Wagner made a quick assessment of Nietzsche's abilities and noted some good qualities that he supposed would come in handy for his own purposes. " Wagner went on to maintain that he was grappling with philosophy but had little to show for his efforts. Philology, by contrast, was as important to Wagner as music to Nietzsche. The two could complement each other perfecdy. Nietzsche should remain a philologist and "conduct" him, and the philologist in turn could be guided and inspired by the musician.
From the moment he held the writings of Schopenhauer in his hands, philosophy, rather than philology, became the force that pulled him away on these paths. In October 1865, Nietzsche discovered the two volumes of The World as Will and Representation in a secondhand bookshop in Leipzig. He purchased them on the spot and perused them as soon as he got home. As he reported in one of his autobiographies, he was walking on air. He read in Schopenhauer that the world construed by reason, historical meaning, and morality is not the actual world.
It isfinallytime, he contended, to stop poking through the "coffer" of tradition; "we must stop rehashing" ( / 3,337). Philology should recognize that its stock of truly interesting objects will be exhausted, and that thetimehas come to forge something new and forward-looking from the old by means of a few "great thoughts: the best thing that can be accomplished is a deliberate poetic re-creation of minds, events, characters" (J3,336). Nietzsche had not yet reached the point where he could regard himself as a genius.
