Friedrich Nietzsche on Experience - Dictionary of Arguments

Danto III 53
Experience/Nietzsche/Danto: (cf. Truth/Nietzsche (F. Nietzsche: Über Wahrheit und Lüge im außermoralischen Sinn, KGW1/III, 2, p. 374f)). We are talking about metaphors.
Metaphor/Nietzsche/Danto: Please note that here metaphors are linguistic means of expression for experiences and not for things. This makes it almost inevitable that the expression of an unconventional experience will be almost incomprehensible.
Intuition/experience/Nietzsche/Danto: Nietzsche calls experience here intuition:
(From) Intuition does not lead a regular way into the land of ghostly schemes, of abstractions: the word is not made for them, the human being falls silent when he sees them, or speaks in banned metaphors and outrageous coincided concepts, in order at least to creatively correspond to the mighty current intuition through the smashing and derision of the old conceptual barriers. (F. Nietzsche, Über Wahrheit und Lüge im außermoralischen Sinn, KGW1/III, 2, p. 382f)).
Danto III 54
Experience/NietzscheVsKant/Nietzsche/Danto: Nietzsche does not approach Kant, who took it for granted that experience should correspond to the forms imposed on them by a fixed set of terms and categories, i. e. the conditions of each comprehensible experience. According to Kant, we do not recognize things as they are per se, but as they are presented to us through the logic of experience and as they are preformed by their a priori apparatus.
Terms/Language/NietzscheVsKant/Danto: Unlike Kant, Nietzsche does not claim that a defined set of terms is inherent in the human mind, regardless of all differences between human beings.
For Nietzsche, the conceptual schemes (>conceptual scheme) vary according to society. According to Nietzsche, there are many ways of organising the experience, our experience is only one that has proven itself to us, but in which nothing is invariable, untouchable or necessary. There is nothing to prevent the (...) unconventional experiences (under a different structure) from becoming exemplary, so that the unconventional language here and now would be one day, and somewhere, a common speech.
