Back cover copy
The volume opens with an introduction to Nietzsche's life and thought and an essay on his art of the aphorism. This is followed by major sections on Art, Nature, and Individuation; Nietzsche's Philosophy of the Future; Philosophy of Mind; Philosophy and Genealogy; Ethics; Politics; Aesthetics; and Evolution and Life. In addition, there are fresh treatments of Nietzsche's core and enigmatic doctrines such as eternal recurrence, the will to power, and the overhuman. The volume profiles the latest research into Nietzsche's texts (published and unpublished) and reflects trends in recent scholarship, such as the renewed focus on Nietzsche's naturalism and interest in his philosophy of time, of nature, and of life.
Contributors include both rising stars and established scholars and form an international cast comprising many of the leading commentators on and interpreters of Nietzsche.
Table of contents
"This is a monster of a book, in the true Nietzschean sense. The collection represents most of the very best Nietzsche scholarship being done today in Europe and the United States." Graham Parkes, University of Hawaii
"This new addition to an excellent series assembles an inspired cast of Nietzsche scholars, representing a wide spectrum of approaches. After two helpful introductions to Nietzsche's life, philosophy, and style, the essays address the most familiar Nietzschean themes, as well as important but more neglected ones, such as his conception of science." David Cooper, University of Durham
"Historiographically and critically, this companion could not be better. It is a gateway to what is going on now critically in this feild, an introduction to the best criticism, and an exemplar of philosophical inquiry in it's own right." Stuart Hannabuss, Abeedeen Business School
"This worthwhile collection portrays many of the most preeminent Nietzschean scholars in Europe and the US . . . It offers a moving array of Nietzsche scholars who represent a plethora of approaches. Recommended."
