Another proud nonreader.

"God", "immortality of the soul", "redemption", "beyond" -- Without exception, concepts to which I have never devoted any attention, or time; not even as a child. Perhaps I have never been childlike enough for them?
I do not by any means know atheism as a result; even less as an event: It is a matter of course with me, from instinct. I am too inquisitive, too questionable, too exuberant to stand for any gross answer. God is a gross answer, an indelicacy against us thinkers - at bottom merely a gross prohibition for us: you shall not think!
I am much more interested in another question,—a question upon which the "salvation of humanity" depends to a far greater degree than it does upon any piece of theological curiosity: I refer to nutrition. "How precisely must thou feed thyself in order to attain to thy maximum of power."

Right. Nearly everything Nietzsche ever wrote was in response to a book he read, usually second hand literature. People here give him shit for misunderstanding others but it does usually boil down to others' misunderstandings with no German alternative readership at the time.

What's more important is not whether the reading is accurate but what philosophy he's personally espousing in his commentary, which seems to get overlooked here.

Philosophy is not hierarchical in the way you're suggesting. It's unique to the individual espousing it. What's hierarchical in the world is one's individual power and force. If he had access to a better understanding of the Stoics, his commentary would change without any personal embarrassment, because it's not the attack that matters for him, but the expression of the self and its strengthening.

Power there means something akin to energy, as in what configuration of energy you are. Force means the application of that energy on the world.

He read Plato, but he also read second hand literature, as well as other philosophers. A lot of his criticisms are adapted from Schopenhauer's and other philosophers.

You're both overlooking something vital in Nietzsche's philosophy, which is that will to power is not merely conscious ego-driven action. It covers all of life. Nietzsche's style of espousing his philosophy through commentary and disjointed aphorisms is intricately woven into the philosophy itself. There are "contradictions" throughout his work and he rejected systematization because a logical / mathematical consistency would fail to convey his ideas, including that life has its own consistency for us regardless of our immediate interests, that that consistency is forever inconsistent with our individual animal logic, and that this consistency is constantly involved in the structuring of our individual reality. Without these ideas, he wouldn't readily commit "contradictions" to paper, even to the dismay of his personal relationships.

To be fair, you have to have a very high will to power to understand Nietzsche. The knowledge of a hammer is extremely subtle, and without a solid grasp of greek psychology most of his insights will go over a typical rearder's head. There’s also nietzsche's nihilistic outlook, which is deftly woven into his characterisation - his personal philosophy draws heavily from Kant's pessimism, for instance. The fans understand this stuff; they have the intellectual capacity to truly appreciate the depths of these jokes, to realise that they’re not just funny- they say something deep about LIFE. As a consequence people who dislike Nietzsche truly ARE idiots - of course they wouldn’t appreciate, for instance, the magnificence of Nietzsche's existential catchphrase “it is only as an aesthetic phenomenon that existence and the world are eternally justified” which itself is a cryptic reference to Kant's aesthetic weakness. I’m smirking right now just imagining one of those addlepated simpletons scratching their heads in confusion as Ubermensch’s genius wit unfolds itself before their very own eyes.

If by understood you mean project one’s own modern and romantic notions onto them and entirely anachronistically recast the main theme of ancient Hellas as a dualism between the philosophies of Kant and Schopenhauer then yes, he did.

>The famous Lobeck in particular crawled into this world of mysterious states with all the venerable certainty of a worm that has dried up between books, and persuaded himself that it was scientific to be glib and childish to the point of nausea, - Lobeck spared no expense of scholarship in establishing that these curiosities really did not amount to anything. In fact, a few of the insights that the priests shared with the orgy participants might not have been entirely worthless, like the fact that wine stimulates desires, or that people can sometimes live on fruit, or that plants bloom in the spring and wilt in the fall. And the disconcerting wealth of rites, symbols, and myths of orgiastic origin that ran riot in the ancient world - all of this inspires Lobeck to new levels of brilliance. 'When the Greeks did not have anything else to do', he says (Ablaophamus I, 672), 'they laughed, jumped, and lounged about; and sometimes they sat down, cried, and complained, since occasionally people like doing this too. Other people then came along and looked for some sort of reason for this unusual behavior; and so countless legends and myths arose to explain these customs. At the same time, people thought that the funny doings that happened to take place on the festival day were necessary parts of the celebration, and kept them on as a vital part of the religious service.' - This is detestable drivel; a Lobeck cannot be taken seriously for an instant. We get a very different impression when we examine the idea of 'Greece' developed by Winckelmann and Goethe and find that it is incompatible with the element at the root of Dionysian art - the orgiastic rite. As a matter of fact, I have no doubt that Goethe would have totally excluded anything of this kind from the possibilities of the Greek soul. THAT IS WHAT GOETHE DID NOT UNDERSTAND THE GREEKS. The fundamental fact of the Hellenic instinct - its 'will to life' - expresses itself only in the Dionysian mysteries, in the psychology of the Dionysian state. What did the Hellenes guarantee for themselves with these mysteries? Eternal life, the eternal return of life; the future promised by the past and the past consecrated to the future; the triumphal yes to life over and above all death and change; the true life as the overall continuation of life through procreation, through the mysteries of sexuality. That is why the sexual symbol was inherently venerable for the Greeks, the truly profound element in the whole of ancient piety. All the details about the acts of procreation, pregnancy, and birth inspired the highest and most solemn feelings. In the doctrines of the mysteries, pain is pronounced holy: the 'woes of a woman in labor' sanctify pain in general, - all becoming and growth, everything that guarantees the future involves pain... There has to be an eternal 'agony of the woman in labor' so that there can be an eternal joy of creation, so that the will to life can eternally affirm itself.

>The word 'Dionysus' means all of this: I do not know any higher symbolism than this Greek symbolism of the Dionysian. It gives religious expression to the most profound instinct of life, directed towards the future of life, the eternity of life, - the pathway to life, procreation as the holy path... It was Christianity with its fundamental ressentiment against life that first made sexuality into something unclean, it threw filth on the origin, the presupposition of our life....
