Dictionary of Arguments
Abstract Friedrich Nietzsche has long been recognized as a pivotal thinker in the history of moral philosophy, but until the last quarter century his importance for our understanding of the concepts of truth and knowledge had been largely ignored in English-language scholarship. Chapter Two asks what Nietzsche's relationship is with skepticism and to what extent can Nietzsche be labeled a skeptic. Recommended Citation Marquis, Justin R. Included in Philosophy Commons.

The interaction, as a process, brings into being what Black terms an " implication -complex", a system of associated implications shared by the linguistic community as well as an impulse of free meaning, free in that it is meaning which was unavailable prior to the metaphor's introduction. Black , p. In a different, naturalist, approach, some English-speaking philosophers close to cognitive science , such as Lakoff , have made metaphor the central aspect of human rationality.
Whereas analytic philosophy examines metaphor within the philosophy of language, continental philosophy assigns much wider significance to metaphor. This is because the climate within continental thought has been more favourable to the propagation of new branches of enquiry from nineteenth century German philosophy. Although Kant and Hegel sit quite happily on both analytic and continental curricula, it is only the latter which has seriously addressed the need to rethink how the world appears to us and how it is made manifest to us in the light of their metaphysics.
Metaphor has proven to be extremely important for this rethinking because it is the process of conceptual borrowing or reassignment which revises our perception of the world. The major shift which occurs in Kantian continental philosophy, according to Cazeaux, is the departure 'from dualistic thought, i. The turn away from dualistic thought is made by Kant on account of his representing experience as the subjective determination of an objective world, thereby placing in a relationship terms which normally stand as opposites in a dualism.
As a result of this shift, without conventional dualisms to fall back upon, the process of conceptual borrowing and cross-referral presented by metaphor becomes central as the means by which the textures and complexities of experience can be articulated.
To give two examples. According to Nietzsche , we are in metaphor or we are metaphor: our being is not derived from a Platonic , eternal essence or from a Cartesian thinking substance but in as much as there is a way of being we can call ours is emergent from tensional interactions between competing drives or perspectives Nietzsche Oxford: Oxford University Press, The account of will to power as the teleological tendency of any drive to co-opt other drives for its ends is the most compelling account in the literature, which all others must address.
