Here we approach Nietzsche through the idea of reinterpretation of traditional concept of Wiederkunft as a carrier concept of the way of thinking which is characteristic for that which Nietzsche calls the history of western nihilism. According to this reinterpretation Nietzsche gains the corner stone of his mature philosophy in the notion of the eternal recurrence (ewige Wiederkunft). From that point it is also possible to understand Nietzsche’s concept of revaluation, and other carrier concepts of mature Nietzsche’s thought as well, and to perceive them in their correlation. However, the question then arises as to what is the character of this correlation and is there a ground to justify argument about a possible philosophical system in Nietzsche’s thought. The solution we offer here is an interpretation which states that, regarding to Nietzsche, we actually deal with something that could be defined as a counter-system, in accordance to the characterization of Nietzsche’s thought – through reinterpretation of Wiederkunft – as a counter-movement in respect to nihilistic tradition.
