Example text

Christianity forgives, but does not forget. One could say that, with the eyes of the sinner fixed on the cross, forgiving creates a new debt in the very process of this act. It forgives what was done, but it does not forgive the act of forgiving itself. On the contrary, the latter establishes a new bond and a new debt. It is now infinite mercy (as the capacity of forgiving) that sustains the infinite debt, the debt as infinite. The debt is no longer brought about by our actions; it is brought about by the act of forgiving us these actions.

Science is acceptable insofar as it becomes a profession, that is, insofar as it is no longer considered as something that is directly competing with religion. Science must restrain itself from issuing certain types of statement. Instead of posing as an alternative to religion (or, we might add, to any kind of official ideology), it survives by renouncing (often with pride) the temptation to formulate any kind of proposition within the ideological field: this is precisely what guarantees its placid, serene autonomy.

Here is sickness, beyond any doubt, the most terrible sickness that has ever raged in man; and whoever can still bear to hear . . 23 It is true that there is also a rather different notion present in Christianity, a notion much closer to Nietzsche’s own position—namely, the notion of mercy as situated “beyond law” (Jenseits des Rechts). Nietzsche links to this notion nothing less than the possibility of an escape from the vicious circle of punishment and guilt. 24 Such a creditor can now allow himself the noblest luxury possible: letting those who harm him go unpunished.
