Re: Halo 1 Story: Nietzsche and 343 Guilty Spark

In Response To: Halo 1 Story: Nietzsche and 343 Guilty Spark (Geoff Chang)

Interesting.

BUT:

It's a little like reading a horoscope. It's philosophy, and it's going to be vague. Sure, it's going to have something to say about why people act the way they do. So there are some parallels, but reading the excerpted passages brought more readily to mind the destruction of our environment and the war in Iraq. That is, it brings to mind whatever "big" problems we have cached.

I don't think this "explains" anything (though I can't deny it's a "connection"). Nietzsche was very influential, and it's possible that the connections you're making are either directly influenced by his writings or indirectly (inspired by a number of sources inspired by Nietzsche).

And what are you doing reading Nietzsche during the summer, anyways? It better be that you're working on a final exam/paper, because I can't imagine reading that for fun. Go pick up some Murakami or something and get your head out of the ideams of that depressed egomaniacal insane German (or Prussian, or whatever he was).
