Editorial Reviews

Review

'Daniel Conway, one of the leading Nietzsche scholars of his generation, has written what may be the best extended commentary on The Geneaology of Morals. Students will not be the sole beneficiaries of Conway's clearly written and insightful discussion...Highly recommended for anyone interested in what Nietzsche has to say about the origins and future of morality and the ascetic ideal.'
Professor Michael Zimmerman, University of Colorado at Boulder, USA


'This is a pedagogical tour de force — I admire the way Daniel Conway has written this introduction to Nietzsche's classic text with the needs of students uppermost in mind. It should be the first place undergraduates go to as an aid to their study of the text.'
Keith Ansell-Pearson, Professor of Philosophy, University of Warwick, UK.

5.0 out of 5 stars Worth reading November 7, 2012
Format:Paperback
In this book Conway superbly balances the demand to move through the text section by section with the requirement of keeping the overall shape and purpose of the Genealogy in view. His discussions of individual sections are often very insightful and he bears his considerable scholarship lightly. There are many points of interpretation on which we may disagree (for example, concerning the ascetic ideal) but this is a book that - particularly read alongside Nietzsche's text and in dialogue with the some of the contrasting studies by Hatab, Janaway, Leiter, Owen (apologies for self-plug) and Ridley - will repay reading for both introductory and more advanced students.
