The concept of self in the context of the "despisers of the body" alluded in nietzsche's thus spoke zarathustra

Yazıcı, Irmak
This thesis analyses the concept of self with respect to Nietzsche’s (1844- 1900) implications on the “despisers of the body” in Thus Spoke Zarathustra. Nietzsche’s exposition of the self as a varying multiplicity neither within nor out of the body is the basic assumption of this dissertation. In this sense, the place of Nietzschean self considering the evolution of the concept of self through history will be analyzed. The concept of ego (subject) will be discussed as Nietzsche’s critique of the so-called manifestation of self; the concept of body will be discussed as the embodiment of Nietzschean understanding of the self.
