Nietzsche is seized by the delirium of the Redeemer, Jung argues, and yet is unaware of the inner problems that led him to develop a doctrine which has greatly influenced the culture and politics of the twentieth century. The minute he states that 'God is dead', without realizing the profound religiosity of his statement, he is in the midst of the 'archetype of rebirth'.

This first volume of the seminar on Zarathustra, just published by Boringhieri, opens with an intense digression on Zoroastrianism and on Iranian religion, capable of inventing the fundamental distinction between good and evil which then passed to the West through the mediation of Christianity. The comparison with religion and its dogmas is continuous. Why was Nietzsche obsessed by Christianity?

I brought up Eliade as one who explored all the inner dimensions of the content of religious myths. I personally believe there is a link between the 'death' of a whole [mistaken, erroneous, petering out] energy-spring for organizing human cultural and social life that has come to the end of its road, and the 'rebirth' of new relationships to life and meaning. That is where my present theological investigations are leading me. Essentially, as I go back over everything I lived, I need hermeneutical tools to deal with the 'metaphysics' as you say of life lived and perceptions-lived.Diebert writes: "But do we really want to go into that?"
I would assume so. But to clarify my own use of the term 'rebirth' and 'ressurection': I give it essentially the most spiritual twist of all, but that also means strictly an immanent sense as the most radical inversion of the categorie spirituelle.That all sorts and forms of ideas, thoughts, events, feelings and experiences which happen at various scales of life are very much rebirths too?
