An update on the master's story of life: the relationship between history and life in Nietzsche and Rüsen

This project aims to analyze how the relationship between history and life is articulated in the thinking of Friederich Nietzsche and Jörn Rüsen. What are the similarities and differences in this relationship? Moreover, we are interested in deepening the following question: how can this search for the revitalization of history and life in Nietzsche and Rüsen contribute to think of the Didactics of History as the area of ​​historical thought that investigates historical learning? In order to do so, this project intends to analyze the historical context and the works produced by Nietzsche, seeking his criticism of the Science of History from the relation that it develops with life. In the same way, he intends to understand the historical context and the works of Jörn Rüsen, analyzing his conception of rooting of scientific knowledge to the needs of existential orientation of men in the practical life. Finally, it intends to compare these two conceptions and to analyze the contributions that they can provide for a Didactics of History, understood as the discipline that analyzes the temporal orientation functions of History for the acting and suffering of men.
