An Animated Introduction to Friedrich Nietzsche’s Life & Thought

There’s no shame if you’ve never known how to pronounce Friedrich Nietzsche’s name correctly. Even less if you never remember how to spell it. If these happen to be the case, you may be less than familiar with his philosophy. Let Alain de Botton’s animated School of Life video briefly introduce you, and you’ll never forget how to say it: “Knee Cha.” (As for remembering the spelling, you’re on your own.) You’ll also get a short biography of the disgruntled, dyspeptic German philosophe...

Manufactured Drama

Opinion Ft Collins, CO –-(Ammoland.com)- Persistent Gun Myths: “… an eternal ‘song-‘ waves within which reason has drowned.” ~ Friedrich Nietzsche With the aid of left-leaning Hollywood dramatists, who have scant regard for the truth, an entire generation of Americans and Western Europeans have grown-up, believing preposterous myths they’ve seen depicted on the screen more times than anyone can count! Indeed, I feel sorry for young people, who for the first time behold amorous friends of the ...

Turn the Other Cheek?

“Love your enemies and turn the other cheek.”  “Judge not, lest you be judged” (Lk 6: 27-38). It sounds admirable to some, but preposterous to others.  The 19th century philosopher Friedrich Nietzsche thought such doctrine would breed a society of weaklings.  Karl Marx thought these words would help keep the oppressed under the thumbs of the capitalists. Does Jesus want us to be doormats, suckers who allow ourselves to be taken advantage of by every bully, dictator and gangster that comes down t...

Another Look: An Ordinary God

There Were Seven in Eight. Jackson Pollock Another Look: An Ordinary God From 2014 O the depth of the riches and wisdom and knowledge of God! How unsearchable are his judgments and how inscrutable his ways! ‘For who has known the mind of the Lord? Or who has been his counselor?’ ‘Or who has given a gift to him, to receive a gift in return?’ For from him and through him and to him are all things. To him be the glory for ever.

12 Ways to Keep Going with Depression

About once a week I hear the same question from a reader, “What keeps you going?” The short answer is lots of things. I use a variety of tools to persevere through my struggle with depression because what works on one day doesn’t the next. I have to break some hours into 15-minute intervals and simply put one foot in front of another, doing the thing that is right in front of me and nothing else. I write this post for the person who is experiencing debilitating symptoms of depression. The follow...

Podcast #480: Hiking With Nietzsche

Friedrich Nietzsche is one of the most polarizing and misunderstood of modern philosophers. Dismissed by some and misinterpreted by others, the real philosophy of Nietzsche in fact holds some incredibly life-affirming truths for everyone, regardless of belief or age.  My guest today has spent much of both his personal and professional life tracking down those insights. At the age of 19 and then again at age 37, he traveled to the Swiss town where Nietzsche wrote his famous work, Thus Spoke Za...

Startup Life Cycle in One Chart

Small business startups go through a typical life cycle of three stages.  I’ve observed this startup lifecycle time and again. In fact, I have gone through it myself. If we recognize the three stages, it’s the first step to getting through them successfully. Before I go further, let me say I’m not talking about the standard development stages of a high growth startup. Venture capitalists and entrepreneurship professors often talk about this.  But they are thinking about the Facebooks, Googles a...

The History of the Quirky Music Typewriter: Vintage Technologies for Printing Musical Notation

Nothing could seem more ordinary to anyone who has grown up with a musician in the house, or taken music classes themselves, than sheaves of sheet music: quarter, half, and whole notes tripping through orderly staffs in chords, arpeggios, and melodies. But the process of making those sheets of music is probably far less familiar to most of us. Music printing history, as the site Music Printing History shows, parallels book printing, but uses the technologies differently, from woodblock t...

Wild Men. Wild Women. Wild Men and Wild Women are people who listen only to the little voice in their head. They get things done. They build things. Uncertainty and turbulence--in the economy, stock markets, governments, the weather, bad odds, you name it--only get their juices flowing.

The Art of “Why”

By Chris Pearson, Manager, Partnerships | IBM Digital Business Group I’ve spent my fair share of time mentoring startups, and when we meet for the first time, I always begin by asking the founders a seemingly simple question: “Why are you doing this?” Answers to this question come in different forms, typically to the tune of “We’ve noticed a gap in ‘x’ market that we can expose,” or “We have an innovative product that can revolutionize the way ‘y’ business is done,” and of course the ever so...

A Reader’s Guide to Petersburg.

Leo Livak, one of the great scholars of Russian modernism, promised me he’d have University of Wisconsin Press send me a copy of the new book he’s edited, A Reader’s Guide to Andrei Bely’s Petersburg; it’s arrived, and it’s even better than I expected. Fortunately, Livak has posted a summary of the book’s contents, from which I will quote: The first part treats Petersburg’s rapports with Russian and European intellectual life in Bely’s day. Lynn Patyk elucidates the historical circumstances info...

The Death of God, The Descent of Man, The Death of Humanity

Is there any figure in all Western history more ironic than Friedrich Nietzsche, he who proclaimed the death of God? In mock tragic voice, his Madman even pretended to mourn it: God is dead. God remains dead. And we have killed him. How shall we comfort ourselves, the murderers of all murderers? What was holiest and mightiest of all that the world has yet owned has bled to death under our knives: who will wipe this blood off us? What water is there for us to clean ourselves? What festivals of at...

Self-Help, Nietzsche Style

"What does not kill you makes you stronger." That's nothing but a hackneyed, clichéd banality, but long ago it was something new. The source is Friedrich Nietzsche, who used this now-commonplace expression at least two times in his writings. From Twilight of the Idols (1889), in the "Maxims and Arrows" section-- From the military school of life. -- What does not kill me makes me stronger. This first quote hints at irony. Nietzsche was more expansive in the "Why I Am So Wise" chapter of Ecce ...

The Rebirth of Classic Tragedy Through Sublime Artistry of ‘Dark Souls’

In 1872, German philosopher Friedrich Nietzsche published “The Birth of Tragedy from the Spirit of Music.” Much like Aristotle’s landmark “Poetics” from the 4th Century BC, it’s a work of dramatic theory that is dedicated to identifying the prerequisites for tragedy. In 2011, Hidetaka Miyazaki released “Dark Souls.” Commonly recognized in terms of its extreme […]

The Man Digging Through the Garbage at the Train Station

      A homeless man rummaged through the garbage at the train station, he found a coffee cup that someone had thrown away he opened it to find it empty. He gently put it back in the garbage then turned around not looking at anyone he was smiling. He stood and watched the crowd seemingly entertained I assumed he was mentally challenged by his movements and actions I wondered what his life must have been to be rummaging through the garbage and not asking for money. I approached him, tapped him o...

How do people perceive proverbs today?

Proverbs are phrases that are commonly used and widely understood.  They can also be mantras that are passed down for generations. Proverbs and proverbial sayings, with their universal value and appeal, the truths they embody and the messages they carry, have for centuries been equally popular with all nations, despite their regional diversities and, clearly, for the impact they have made. Their brevity, the teaching they give, which ranges from general truths of advice, warning and comments the...

How St. Monica Navigated Difficult Family Dynamics

Dysfunctional families are as old as the Book of Genesis. Cain killed Abel; Sarah mistreated Hagar; Jacob stole Esau’s birthright; Joseph’s brothers sold him into slavery. Probably sometime in the late 330s Monica found herself in the furnace of familial affliction: she didn’t choose this situation; it chose her. In an arranged marriage, she was wedded to the much older Roman pagan, Patricius. He was bad-tempered and a serial adulterer and no doubt got his dyspeptic personality from his mother, ...

What Is Stoicism? A Short Introduction to the Ancient Philosophy That Can Help You Cope with Our Modern Times

The word “stoic” (from the Greek stoa) has come to mean a few things in popular parlance, most of them related directly to the ancient Greek, then Roman, philosophy from which the term derives. Stoic people seem unmovable. They stay cool in a crisis and “keep calm and carry on” when others lose their heads. For several, perhaps obvious, reasons, these qualities of “calm, resilience, and emotional stability” are particularly needed in a time like ours, says Alain de Botton in his School o...

God’s Gift of Joy

As Pentecost Draws Near:  God’s Gift of Joy   by Bill Carroll   Again and again, in my work as a priest, I encounter the central importance of joy in the Christian life.  Among other things, this means our joy in one another, in creation, in worship, and in loving service to others.   Joy is what the Christian life is all about.   This joy is more than a feeling.  It is consistent with difficulty and times of spiritual dryness, as well as a felt sense of God’s absence.  Joy is the fruit of deep ...

Are we to blame? Academics and the rise of populism

One of the great things about being on sabbatical is that you actually get a little time to hide away and do something that professors generally have very little opportunity to do – read books. As a result I have spent the last couple of months gorging myself on the scholarly fruits that have been piling-up on my desk for some time, in some cases years. I’ve read books on ‘slow scholarship’ (Berg and Seeber, 2016) and ‘How to be an academic super-hero’ (Hay, 2017); books on ‘radical approaches t...
