Friedrich Nietzsche was the great philosopher of immoral ethics, and we should always remember that the title of Nietzsche’s masterpiece is “genealogy of morals,” not “of ethics”: the two are not the same. Morality is concerned with the symmetry of my relations to other humans; its zero-level rule is “do not do to me what you do not want me to do to you. Ethics, in contrast, deals with my consistency in relation to myself, my fidelity to my own desire.
Slavoj Žižek, Less Than Nothing (via windupbirdchronicle)
this is kind of a misprision of the Nietzschean project since the notion of a “self” as Zizek seems to be deploying it here is largely inconsistent with anything by Nietzsche I’ve read…but also, I could be wrong. REBLOGGING BECAUSE CHRIS
What kind of vision of the self is Nietzsche deploying then, in your mind?
I don’t think desire can ‘belong’ to me for Nietzsche; this sounds like he’s saying ethics has to do with being true to yourself or something and that’s like an Ayn Rand reading of Nietzsche.(via spookedonsemiotics)
