Man as conceived by the architect and the antichrist

I have long despised Le Corbusier and especially the Corbusian man, who:

“walks in a straight line because he has a goal and knows where he is going; he has made up his mind to reach some particular place and he goes straight to it.”

Instead, I’m much more drawn to the Nietzschean man, man as understood in a search for truth, not out of reverence for human concepts like reason:

“That I must be struggle and a becoming and an end and an opposition to ends — alas, whoever guesses what is my will should also guess on what crooked paths it must proceed.”
