To be sure, the hammer in this context also brings to mind the provocative Nietzschean plan "to philosophize with a hammer" (Nietzsche, 1968a: 29) at the opening of The Twilight of the Idols in order to undo the truths of conventional philosophy and transvaluate
values, and the closing monologue 'The Hammer Speaks' (Nietzsche, 1968a: 122), where hardness is extolled as the prerequisite for authentic creation, conquest, and nobility.
The first, as noted in the introduction, is Nietzsche's concept of perpetual revolution of the self--the overman (Ubermensch) who seeks to overcome humanity, to transvaluate
all values, to subject all preconceptions to constant critique.
Formation instigates development on the postulate that humans are unfinished creatures and require partiality in order to transvaluate
life's genetic one-sidedness.
To experiment with this idea further, let us recall that there are two 'active' nihilisms in Nietzsche with opposite orientations: while 'perfect nihilism', or anti-nihilism, seeks to transvaluate
existing values in order to create new ones, the second, 'radical nihilism', is basically a will to nothingness.
This is Calderon's DISCRETION, which transvaluates
the classical amor fati through the free act of will as loving acceptance of the divine providence in Christian terms.
