Abstract

Both outdated and product of his times, Nietzsche warns us not to be a John-a-dreams, but to look around and see clearly how men live each day. In his judgements and polemics, Nietzsche reveals himself as an attentive observer of his reality and problems of his time. His attention permeates themes that make up the rhapsodic existence, public and private, of those who live in modern society, which are rarely considered by most people and very rarely receive attention from a philosophy that is still too farremoved and detached from the reality of everyday life. Academic philosophizing still remains hypocritically focused on great questions, neglecting the most properly human issues. Nietzsche believes he has a keen eye for transforming the familiar into a problem, a task that includes inquiring leisure time and rest.
