(p.205) Chapter 9Sanctus Januarius”: The First Work of Nietzsche’s Maturity
What a Philosopher Is

Laurence Lampert

University of Chicago Press

This chapter shows why Nietzsche could end his free mind experiment successfully and move to a writing dedicated to the presentation of his mature views, Thus Spoke Zarathustra. Sanctus Januarius is a January of a Book that looks back to the old “year” that is passing and forward to the new “year” that is coming: the passing moral era of human understanding and the coming post-moral era of human celebration of its actual place in nature. The chapter shows why the series of Forewords Nietzsche wrote in 1886 had to end with “convalescence,” the recovered health that the new discoveries made possible, and why Nietzsche had to turn to autobiography.

Keywords:   autobiography, Nietzsche’s becoming, convalescence, morality
