Contents
THIS BOOK CONTAINS THE SECOND GREAT WORK THAT NIETZSCHE WROTE BETWEEN 1872 AND 1875 AFTER "THE BIRTH OF TRAGEDY": NIETZSCHE OUTLINES IN IT A GENEALOGICAL METHOD OF INVESTIGATION OF TRUTH AND A PROSPECTIVIST THEORY BASED "ON THE EXPERIENCE OF THE SENSES". STARTING FROM THIS FRAGMENTARY TEXT BUT WITH A UNITARY CONCEPTION (ANALOGOUS IN ITS DESTINY TO THE "WILL TO POWER"), IT WILL BE POSSIBLE TO RECONSTRUCT THE COMPLEX "PHILOSOPHY OF LANGUAGE" THAT IDENTIFIES IN THE RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN METAPHOR AND CONCEPT THE "MYTHOLOGY" OF THE ENTIRE WESTERN THOUGHT, FORMULATING INTUITIONS OF GREAT IMPORTANCE THAT WILL BE TAKEN UP (SOMETIMES UNCONSCIOUSLY) WITH DIFFERENT MEANINGS BY MACH AND WITTGENSTEIN, BY FOUCAULT AND DERRIDA.
