Friedrich Nietzsche?s Philosophy of Life and its Contradiction in Milan Kundera?s Novel Unbearable Lightness of Being

Somana Fatima

Abstract: This paper argues about the Friedrich Nietzsches different Philosophies of life (existentialism, and the death of God) and its concept of the eternal recurrence. Whereas, Milan Kunderas Philosophy of life is that each person has only one life to live, and that whatever occurs in life occurs only once and never again. The aim and objective of this paper is to highlight the concept of eternal recurrence and its contradiction in the novel Unbearable Lightness of Being. This paper possesses the methodology of Perspectivism-which says it is just the different perspective towards life, there is nothing called good or bad, right or wrong, black and white. Perspectivism is the idea that there is no singular truth in the world. Parmenides saw the world divided into pairs of opposites light/darkness, fineness/coarseness etc. One half of the opposition he called positive (light, fineness, warmth, being), the other negative. Parmenides responded that lightness is positive, weight negative. This paper also argues between the lightness and weight of life.
