But who has to concern himself with such dangerous maybes? For that one has to wait for the advent of a new species of philosophers, such as have somehow another and converse taste and propriety from those we have known so far— philosophers of the dangerous ‘maybe’ in every sense.
These new philosophers are the representatives of Dionysian power that challenges the well-established stability of knowing by positing maybes to the origin and process of “will to truth.” What differentiates the old and new philosophers, in this sense, is their purpose of pursuing knowledge—learning about the world. Such maybes signify the affirmation of life force embedded in “will to power.” Old philosophers build on an historically constructed system of knowing and imprison themselves by taking an oath to “thing-in-itself,” marching to a unified destination where they would proudly declare “truth.” Therefore, the road on which old philosophers reside becomes wider and more crowded because will itself is an attractive power. In this collective fashion, explore this truth-oriented journey is so convincing that old philosophers become too fearful to ask What is truth? and “What in us really wants ‘truth’?”
