Friedrich Nietzsche

Friedrich Nietzsche (c. 1864-1906)

“Today it is impossible to say for certain why people are really punished: all concepts in which an entire process is semiotically concentrated elude definition; only that which has no history is definable.”

  • From Friedrich Nietzsche’s On the Genealogy of Morals (second essay, section 13), translated by Walter Kaufmann in Basic Writings of Nietzsche (Modern Library, 1995, 2000).
