Towards an ethic of authenticity
Nietzsche and the phenomenism of introspection
This essay will freely draw inspiration from Nietzsche's thought (focused on Zarathustra, an artwork often set aside in ethics arguments), in order to build a definition of the perspective as a first step to ethic of authenticity, starting by enumerating what a perspective is not. How can we prove the existence of a substance which will be independent of the introspection? How can we be sure that this judgment is not a kind of illusion of our own mind? Most of the philosophers, according to Nietzsche, have been tempted by a retirement in a place that he calls a "desert," what we would probably called probably today some "realism of value." It seems to be an epistemic problem: philosophy attempts to build a system or, perhaps with more humility, tries to resolve fundamental antinomies of the existence or reality we can objectively reach by creating a closed system which can explain intellectually the reality with fundamental concepts.
