I'm watching an online class on YouTube about Nietzsche, and there was this phrase. In which book Nietzsche says "es denkt in mir"?


1 Answer 1


F. W. J. von Schelling, On the History of Modern Philosophy (Zur Geschichte der neueren Philosophie, probably 1833–4), English tranls., page 48 :

It thinks in me, thinking goes on in me, it is the pure fact, in the same way as I can say with equal justification : "I dreamed", and "It dreamed in me". [See German text.]

Nietzsche discusse "It thinks" into Beyond Good and Evil (1886), § 17.
