|One of my idol, UKK, who had the will.|
freedom is the will to be responsible for ourselves.in accordance with Friedrich Nietzsche Twilight of the Idols, Or, How to Philosophize with the hammer.
... It is to preserve the distance which separates us from other men. To grow more indifferent to hardship, to severity, to privation, and even to life itself.In actually, Nietzsche suggests that, in reality, a will can never be absolutely free or "unfree"- rather, he continues, any particular will is going to be strong or weak to some actual degree, ruling indeed though ruled in turn.
So,he claims, our free will is just a
boorish simplicity, a long folly, owing to our extravagant pride.from Beyond Good and Evil.
The desire for "freedom of will" in the superlative, metaphysical sense, such as still holds sway, unfortunately, in the minds of the half-educated, the desire to bear the entire and ultimate responsibility for one's actions oneself, and to absolve God, the world, ancestors, chance, and society therefrom, involves nothing less than to be precisely this causa sui, and, with... daring, to pull oneself up into existence by the hair, out of the swamps of nothingness.Perhaps you would like to contrast this with another short bit from Twilight of the Idols.
