43rd Nietzsche Colloquium: "Why I am so clever" Nietzsche's Ecce homo

Sils i.E.
The colloquium is open to the public and anyone interested is welcome to attend.

Ecce homo. Wie man wird was man ist (written between 1888 and 1889, first published in 1908) is undoubtedly one of the most astonishing texts of the late Nietzsche. How are we to understand the exaggerated chapter titles of his work? Nietzsche's provocatively formulated review of his own texts and philosophical positions and their often lacking public perception gives much food for thought: what rhetorical and philosophical strategy does Nietzsche adopt when he places an allusion to the Roman governor Pontius Pilate in the title and to Pindar in the subtitle, and when he then continues with the title: "Why I am so clever", "Why I write such good books", and finally, "Why I am destiny"? - Precisely because the text has often and all too quickly been understood as a directly autobiographical statement and as an expression of hubris or even madness, Ecce homo calls for careful scrutiny: what forms of self-reference and self-commentary does Nietzsche choose here, and why? To what extent can this text be understood as autobiographical or autofictional? What crises does the philosopher recognise, what convictions does he articulate? What remains of Nietzsche's philosophy from his point of view?
