Nietzsche, Biology and Metaphor by Dr. Gregory Moore

Book Description

Nietzsche, Biology and Metaphor explores the German philosopher's response to the intellectual debates sparked by the publication of Charles Darwin's The Origin of Species. By examining the abundance of biological metaphors in Nietzsche's writings, Gregory Moore questions his recent reputation as an eminently subversive and (post-) modern thinker, and shows how deeply Nietzsche was immersed in late nineteenth-century debates on evolution, degeneration and race. The first part of the book provides a detailed study and interpretation of Nietzsche's much disputed relationship to Darwinism. Uniquely, Moore also considers the importance of Nietzsche's evolutionary perspective for the development of his moral and aesthetic philosophy. The second part analyzes key themes of Nietzsche's cultural criticism - his attack on the Judaeo-Christian tradition, his diagnosis of the nihilistic crisis afflicting modernity and his anti-Wagnerian polemics - against the background of fin-de-siecle fears about the imminent biological collapse of Western civilization.

Books By Author Dr. Gregory Moore

Fichte - Addresses to the German Nation by Dr. Gregory Moore Fichte - Addresses to the German Nation, Hardback (January 2009)

The first English translation for almost a century of Fichte's addresses to the German nation.

Shakespeare by Dr. Gregory Moore Shakespeare, Hardback (February 2008)

Without Johann Gottfried Herder (1744-1803), we simply would not understand Shakespeare in the way we do. In fact, much literature and art besides Shakespeare would neither look the same nor be the same without the influence of Herder's "Shakespeare" (1773). This book presents a translation of "Shakespeare".

Selected Writings on Aesthetics by Dr. Gregory Moore Selected Writings on Aesthetics, Hardback (June 2006)

A seminal figure in the philosophy of history and language, Johann Gottfried Herder (1744-1803) also produced some of the most important and original works in the history of aesthetic theory. His ideas influenced Hegel, Schleiermacher, Nietzsche, Dilthey, J S Mill, and Goethe. This book presents most of Herder's important writings on aesthetics.
