Extraordinary piece of film---had no idea Nietzsche had ever been captured on film.
Hideous soundtrack on that version however, with absolutely no evocative connection whatsoever with the great German philosopher.
To me that piece of film and the music that accompanies it is perfect. The singular pinnacle of Romanticism in the throes of an inevitable madness willed by an ultimately violent, chaotic and mysterious universe assuring the reasoned mind its own perfect nobility... if only Gericault had been alive to paint his portrait.
"Anyone who knows how to breathe the air of my writings will know that it is the air of high places, a strong air. You need to be made for it or you will catch a cold. The ice is near, the loneliness is terrible—but how serenely everything lies in the sunshine! How freely one can breathe! How much one feels lies beneath oneself! Philosophy, as I have understood it so far is a voluntary living in regions of ice and high mountains—the seeking out of everything strange and questionable in existence, everything which hitherto morality has forbidden."
-Friedrich Nietzsche, Ecce Homo
Sully...maybe you "missed" the part of my post where I mention "paramount influence"? Seems to include your point...
Again, not taking away from Kant's immense influence. Just asserting my opinion that his writing style is dry.
EDIT: I have only read translations since I am a stupid American, and have only a cursory recollection of Kant's relationship to the idea of the sublime in the Romantic movement. Nevertheless, reading Kant doesn't make me want to climb the way reading Nietzsche can make me want to crush.
