Part of Nietzsche’s problem with history, science, and the knowledge drive in general is that these activities typically presuppose that "knowing" is possible, and that truth is more valuable than untruth, or appearancePart of Nietzsche’s problem with history, science, and the knowledge drive in general is that these activities typically presuppose that "knowing" is possible, and that truth is more valuable than untruth, or appearance. It is supposed that there is another world, one free from our perceptions, which can be known if we can find an objectifying lens through which the real nature of things, i.e. inherent properties, things-in-themselves, essences, can be understood. Nietzsche sees most endeavors concerned with discovering the truth as attempts to separate the knower from the known in such a way that they can separate their perceptions (the way the world seems) from the perceived object (an entity that has an existence free from what we bring to the word.)
Why I'm Childfree By Choice & How to Talk to a Childfree Person | Godless Girl Photo by Mohammad R. Riza (flickr) There are many people who believe that being childfree (or better yet, “childless by choice”) is a negative trait, especially for a woman.

Others who have children know what it’s like to feel that intense love bond between family members and they enjoy raising up the next generation.
