The Italian Nietzsche (14)

Philosophers are right [in creating a reassuring world]. I don't simply want to blame them, but to integrate them: to make people sense that there is a different world, negative and bad, that might perhaps make us understand something about the other one, the good, enlightened world. What philosophers didn't do so far, that's what I mean to. What Nietzsche did only with reference to Evil, I want to do with reference to all brethren of Evil.

__Giovanni Papini, L'altra metà (1911), 2: The Other Half.
