Abstract and Keywords

This essay presents Spinoza and Nietzsche as philosophical “enemy brothers” who share a radical philosophy of immanence and the negation of all transcendence. For both, the immanent world, which is devoid of an inner or outer purpose, constitutes the overall horizon of being and the sole possible source of value, and both, in their different ways (either as amor fati or as amor dei), call for a celebrating affirmation of it. Yet, as the paper spells out, within their deep affinity each philosopher maintains a totally different view of immanence and of the existential experience linked to it.

Keywords: Spinoza, Nietzsche, enemy brothers, immanence, transcendence, amor fati, amor dei
