Sample text

The will to power, then, is the genealogical element of force that establishes differential relations of quantities of force, from which issue the qualities of each force, whether active or reactive. The will to power is a kind of inner centre of force, a power of becoming active or reactive, whose quality is either affirmative or negative, and it is manifested as the affectivity of force, the power of being affected. In short, the will to power is that concept which makes possible a theory of nature as relations of forces – dynamic (becoming-active or -reactive), determined in quality (the genealogical element of force), and entailing the mutual effect of each force on the other (the affectivity of force).

Thus, the will to power involves a feeling of power, and all affectivity, sensation and emotion derive from it. The will to power, then, is the genealogical element of force that establishes differential relations of quantities of force, from which issue the qualities of each force, whether active or reactive. The will to power is a kind of inner centre of force, a power of becoming active or reactive, whose quality is either affirmative or negative, and it is manifested as the affectivity of force, the power of being affected.

Everywhere reason sees a doer and doing; it believes in will as the cause; it believes in the ego, in the ego as being, in the ego as substance, and it projects this faith in the egosubstance upon all things – only thereby does it first create the concept of ‘thing’. 14 Plato, of course, makes the unchanging and selfsame realm of being the object of true knowledge, and opposes it to our phenomenal world of flux, change, and becoming. Nietzsche regards this devotion to being as a veiled hatred of life, a means of finding our world guilty and deficient, and he proposes as the fundamental task of philosophy the reversal of Platonism through an affirmation of becoming.
