Re: Fridriech [sic] Nietzsche, quotemined
Nietzsche is quoted too often by people that can't be bothered to learn anything about his philosophy.
Nietzsche's criticism in this excerpt is of a brand of nineteenth-century positivism that claimed support in Darwinian theory. He uses the same theory to expose the naivete of it.
Nietzsche was not a creo. Sorry. And the spelling of his first name is Friedrich, not 'Fridriech.'
Now--back to the twenty-first century.
