Nietzsche saw his own writings as "completely buried and unexhumeable in this anti-Semitic dump" of Schmeitzner—associating the publisher with a movement that should be "utterly rejected with cold contempt by every sensible mind".
Nietzsche attempts to describe the logical structure of great events, as if a critical understanding of them pertains to their recurrence in modernity: Overbeck eventually suffered dismissal and Gast finally co-operated.
Perhaps understanding this logic marks a qualitative difference in the way existence is understood. Three other general textual considerations count against attributing the strong doctrine of the will to power to Nietzsche.
