I know your heart’s hatred and envy. You are not great enough not to know hatred and envy.  I see many soldiers: I wish to see many warriors!

In order to explore this contest, I will present Nietzsche’s early texts On Truth and Lie in an Extra-Moral Sense, On the Future of Our Educational Institutions, and Homer’s Contest. These will serve as theoretical framework, enabling me to interpret other passages from Nietzsche’s work in which he engages with Socrates and Kant, criticizing their pedagogical methods and developing, in opposition to these, his own style and ethics of reading. I will end with a reading of Ecce Homo, in which Nietzsche’s thoughts on education and health converge, revealing the relationship between reading, agonistics, and health.
