The Portable Henry James

Henry James wrote with an imperial splendor of fashion, even if his matters have been American innocents or ecu sophisticates, incandescent girls or their full of life suitors. His omniscient eye took within the surfaces of towns, the nuances of speech, gown, and demeanour, and, chiefly, the microscopic interactions, hesitancies, betrayals, and self-betrayals which are the genuine substance of relationships.

Pierre Hadot, Philosophy as a Way of Life: Spiritual Exercises from Socrates to Fou­ cault, translated by Michael Chase, 1 995, Blackwell, Oxford, 272. Julian Young con­ vincingly argues that despite Schopenhauer's argument that we ought to abandon the classical assumption that philosophy can be a guide to life, Schopenhauer's work in fact exemplifies practical philosophy insofar as it attempts to "transform life and character in ways which may be of moral relevance"; see Julian Young, Willing and Unwilling: A Study in the Philosophy of Arthur Schopenhauer, 1 9 8 7, Martinus Nijhoff Publishers, Dordrecht, 1 03-7, 1 07.

For the sake of knowledge something I had experienced and survived, some fact or fate of my life. " This is one of many un­ canny, seemingly preternatural moments in Nietzsche's writings. After his collapse Nietzsche would be literally exhibited for the sake of knowledge by the psychiatrist Otto Binswanger in his lectures at the University of J ena in the winter semester of 1 88 8 - 1 8 8 9 . One of Binswanger's students, Sascha Si mchowitz, gives a powerfully moving account of Nietzsche's exhibition in Binswanger's lecture room; see Sander L.

Nehamas's framing opens the way to understanding Nietzsche's proj ect in terms of his desire to revive the classical concern with philosophy as a means of acting upon ourselves and moulding our character. If this is correct, then we might say that for Nietzsche philosophy's essential purpose is to shape our character and cure it of the emotional turmoil that prevents us from achieving the sage's cheerful affirmation of life as it is. We can see that this is the case from the way Nietzsche extols Montaigne's engagement with Stoic, Epicurean and Sceptic philosophical therapies, whose common goal is to use reason to combat and conquer suffering.
