I remember Nietzsche wrote "it is OK to philosophize by just touching on subjects" instead of developing a systematic way. In which book was it? Or do I misremember the quote?

Thanks in advance, Best regards.

  • I don't know if this is one of his quotes, but it definitely describes Nietzsche's aphoristic style – b a Jun 22 '19 at 18:39
  • Those Greeks were superficial - from profundity ! /The Gay Sci. pref., 4/; This will to appearance, to simplification, to masks, to cloaks, in short, to the surface (for every surface is a cloak) is countered by the sublime tendency of the man in search of knowledge to take and to want to take things deeply /Beyond Good and evil, 230 (Our Virtues)/ ? – sand1 Jun 22 '19 at 20:19
  • @sand1 thanks for your help. But I think this is not the quote I remember :( – Furkan Semih Dündar Jun 24 '19 at 7:13
