Abstract

The paper explores Nietzsche’s observations on language in Human, All Too Human I, 1; reflects on the anti-realist position that Nietzsche defends in thataphorism; and focuses on the role she plays in his later investigation on Western culture and its anthropology. As will be argued, Nietzsche’s criticism towards commonsense realism is consistent with some pragmatist epistemologies developed during thelate-nineteenth and early-twentieth century. This treat of “timeliness” does not limitNietzsche’s originality on the topic. In fact, the idea that philosophy can contrast themetaphysical commitment of common sense can be seen as the theoretical tool thatallows Nietzsche to operate on the development of European culture and society
