Description - Nietzsche, Politics and Modernity by David Owen

This introduction to Nietzsche's thought seeks to demonstrate his significance as a philosopher and political theorist, highlighting his critique of liberalism in both its philosophical and political forms. In its description of Nietzsche's diagnosis of the modern condition, this study covers the central aspects of his thought including the will to power, the overman, the theory of eternal recurrence and self-overcoming. In addition, the relevance of Nietzchean philosophy to a range of current debates is addressed, and the liberalism of Rorty and Rawls is seen as the contemporary expression of Nietzsche's gloomy vision of the last man.
