Nietzsche on Us & Our Lack of Perspective...

"All philosophers share this common error: they proceed from contemporary man and think they reach their goal through an analysis of this man.

Automatically they think of 'man' as an eternal verity, as something abiding in the whirlpool, as a sure measure of things.

Everything that the philosopher says about man, however, is at bottom no more than a testimony about the man of a very limited period.

Lack of historical sense is the original error of all philosophers..."

'Human, All-Too-Human'
