Reviews of selected highlights: Karl Jaspers: Nietzsche "Of the countless essays on the work of Friedrich Nietzsche, the complete overview by Karl Jaspers continues to stand out as a unique achievement. Nietzsche is presented as a `great philosopher' in historical and systematically comprehensive terms. The expert opinion formulated by Jaspers, a psychiatrist, on Nietzsche's illness, which was based on all available medical data, remains of undiminished importance."Prof. Dr. Volker Gerhardt Werner Jaeger, Die geistige Gegenwart der Antike [The Spiritual Presence of Antiquity] "The new interest in Antiquity, which is currently being spurred on by arts, science of art, philology and philosophy, may receive additional momentum from this superior work by a significant scholar of Classical Greek Studies, who strived to re-establish humanism. It also enables the reader to view the present from a historical distance." Prof. Dr. Volker Gerhardt Nicolai Hartmann, Teleologisches Denken [Teleological Thinking]"Nicolai Hartmann has been unjustly forgotten. We require an extensive and systematic re-engagement with his significant concept of a realistic world system. In terms of the life sciences turn, Hartmann's superior presentation of teleology provides a solid starting-point." Prof. Dr. Volker Gerhardt Volker Gerhardt is Professor of Practical Philosophy and Legal and Social Philosophy at the Department of Philosophy of Humboldt University Berlin. He is chairman of the scientific commission of the Union of German Academies of Sciences and Humanities and member of the German Ethics Council.
