Who Wants Truth?

What in us really wants truth?

Who really is ready to admit what is true?

No one. We rather hide what is true. We overplay our problems.

Nietzsche argues that many of our instincts that guide conscious, apparently logical thought are unconscious.

Nietzsche is claiming that we come to the conclusion what is true, is based upon often unconscious drives and desires. And these unconscious instincts can serve our interests, and the interests of our society, class, and culture.

What are the consequences of the will to truth for our understanding of truth?

Aspects of such an understanding of truth lead to the phenomenon of “seeming true”.

Only with some sort of good skepticism, we are able to handle the problem.

WHAT YOU SHOULD LEARN

Truth is a moral problem, because it may be the case, as Nietzsche claims, that there are other things that are more important for us than determining the truth.

What accounts for the belief something “seems to be true”, is often a set of unconscious needs, desires and affects.

Truths are illusions which we have forgotten are illusions.

–Friedrich Nietzsche
