Nietzsche, F. W. (n.d.). Beyond Good and Evil. Retrieved from

Preface: SUPPOSING that Truth is a woman what then? Is there not ground for suspecting that all philosophers, in so far as they have been dogmatists, have failed to understand women that the terrible seriousness and clumsy importunity with which they have usually paid their addresses to Truth, have been unskilled and unseemly methods for winning a woman? Certainly she has never allowed herself to be won; and at present every kind of dogma stands with sad and discouraged mien IF, indeed, it stands at all! For there are scoffers who maintain that it has fallen, that all dogma lies on the ground nay more, that it is at its last gasp. But to speak seriously, there are good grounds for hoping that all dogmatizing in philosophy, whatever solemn, whatever conclusive and decided airs it has assumed, may have been only a noble puerilism and tyronism; and probably the time is at hand when it will be once and again understood WHAT has actually sufficed for the basis of such imposing and absolute philosophical edifices as the dogmatists have hitherto reared: perhaps some popular superstition of immemorial time (such as the soul?superstition, which, in the form of subject? and ego?superstition, has not yet ceased doing mischief): perhaps some play upon words, a deception on the part of grammar, or an audacious generalization of very restricted, very personal, very human all?too?human facts. The philosophy of the dogmatists, it is to be hoped, was only a promise for thousands of years afterwards, as was astrology in still earlier times, in the service of which probably more labour, gold, acuteness, and patience have been spent than on any actual science hitherto: we owe to it, and to its ?super? terrestrial? pretensions in Asia and Egypt, the grand style of architecture.
