Truth To Nietzsche On Freedom Of Speech

Decent Essays
Nietzsche would look at freedom of speech and talk about truth. Truth to Nietzsche is similar to metaphors, simply stating that when we speak the truth it is based upon what we deem to be considered correct by that definition. To what we think correlates to what that truth is. Relating back to the idea of freedom of speech, when we are free speaking, we speak on behalf of our beliefs. We get our beliefs from the influence of culture, and our values and norms. We have our freedom of choice to decide what we believe, “…perhaps because it facilitated that sublime self-deception whereby the majority of the dying, the weak and the oppressed of every kind could construe weakness itself as freedom, and their particular mode of existence as an accomplishment.”
