Scholarly Article Analysis

724 words - 3 pages

The article I chose for my scholarly article analysis was more than straight forward as it is called “Friedrich Nietzsche.” The author is Paul Carus, a German-American author who lived between the late 19th/early 20th century. As for how I decided on this particular article, I knew I wanted to find an essay that was as close to a good academic article on Friedrich Nietzsche. Not possessing an advanced degree in philosophy, I assumed that the article database of JSTOR (known for its broad “humanities” slant) would, most likely, be a good place to begin.

He notes that his style is pointed; he appeals to sentiment, passion, ambition, and vanity- all of which is human too human, not intellect; his ideas are easily understood; his ideas are not presented in a logical, orderly way; and that he appeals to the pride of sovereignty, of irresponsibility, and of absolute independence (230). Having provided his reader with a couple of reasons for why Nietzsche is fascinated by the masses, Carus proceeds to state the main objective of his essay, which is to clarify and unpack our...
