About Friedrich Nietzsche The displaced writer and his shadow
The philosopher, cultural critic, composer, and classical German philologist Friedrich Wilhelm Nietzsche was a great German poet whose works have had a profound impact on Western philosophy and the history of modern thought.

He was born on October 15, 1844, in the small town of Roken in Leipzig, Prussia. Nietzsche lost his father, a priest, as a child. As a result, she grew up in a feminine environment with her mother and sister Elizabeth. It is said that this was one of the reasons for Nietzsche’s later problems with women, as he had a considerable knowledge of women’s behavior and this made women afraid of Nietzsche.
Nietzsche is mentioned as one of the three thinkers who changed the history of modern thought, and many postmodern theorists describe him as a key and influential thinker in their thought. Nietzsche was one of the first critics of modernity in the nineteenth century.

Modernity was defended by many thinkers in the nineteenth century. Although Nietzsche’s thought has a modern aspect, he himself realized that modernity suffers from a series of internal contradictions, and for this reason he criticized modernity. Some have called him “modern anti-modern.”
In 1885, Nietzsche, in his famous work Thus Said Zarathustra, created a figure called Zarathustra, who spoke out against Nietzsche’s own ideas against slave-slave morality, which Nietzsche saw as the moral system used in the religions of Judaism, Christianity, and other religions. It becomes. Nietzsche says that Zarathustra was the first moralist and that he created and revealed it. And you say that it is only in his teachings that is truly the highest attribute.
The main structure of Nietzsche’s writings consists of philosophical, poetic, cultural, and storytelling debates, as well as a wide range of art, lexicography, history, religion, and science.
His writings, while full of short sentences and irony, include many other topics such as ethics, aesthetics, tragedy, epistemology, atheism and self-awareness.

The main foundations of his philosophy are sharp criticisms against the absolute truth in defense of landscapeism, the idea of ​​”Apollonius and Dionysus”, genealogical critiques of Christian religion and ethics and his theory in this regard entitled “master-slave ethics”, aesthetic affirmation of existence and existence In response to the phenomenon of the “death of God” and the deep crisis of nothingness, and the definition of the human subject as the manifestation of conflicting and in-conflict wills, collectively known as the “will of power.”

In his later works, Nietzsche introduced influential concepts such as “super-man” and “eternal return” and increasingly engaged with the creative powers of the individual as a force to overcome social, cultural and moral presuppositions and to achieve new values ​​and aesthetic health. He pondered over them.
Excerpts from the book Displaced and His Shadow

Shadows: Of course, shadows are more shy than humans; You can not understand anyone, how we talked to each other! Displaced: How did we talk to each other? God bless you for your brilliant written conversations! If Plato enjoyed less weaving, his readers would enjoy Plato more.

The conversation that actually puts a finger in our mouth, as soon as it turns into writing and is read, is a set of drawings with clearly false shadows: everything is either too long or too short. – But I might say, why did we make it together? Shadow: Because I’m happy; Because everyone only knows your beliefs in this: Shadow reminds no one! Displaced: Maybe online my friend! So far, in my opinion, more than me, they have found the shadow of MP. Shadow: Realizing shadow over light? Is it possible?
Earth fragility and its causes. – When we look around, we always come across people who have eaten eggs all their lives, regardless of the fact that the most oval things are the most delicious things!

Those who do not know that air is also necessary for the lower body, that pleasant smells in bright and cold air have the greatest effect, that our sense of taste is not the same in different parts of the mouth and talking or listening carefully when eating hurts the stomach. رساند. We will not go into these examples for the sake of observation.

We must even admit that many secondary matters have been looked upon very badly and seldom observed. And is this disregard for them? One thinks that almost all the physical and spiritual fragility of each individual is branched out from this deficiency.
