Aristotelian Elements in Nietzsche's Work Related to the Philosophy of Education
Triantari, Sotiria A.
Online Submission, US-China Education Review B 6 p824-828 2011
In the author's opinion Nietzsche has adopted the three Aristotelian factors, i.e., logic, learning and experience, showing the nihilistic element in the educational system of his days. By means of the term "formal education", Nietzsche implies the education comprises the development of the intellectual faculties of the learner. According to Nietzsche, logic is connected with learning, and this is connected with habituation through which the students internalize patterns of behaviour. Nietzsche connects learning and habituation with experience. The person acquires experience from everyday life and through the senses from the external world. Nietzsche adopts the Aristotelian concept of activation of the intellectual faculties of students as the main purpose of the educational process. This activation presupposes the sound guidance and activation of learners' experience. Based on the three Aristotelian factors, according to Nietzsche, the teacher is called to shape and activate all these elements, which are inherent in the genius.
