Editorial Reviews


"A wealth of philosophically insightful, intellectually provocative, and scholarly impressive accounts."--Teaching Philosophy

"Very helpful compilation of interpretations of Nietzsche--all of which are both useful in understanding Nietzsche and provocative in themselves."--Manuel Davenport, Texas A&M University

"An excellent collection of essays; very intelligently conceived. The emphasis on individual works makes it a valuable companion to Nietzsche's own writings."--Donald Rutherford, Emory University

"An invaluable aid to students who, as the editors note, 'read one book at a time.'...By treating each book separately and focusing on the strengths, weaknesses, and coherence of each individual work, this collection of accessible essays may prove more useful to first-time readers of Nietzsche than anthologies which address Nietzsche thematically or topically....This anthology is enthusiastically recommended for all undergraduate and graduate collections."--Choice

"The most distinguished commentators on Nietzsche active today....The aim has been to produce a volume that will be of assistance primarily to students in the earlier stages of their study of Nietzsche, and in this, I think, it must surely be accounted a success."--German Studies Review
