Editorial Reviews


"highly readable and interesting [...] refreshing in its emphasis on the historical background and character of Nietzsche's philosophy" -- Consciousness, Literature and the Arts, August 2006

"perceptive release in the International Nietzsche Studies series [...] marshals a wealth of texts to shine a bright light on a theme that is fundamental to Nietzsche's philosophical enterprise [...] Essential" -- Choice, January 2006

From the Back Cover

"This book offers an encyclopedic coverage of the historical sources of Nietzsche's views on language, thought, and history. Displaying a comprehensive knowledge of many little-known sources, particularly in rhetoric, Emden does an excellent job in detailing Nietzsche's reading on these topics, and showing how the views in these sources are related to Nietzsche's own thinking. This impressive scholarship makes the book a very useful addition to our understanding of Nietzsche." (John Richardson, New York University)

"Christian Emden has produced an intelligent and fascinating work. He paints a Nietzsche who was immersed in the intellectual world of the late nineteenth century, a world where typewriters transformed writing and scientific research on human physiology and the nervous system undermined philosophical notions of the self. This is a major contribution to Nietzsche studies." (Peter C. Caldwell, Rice University)
