Kwan Tze-wan:Nietzsche and the Tragic Age: Theodicy? Cosmodicy? Or Anthropodicy?

March 7, 2:30pm - 4:30pm
Mānoa Campus, Sakamaki Hall C-308

Nietzsche is well-known to be highly critical of Christianity. While mainstream interpretation tends to trace this back to the alleged moral decay of the latter, or to the Nietzschean concepts of "slave morality" and "resentment", this paper argues that it is the problem of theodicy that truly underlies Nietzsche's criticism. Relevant views from ancient Chinese philosophical texts will be cited for comparison to bring home the point of Nietzsche's criticism against Christian theodicy and the subsequent development of his thoughts into a form of cosmodicy or anthropodicy.
