I really liked this until he actually classified the types of history and said that objective history is the worst type. To me, one needs objective history in order to draw his own conclusions.

Nino Brittany, I think you misunderstood his writings...he actually mentioned that it is necessary to have objective history. that's why he is known for differening so strongly with marx...marx belived in seeing history very scientifically....knowing that we are all just part of an earth that moves due to scientific creation, and that our lives should just be intended on helping each other while we are alive because there is no real meaning anyway...but nietzsche was arguing that we must take on an objective approach, otherwise the thought of having no real meaning other than factors of science will depress us all and destroy the human race as it will weaken human personality...
