The Italian Nietzsche (9)

But there are other important consequences:
- true action lies in speculation, in pure thought . . . ;
- truth must be searched for in poetry, in art; and beauty in philosophy.  . . .
And the last and most important consequence (according to me, at least):
- for actually knowing and understanding being, let us examine non-being; for understanding what is here, examine what is there; for the day, the night; for the Yes, the No; . . .

__Giovanni Papini, L'altra metà (1911), 1: The Law of Contraries
