Re: Halo 1 Story: Nietzsche and 343 Guilty Spark

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

Interesting observation--keep reading Nietzsche! The man had a beautiful, incredible mind; yet many of far lesser stature simply dismiss him as an egomaniacal madman. Sad how great men are often treated after death, when their sword no longer stands to offer shaded paradise....

Nietzsche was indeed very certain of his own genius and superiority; and rightfully so. Only in the final months leading up to his mental breakdown in 1889 were his writings tinged with megalomania and lunacy.

Note of interest: the original 'Gay Science' published in 1882 actually ended with section 342. Nietzsche issued a second edition five years later, including a preface, and a fifth book--which started with section 343.
