Abstract

Abstract:

I examine how curiosity is grounded in Nietzsche's critique of customary morality. I argue that Nietzsche's positive account of active forgetting is compatible with his treatment of curiosity as a key virtue, and that it can be shown to actively support curiosity. To support the latter claim, I suggest that Nietzschean memorial courtesy can be defined as the application of politeness about memory toward ourselves, toward others, or with regard to specific matters of inquiry.
