I'm wondering how radical it would be if I attempted to prove that Nietzsche's idea of faith is hypocritical of his disbelief of opposite values in good vs. evil. He seems to constantly believe that faith and reason is good vs evil. Is there anything in the text of good vs. evil to help me prove my point that can be further explained because the only time he really brings faith up is to bash it with his anti christian world-view. When he says "...it is much rather the faith of pascal, which resembles in a terrible manner a continious suicide of reason" Is he speaking of christian faith or faith in general?
Also, he says "there is an innocence in lying which is the sign of good faith in a cause".. What exactly does he mean by this.
I think I have decided against arguing Nietzsche.. Any idea's of possible arguments against the idea's presented in "The Symposium," Heidegger's "Basic Writings," Kant's "Grounding for the Metaphysics of Morals," or Descartes Discourse on Method and Meditations on First philosophy? I would greatly appreciate any idea's..
