re. Nietzsche and language

 

I seem to remember that Nietzsche referred to the "prison house of
language," which would have been the inspiration for Fredric Jameson's book
title. Unfortunately I don't recall where this might be found.

 

Also, N. said, more or less, "We can't get rid of God because we still
believe in grammar." Once again, I don't remember where.

 

Anyone know proper references for these?

 

Both Maria del Mar and I would appreciate it. I am especially in need of
this information because I am working on the introduction to my splendid
book, The Communist Manifesto with all Words Functioning as Nouns Removed so
as to Make It Formally Consistent with the Theory of Dialectical
Materialism.

There are several places. Try Aphorism 354 "The Genius of the Species" from

_The Gay Science_. Also the early essay "On Truth and Lying in a Non-Moral

Sense."
