In e-flux Catherine Malabou asks the questions.
“Redemption,” Heidegger writes, “releases the ill will from its ‘no’ and frees it for a ‘yes.’” To renounce revenge, that which leads to the Overman, implies what Nietzsche calls “active forgetting” (“aktive Vergessenheit”). Yet is it possible for the human to actively forget what it is? Will we ever be liberated, freed from revenge, and thus from our humanity? Will we ever be able to invent a new relationship to time, to law, to justice?
The quote is from "Who Is Nietzsche's Zarathustra?", in Nietzsche II, The Eternal Recurrence of the Same, p. 226.
