Abstract

The Untimely is first of all a theme, a theoretical adjective. Even before saying something about Nietzsche or about us, it tells us something about philosophy. Untimely is philosophy’s way of being.

Outside the ‘current’ logic, said Nietzsche, that makes men 'current', like current coins
