Nietzsche, from what we have read thus far has had a strong critique of philosophers. Yet it seems in certain instances that Nietzsche praises the philosopher. Here are some interesting passages from Maxims and Missiles I found interesting regarding the philosopher.
"in order to live alone, a man must be either an animal or a god. The third alternative is lacking: a man must be both-a philosopher"
"to perish beneath a load that one can neither bear nor throw off? This is the case of the Philosopher"

Another concept that caught my eye was what Nietzsche had to say about reason and the four propositions he gives at the end of "reason" in philosophy. I'm kind of curious as to what others made of this section.
