Assoun reconstructs Freud's encounter with Nietzsche, his personal interpretations and the contribution of Nietzsche's champions. He also examines the thematic similarities that appear on the surface to reveal close affinities between the theorists. His argument is that these "analogies" are really the symptom of an open, ongoing dialogue between Freud and Nietzsche (and Marx) which remains vital to critical theory today
