Vorausgesetzt, daß die Wahrheit ein Weib ist—, wie?
As his setup for going Beyond Good and Evil, Nietzsche asks: “Supposing that Truth is a woman—what then?” In his own way, he then observes that, in substantial essence, philosophers are clueless, clumsy, cowardly beta-boys who do not know how to win a woman.
Thereupon, he, as an alpha-philologist, moves in on the philosophers’ turf to get the girl who has rejected them. With casual contempt, he dismisses all of the luckless wannabes who have been trying and failing to bother her; thus does he demolish three millennia of Western philosophy. Having gotten Truth alone, he takes her out on a date beyond good and evil.
This wooing of Fräulein Truth follows the course set in Nietzsche’s previous book, Thus Spake Zarathustra:
Courageous, unconcerned, scornful, coercive—so wisdom wisheth us; she is a woman, and ever loveth only a warrior.
That is one of the most famous Nietzsche quotes; but I think it is mostly misunderstood, reduced to a cheap platitude by the brain disease of liberalism. What does it mean to be “mutig, unbekümmert, spöttisch, gewalttätig”? I will speak boldly what none dares think, I don’t care what anyone says, I contemn my critics, and I will force my way—I don’t take “no” for an answer! Some of my detractors in the comments here exemplify how modern society sees this. Idly contemplating their impotent bile, I pause to wonder: Can wisdom be had any other way?
According to my esoteric interpretation of the Greeks, perhaps wisdom cannot be had at all. She is untouchable. Athena Parthenos, Athena the Virgin, is, in my opinion, very different from the Christian notion of a virgin goddess (or quasi-goddess, as the Virgin Mary).

I see Athena as that hot girl with a cold attitude, whom you never dared to approach when you were a teenager. She shoots men down in flames with an icy glance. In this case, she truly is too good for you—and for everyone else: An aristocrat of her sex, who stands apart even from her divine peers. She is the archetype of the fate that oftEither that, or the opposite extreme. I have another theory about this; but I hereby omit it, lest I be accused of sockpuppetry. befalls extremely smart women, who face the choice between loneliness and “settling”. A woman needs a man who can exceed her; for the Goddess of Wisdom, there is none, even amongst the gods.
Although Sex loves War, virgin Wisdom may only be known through War. Wherefore Athena Parthenos is also Pallas.
Wisdom personified: She is untouchable and unapproachable. Have not the hubris to presume that you may ever know her intimately. ®
