Example text

But his achievement was not wholly understood since an aggressive, active element—of the sort we associate with the poet-scholars of the Renaissance—was not developed. Scholarship profited from the liberation, not men. (5[107]) Hence the new Renaissance culture was actually “unpopular,” Nietzsche exclaims (5[108]). Modern classicists are terribly misdirected: since they do not achieve a truly emulative appropriation, theirs is a “curriculum of desperation” not a “curriculum of competition (Renaissance, Goethe)” (5[167]).

Petrarch, Boccaccio, Erasmus operated outside of the university milieu, even though the beginnings of the humanist movement must be associated with it to some extent (Kristeller, 1961, 102). We can define Nietzsche’s place on the philological map yet more precisely.

Here, in a striking way, the humanist’s values of joy and educational orientation are combined with Nietzsche’s anti-egoism. The “donkey-work” (Kaernerarbeit) of collecting huge amounts of data is always necessary, but the donkeys must be guided!
