This dissertation is an attempt to make sense of the tension in Nietzsche's work between the unashamedly egocentric and the apparently mystical. While scholars have tended to downplay one or other of these aspects, it is the author's contention here that the two are not only compatible but mutually illuminating. This is supported by appeal to a conception of the One and the many articulated by Goethe and—it is claimed—adopted and further developed by Nietzsche.
