    Post Classify Nietzsche

    Please classify FW Nietzsche. I read somewhere long ago that his height was about 5'8" - tallish for the time. (He'd want to be tallish too, considering the snide metaphoric remarks he made about little people jealous of his 'long legs'and how the tall may stride over mountain ranges etc, in 'Thus Spoke Zarathustra' LOL.)

    Nordic-Dinaric, but with Nordic predominance, says Günther...

    I have always seen the Dinaric component in Nietzsche. [...]

    The Nordic element strikes me as fairly robust, possibly Fälisch?

    Could be Phalian. Günther's estimation of Nietzsche being Nordic-Dinaric is taken from the 1927 book Rasse und Stil. In 1927, I think he yet not had "discovered" the Phalian race as an own racial type in classification aspects (a year later then or so he did), so "Nordic" would here include Phalian.

    The subject of Rasse und Stil are the different "styles" of the races in psychic-mental respects. Günther also sees an Un-Nordic, Dinaric element in Nietzsche's style and works.

    Thanks guys. I see no reason to disagree with your assessment. He reminds me a lot of Rudolf Hess (the real one, not that long-faced poseur who died at Spandau!?) - who I imagine would be more typically Falish.

    [...]

    OTOH, I wouldn't be surprised if the flattened occiput causes a focus of energy in the cerebrum. (NP88 brought the latter up - http://www.forums.skadi.net/showthre...5&pagenumber=1 .)

    Maybe a certain dinaricism is oftent evident in those with a 'genius touched by madness?'

    Admittedly, though, N's dinaricism is not particularly evident in the occiput, IMO.

    Indeed, there is something of what Northstar might call the 'war-lusty Dinaric' in his writing

    Nordic-Dinaric with Nordic (general) predominance seems to be a quite good blend. Especially great parts of the Western music culture seem to be Nordic-Dinaric (cf. Richard Eichenauer, Musik und Rasse): Haydn seems to be Nordic-Dinaric, also Mozart, then Verdi and Wagner. Great creations of the Nordic soul, in their grounds with the Nordic aspiration for light and harmony, but nevertheless interspersed with Dinaric impetuosity.

    With races it's the same as with coffee.

    Liszt was also Nordic-Dinaric.

    Nordic + Dinaric = Noric.

    Has Rasse und Stil ever been translated? Or is it available anywhere on the net or reprinted, even if in the original German?

    Thanks.

    5'8" is about average height or an inch shorter for a man, 5'8" is tall for a woman, though. I think he looks Fälish, his forehead and nose especially. I don't know about Dinaric or Noric. He doesn't look very brachycephalic to me.
