By Robert R. Williams
Hegel and Nietzsche are of an important figures in philosophy and faith. Robert R. Williams demanding situations the view that they're together particular. He identifies 4 components of convergence. First, Hegel and Nietzsche show and outline sleek curiosity in tragedy as a philosophical subject. each one seeks to right the conventional philosophical and theological suppression of a sad view of lifestyles. This suppression of the tragic is needed via the ethical imaginative and prescient of the realm, either within the culture and in Kant's useful philosophy and its postulates. For either Hegel and Nietzsche, the ethical imaginative and prescient of the realm is a projection of spurious, life-negating values that Nietzsche calls the ascetic perfect, and that Hegel identifies because the spurious countless. the ethical God is the enforcer of morality. moment, whereas acknowledging a sad size of life, Hegel and Nietzsche however confirm that life is sweet regardless of affliction. either verify a imaginative and prescient of human freedom as open to otherness and requiring attractiveness and neighborhood. fight and contestation have affirmative importance for either. 3rd, whereas the ethical God is useless, this doesn't placed an finish to the God-question. Theology needs to comprise the loss of life of God as its personal subject matter. The union of God and dying expressing divine love is for Hegel the elemental speculative instinct. this means a dipolar, panentheistic notion of a sad, agony God, who hazards, loves, and reconciles. Fourth, Williams argues that either Hegel and Nietzsche pursue theodicy, now not as a justification of the ethical God, yet particularly as a query of the meaningfulness and goodness of life regardless of nihilism and regardless of tragic clash and ache. The inseparability of divine love and soreness signifies that reconciliation is not any conflict-free concord, yet encompasses a paradoxical tragic dissonance: reconciliation is a disquieted bliss in catastrophe.
