Friedrich Nietzsche (1844–1900) used to be an immense Western philosopher with a lot to assert approximately schooling, either without delay and not directly. A fierce critic of the universities and universities of his time, he affirms the centrality of ‘culture’ and the phenomenal person because the actual goal of schooling. For Nietzsche, the human main issue is characterized by means of the strain among wisdom and lifestyles. the duty of schooling is to reconcile those calls for, yet that calls for a thorough rethinking of data and a re-examination of morality. Nietzsche’s new belief of fact replaces evidence with interpretations, and walk in the park with daring scan. His new virtues come up out of the ‘sublimation’ of drives which are condemned through conventional morality.

It is the view held by Schopenhauer, that each of us has a moral char‐ acter that is innate and unchangeable. Kant had already said the same thing: ‘There are cases in which men, even with an education that was profitable to others, have shown from childhood such depravity, which continues to increase during their adult years, that they are held to be born villains and incapable of any improvement in character’(Kant 1956, p. 103). On this view, moral education seems either superfluous or a futile undertaking.

This leads to a key thesis: concepts are representations of sense impres‐ sions in a different medium, that of thinking. So far Nietzsche has followed theo‐ rists of perception such as Hermann von Helmholtz. However, whereas Helm‐ holtz posits unconscious processes of inference, Nietzsche compares the processing of sense data to a literary device: metaphor. As he was aware, this word in the original Greek implies a ‘carrying across’. A metaphor transfers an idea into a different vocabulary: it is like a translation from one language to another.
