Spurious Nietzsche quote?
Nietzsche is often quoted as saying, "There are no philosophies, only philosophers", or something to that effect. But where, if anywhere, does he say that? I haven't been able to find it, and that's saying something!

Nietzsche never made this exact quote, but it can be inferred from his saying in Beyond Good & Evil;
that a philosopher's philosophy is an 'unconscious autobiography' of that philosopher.Source(s): Beyond Good and Evil section 6

Perhaps in some of the translations he is quoted to be saying that, while in others the translator saw it differently.
