Philosophers: Nietzsche, Heidegger, & Foucault
These three philosophers all challenge the correspondence model of truth and
knowledge
BELIEFS > TRUTH < FACTS
o Previously, it was believed that the mind mirrored reality; that what we perceive as
reality is altered by the framework in our mind
o Enter Nietzsche, who thought that we can never derive a TRUE reflection of
knowledge/understanding. Knowledge is simply guided by preconceptions.
1. Nietzsche
Knowledge manifests itself through Will to Power we fictionalize/transform
1) It’s a fabrication rather than a reflection
2) It is a fabrication of the Will to Power
-knowledge in terms of Will to Power (guides our experiences)
-knowledge of one’s own being
-manifests itself in different ways. Ex: universalization of moral principles
-judge oneself as superior to others
-individual motivations
- psychologies
WILL TO POWER: the desires of all living beings to improve its living conditions
-shapes our judgment and truths
-scientific truths useful fictions
-evolution (Darwinism) increase/enhance our existence
Beyond Good and Evil
-the role of will to power in shaping morality, religion, and politics
-Subjectivism what we see is a projection of the mind
2. Heidegger
Knowledge means correspondence between facts and ideas (*not fabrication)
1) All knowledge is contextual
2) All knowledge is interpretation; has a certain “forestructure”
-alter (guide) our understanding (*no mirroring of the world/ no model of reflection)
