearning nor the extirpation of the impulse to transcendence. On the contrary. "44 By ascribing to human beings the power to kill God and the capacity to become a god, the madman effects a profound break with traditional Christianity. At the same time, the new obligation the madman assigns to human beings preserves an important element of the Christian tradition, because of the madman's heavy dependence upon Christian language and categories to articulate humanity's new goal, and indeed because of the very need for what is sacred and holy that underlies the quest to become a god.
