It almost doesn’t matter today what he philosophized about. The “Dionysian” and the “Übermensch,” the blonde beast, the eternal return—where have they gone? But he himself, who, in the metamorphoses of his figures of thought, himself metamorphosed, he himself whose soul did not fear any height, but who followed in his climbing that madly daring mind of mountain climbers, up to the sheer peak of madness where there was nothing beyond, it is he whom none who must philosophize can henceforth bypass.
To formulate it very crudely, this non-identity of being and thinking must appear in being and thinking themselves, and not be smoothed away by a third part, the will, which is neither thinking nor being, and which comes into view like a deus ex machina. And since the foundation of the unity between being and thinking is sought in thinking, then one would also have to begin by discovering the foundation of the non-identity in thinking. The reflection where this happens goes something like this: granted that thinking is the one and universal form of being, then thinking has itself a content, a so-and-not-otherwise, which is, in order that one might purely think it, not any less so-and-not-otherwise.

Once again, it is only after the point of completion that this movement of thinking attains an opposite tendency, owing to German idealism, which emerged with Schopenhauer and in the late philosophy of Schelling. The “will,” “freedom,” the “unconscious” were in a position to do what reason could not do: rule over a world of chance.
