From the Paper:"Although Friedrich Nietzche the famous German Rhetorician and Philosophical Language writer was never truly involved in psychoanalysis per se, his commentaries upon the use of linguistics do become important in the definition self for our purposes. For example, his many works concerning the meaning of truth not only deeply troubled the man and contributed to his early retirement from a prestigious university position they likewise created concerns for others in many and varied professions. The profession of teaching, on whatever level and the Medical Professions both physical and mental are good examples of the applications of his philosophies."
