I was reading Microsoft Encarta and in a part of it, Nietzsche’s ideology was put forward as:
"For Nietzsche the power to be strong was the greatest value in life"
Isn't "the power to be strong" ridiculous? I mean, "the desire to be strong" makes sense to me. Also "the power was the greatest value in life" is reasonable, but "the power to be strong" seems a kind of tautology to me. Power is something like being strong.
Is this sentence semantically correct?
