In one direction the thought is necessary, in another direction it is dangerous


In one direction the thought is necessary, in another direction it is dangerous.

In the necessary direction it has to function as instrumental reason on material and technical problems; that is to say: objective and effective.

The dangerous direction is when it instrumentally is seeking to work on human problems and values; that is to say: when it becomes characterized by desires, the desire after material necessaries, or after the highest spiritual goal; that is: the will to power which is seeking to control, to become, to remodel, to acquire in philosophical sense; that is to say: in order to find meaning.
