Description - Nietzsche by John Richardson

This volume, the latest in the Oxford Readings in Philosophy series, brings together some of the best and most influential recent philosophical scholarship on Nietzsche. Opening with a substantial introduction by John Richardson that sets the pieces in their scholarly context, the selected papers cover these main topics: Nietzsche's views on truth and knowledge, his 'doctrines' of the eternal recurrence and will to power, his distinction between Apollinian and Dionysian art, his critique of morality, his conceptions of agency and self-creation, and his genealogical method. For each of these issues, the papers show Nietzsche's continuing philosophical importance. In addition, most of the topics are treated by two or more papers, arguing for contrasting readings of his position, providing both a synoptic view of his main ideas and an argued examination of each. Giving a clear and accessible overview of the main topics in Nietzsche, while retaining an analytical philosophical approach throughout, this volume is essential reading for all students of Nietzsche.
