When did you realize this edgelord was the most intelligent person in the history of mankind?

>> No.9723713

His philosophy is impressive indeed.

>> No.9723719

Would he support neo-liberalism?

Non-nihilist systems are the epicycles of philosophy. They're liking seeing faces on your toast. Pessimistic nihilism is the new counterculture.

Has he contributed even one original thought?

I've started to get the sense the he might've actually been just that. But I'm not entirely sure what he specifically has said that makes him so. .... any help?

That's not an argument. Come at me with the big guns Mr. Nietzsche lover.

>> No.9723907

Nice dubs. Yes, I too would like to see him justify why Nietzsche is superior to Molyneoux. Clearly he is familiar with Molyneoux's work and if he has actually read any of Mr. Edgelords work (Nietzsche) he should be able to defend his position.

>> No.9723913


I don't even like Nietzsche. I just hate you that much.

>> No.9723914

Nietzsche is superior because he has a wider readership. He has also published more books. People have written numberless texts about Nietzsche. I would be hard pressed to find anything written about argument man that wasn't a post on this site.

>> No.9723922

Popularity = superior philosopher? What kind of pseud logic is this?

>> No.9723929

That's not what I said. He is less popular than whatsisname but he is more relevant and more influential. His work has gone on to inspire further work.

>> No.9723940

>Nietzsche is superior because he has a wider readership.

What you described was popularity.

But once again, you have failed to tell me why Nietzsche is superior to Molyneoux. Give me a worthwhile thesis. I'm beginning to suspect that you have not read anything from either of these people.

>> No.9723954

I haven't.

>> No.9723955

The value of philosophers is subjective. Someone who agrees with Molymeme might see him as superior to Nietzsche, and vice versa.

Something that is more objective is their importance in history. The other anon is right. Nietzsche was far more influential and important to the history of thought than argument man.

>> No.9723981

Historical importance is not even remotely synonymous with truth. Once again, you are parroting what the other anon said in a slightly different way.

All I want you to do is teach me something in order to help me change my mind. I seem to be at an impasse with Nietzsche fanboys who don't seem to have read his work.

>> No.9723989

The problem isn't that we haven't read Nietzsche the problem is that we haven't read the other guy. Kind of hard to compare the two based on that. If you want to argue so badly maybe give us some idea of what this guy thinks.

>> No.9723997

Holy shit.
I haven't read Nietzsche, and neither am I a fanboy. But holy shit, you'll never get anywhere in philosophy if you compare the value of philosophers by how "true" they are.

>> No.9724003

>autists who think you can formally "argue" for value judgements

just lol

Kek, if you admit that you're uneducated to this degree, then why did you even bothered arguing in the first place? Why would you let your ignorance control you?

>> No.9724055

Another one of these "Nietzsche is better just because" people.

>> No.9724105

I've read Nietzsche and some of Molyneoux. They both have depth, however Molyneoux gets inside your head in such a strange way. He's incredibly smart, however, I believe that he harness an evil spirit. When I read his works, it's like I'm letting that evil spirit corrupt my thoughts. I stopped reading Molyneoux altogether because I couldn't fucking handle him. I could feel myself changing. (And not for the better) and that made me uncomfortable. Nietzsche is similar, yet not as intense, and his ideas are not all that original. Ideally, both should be approached with caution. YMMV, anon.

>> No.9724125

>You guys aren't proving his worth based on my subjective criteria that I set out arbitrarily

>Evaluating a philosopher based on how >>>true they are
What the fuck?

>> No.9724132

Another one of those "Nietzsche is shit because people like him" people.

>> No.9724151

He didn't understand the stoics because he was to undisicplined and unloved to see himself in all people and live a life of virtue.

He is the best example of an intelligent person who was thoroughly broken on the inside.

>> No.9724172

I didn't say he was shit. Read >>9724105

What do you think his amor fati is, then?

Then I dare you to read some of his works. See for yourself how deep that rabbit hole goes.

consider amputating your brain, clearly it only sucks up nutrients and little else

>> No.9724327

What specific faults did you find in his work? And how do these supposed faults make him inferior to Nietzsche?

>> No.9725642

These pseuds haven't read either.

>> No.9725656

I don't know how you can call Nietzsche undisciplined. He managed to write some of the greatest works in philosophy whilst in extreme spiritual, mental and physical pain in near complete isolation.

>> No.9725673

Nietzsche was an amazing self-fulfilling prophet and seducer, i.e. a very great artist. 200 years from now he may even be viewed as a kind of philosophic Shakespeare.

I'll prove you wrong in a jiffy. I enjoy how people try to find meaning in nihilism but only stare into the abyss they created. At least I can laugh at nihilist and feel secure in my happiness of irony and sarcasm. THE END. FIN. BUSTED
