Then Nietzsche says, "Innocence is the child, and forgetfulness, a new beginning, a game, a self rolling wheel, a first movement, a holy Yea." Sartre writes about Nietzsche several times (Being and Nothingness, his Notebooks for an Ethics, Saint Genet, etc. According to Sartre, love exists only in its actions. 103 0 obj They try to control each other and demand the sort of possession that the padlock implies. 0000005689 00000 n As Nietzsche postulated, lovers all too often act like “the dragon guarding his golden hoard” and treat a beloved like an exotic bird—“as something also which must be cooped up to prevent it flying away.” Chains can be comforting, like lovers’ arms, but Nietzsche was an advocate for freeing ourselves from these petty shackles of romantic mythology, particularly the ideal of securing love. 103.94.16.129, https://doi.org/10.1007/978-3-030-43108-2, The Editor(s) (if applicable) and The Author(s), under exclusive license to Springer Nature Switzerland AG 2020, Introduction: Existentialism and Humanism, Nietzsche’s Non-humanist Existentialism: Perversity and Genealogy, Nietzsche’s Non-humanist Existentialism: Secondary Perversion and the Slave Revolt.

Possessiveness is so fundamental to the experience of love, Sartre thought, that to overcome the desire to possess a lover might be to overcome love itself. So if buying a brass lock and leaving it, along with thousands of others, to weigh down a monument is for you a special, beautiful, and meaningful act of love, Sartre probably wouldn’t have stopped you. 0000018149 00000 n Love, he thought, can be “the most angelic instinct” and “the greatest stimulus of life.” But too frequently, love manifests as a greedy and decadent desire for possession. 0000002288 00000 n 0000001439 00000 n endobj <>/Border[0 0 0]/Rect[243.264 230.364 447.588 242.376]/Subtype/Link/Type/Annot>>
