Abstract:

This thesis analyzes the relation between language and philosophy in the thought of Nietzsche. Nietzsche criticized philosophy as traditional metaphysics mainly because he thinks that it denies life. What in language is life-denying for Nietzsche? In this study, an answer to this question is attempted, and Nietzsche’s usage of language is claimed to be consistent with his criticism of the metaphysics of language.
