Ah, influence. Interestingly (from what I've read today) Carl Jung in his lectures said that while "Nietzsche chose a most dignified and worthy model for his wise old man,” he also took him for "the founder of the Christian dogma" that he (Nietzsche) so vehemently opposed.I'm sure Nietzsche choose him because 1. He predates and influences Abrahamic thought,
As in more at one with natural law?2. Had a message of God that is more Dharmic that separate,
Are these your own personal thoughts or does Nietzsche allude to this prophet or religion in other works? I've only read of his Beyond Good and Evil and TSZ so I'm not overly familiar with both tbh (as in author and religion).3. Was somewhat inspired by him.
