Abstract

This essay explores Lou Salomé’s intellectual friendships with Nietzsche and Freud, with particular respect to the psychological implications of Nietzsche’s doctrine of Eternal Recurrence and Freud’s quite different acceptance of transience. The essay conjectures that it is Salomé who serves as a significant mediation between the later phase of Nietzsche’s philosophy and Freud’s development of a metapsychology reliant on the hypothesis of a death drive.
