Wow! Did you hear the sentence of punishment quoted for that criminal in modern language? Speechless. It sounds so nonmodern. 😳

The other day when I was on my Friedrich Nietzsche kick and did the Google search for “where does the ‘God is dead’ quote by Nietzsche come from,” I had emailed a fellow member of the academic community and asked for some of his recommendations of readings by Nietzsche. I am referring to my post on September 30, 2019, titled “Friedrich Nietzsche and his ‘God is dead’ Quote.”

My academic advisor replied that a few of his suggested reads by Nietzsche are On the Genealogy of Morals and Thus Spake Zarathustra  (the link opens in a new tab). I figured Nietzsche would be a great academic add to my collection of books, so I ordered On the Genealogy of Morals through Amazon. It has since arrived. It turned out to be a stroke of luck that the paperback edition I ordered actually contained two works: On the Genealogy of Morals and Ecce Homo  (the link opens in a new tab), which you can find through Amazon.

Philosophize This’s episode ninety, “Nietzsche pt. 1 – God is dead and so is Captain Morgan  (the link opens in a new tab), is the first in the rest of the Nietzsche section (a four-part episode section of episodes 90, 91, 92, and 93) has really struck a great chord with me while listening to the show. I did a quick Google search for “where does the ‘God is dead’ quote by Nietzsche come from” and found the textbook Nietzsche wrote the quote in. In this time between undergraduate and master’s, I am adding this book that the quote comes from to my to-read list: The Gay Science  (the link opens in a new tab).

And I envision myself at one point being able to attend frequently enough some kind of gathering where topics like this become the norm for conversations. Questioning these types of things opens me up at times to questioning what really is the pecking order of life? Spanning not only sentient beings but including that and, more broadly, spread across the spectrum of all earth’s living, existing beings/things.

Here, Stephen West interviews Massimo Pigliucci, a current-day philosopher, and practitioner of stoicism, about his views on David Hume.

In the podcast’s episode, stoicism is mentioned, which is of interest to me, personally, seeing as how I take an inventory of my motives, actions, thoughts, and reactions daily for my recovery program. Stoicism sounds similar to this and it may be how the older civilizations of humanity practiced such things, knowing the lifestyle in terms of being a ‘stoic,’ not necessarily in recovering from the disease of addiction but, also, in terms of being ‘ethically mindful’ in all areas of life (Pigliucci open.spotify.com/episode/77inMrkeA0Fx1o13QpLEGN?si=S3meCx0ATgKJbHGdnqDFGA the link opens in a new tab). This attitude and lifestyle of stoicism, though, need not only apply to those suffering from addiction. Living as a stoic, in modern times, is possible for anyone. Stephen West’s interviewee, Massimo Pigliucci, mentions a website blog he runs with thoughts on this (howtobeastoic.wordpress.com the link opens in a new tab), which Pigliucci lets us know he will also turn into a book.
