“Say ‘Yes!’ to the Demon: amor fati in the eternal hourglass”
Originally published in the “Agonist,” New York. The Nietzsche Circle. Vol. XI. ISSUE II. Spring 2018.
This work argues for a new perspective on the Eternal Recurrence that involves both theoretical as well as autobiographical arguments in support of the parable, first conceived in an afternoon in the Swiss Alps. While extending Nehamas’ Proustian reading of the notion, Lucas also takes issue with Heidegger as well as Deleuze in their interpretation of the of ER; specifically, the issue of Nietzsche’s Late Notebooks as well as the publication of “The Will to Power” is made a topic of contention. Ultimately, what may be called for is a reinterpretation of the canon, outright!
