By Stephen Houlgate
This learn of Hegel and Nietzsche evaluates and compares their paintings via their universal feedback of the metaphysics for working with conceptual oppositions reminiscent of being/becoming and egoism/altruism. Dr Houlgate exposes Nietzsche's critique as applying the excellence of lifestyles and inspiration, which itself constitutes a metaphysical dualism of the sort Nietzsche assaults. by means of comparability Hegel is proven to supply a extra profound critique of metaphysical dualism by way of employing his philosophy of the dialectic, which sees such alleged opposites as defining parts of a dynamic. In deciding on to review a subject matter so basic to either philosophers' paintings, Houlgate has verified a framework in which to judge the Hegel-Nietzsche debate; to make the 1st complete research of Nietzsche's view of Hegel's paintings; and to check Nietzsche's Dionysic philosophy with Hegel's dialectical philosophy through concentrating on tragedy, a topic important to the philosophy of either.
