Citações Walter Kaufmann
„Man stands alone in the universe, responsible for his condition, likely to remain in a lowly state, but free to reach above the stars.“
— Walter Kaufmann, Existentialism from Dostoevsky to Sartre
„Let people who do not know what to do with themselves in this life, but fritter away their time reading magazines and watching television, hope for eternal life..... The life I want is a life I could not endure in eternity. It is a life of love and intensity, suffering and creation, that makes life worth while and death welcome. There is no other life I should prefer. Neither should I like not to die.“
„No other German writer of comparable stature has been a more extreme critic of German nationalism than Nietzsche.“
— Walter Kaufmann, On the Genealogy of Morals/Ecce Homo
„Whatoverlooked was the hair-raising possibility that God might out-Luther Luther. A special area in hell might be reserved for those who go to mass. Or God might punish those whose faith is prompted by prudence. Perhaps God prefers the abstinent to those who whore around with some denomination he despises. Perhaps he reserves special rewards for those who deny themselves the comfort of belief. Perhaps the intellectual ascetic will win all while those who compromised their intellectual integrity lose everything.
There are many other possibilities. There might be many gods, including one who favors people like; but the other gods might overpower or outvote him, à la. might well have applied to Pascal his cutting remark about: when he wagered on God, the great mathematician 'became an idiot.“
— Walter Kaufmann, Critique of Religion and Philosophy
