Style and formation in the philosophy of the young Nietzsche: the Schopenhauer case


The scope of this investigation is to find out to what extent the style (Stil), for the young Nietzsche, consists of a means through which the philosopher accomplishes the supreme task of philosophy: the formation (Bildung). I start from the statement that the stylistic problem composes one of the main elements of the evaluation that the young philosopher makes of the German formation and culture (Kultur) of his time to, finally, present how Nietzsche finds in the extemporaneous character of style and in the Schopenhauer's philosophy the way to overcome the barbarism (Barbarei).
