(p.81) Chapter 3 Nietzsche's Emerging Internal Realism
Nietzsche on Epistemology and Metaphysics

Tsarina Doyle

Edinburgh University Press

This chapter examines Friedrich Nietzsche's early writings. It argues that his later views regarding the perspectival yet objective character of our knowledge were present in an embryonic form in his early thought, but these views struggled to emerge in the midst of his early immersion in the philosophical frameworks of both Immanuel Kant and Arthur Schopenhauer. It explains that in his 1873 On Truth and Lies in a Nonmoral Sense, Nietzsche remained trapped within the appearance/reality distinction though he already had the conceptual resources to overcome it in his 1872 The Birth of Tragedy.

Keywords:   Friedrich Nietzsche, knowledge, Immanuel Kant, Arthur Schopenhauer, appearance/reality distinction, truth, The Birth of Tragedy
