Philosophie als Literatur bei Nietzsche, Deleuze und Borges Augenblick, Ewigkeit und Wiederholung als existenzielle Erfahrungen der Zeit

Irene Monica Breuer


The interweavement of philosophy and literature allows to gain

a new sense from the own, lived experiences and to express them through

narrations, as the paradigmatic works of Nietzsche, Deleuze and Borges

show. They all deal with the inexorability of time and the fact of being at

the mercy of the unwanted aspects of Being-in-the-world, the detailed

reading of which allows us to assert that the event of the emergence of a

new sense lies in the experience of the creative power of the instant,

wherein the difference is introduced as the first principle through a

Copernican turn and where the eternity expresses itself. In fact, the

instant in its repetition results from a strike of chance, an assumption

which leads to a new understanding not only of time as a network of

destinies, but of eternity as extensive, intensive or ecstatic eternity. Being

involved in this experience means to undergo an existential experience of

time which produces an irrevocable change of the self.
