Nietzsche and the Horror of Existence

In Nietzsche and the Horror of Existence, Philip Kain deftly navigates the landscape of contemporary Nietzsche scholarship. His detailed analysis brings into alignment many of Nietzsche's seemingly self-contradictory claims. Kain reveals the profoundly subversive character of Nietzsche's thought and provides a new understanding of both the redemptive power of the affirmation of eternal recurrence and the complex relationship between master and slave morality. (Peter Heckman, Nebraska Wesleyan University)
Philip Kain's Nietzsche and the Horror of Existence is elegantly, precisely, and forcefully written with a comprehensive knowledge of Nietzsche's entire body of work. By pulling together Nietzsche's disparate thoughts on a few selected topics and systematically reconstructing them, Kain makes an important contribution to our understanding and appreciation of this nineteenth-century philosopher. The book is so well written that it can be profitably read by undergraduate and graduate students, as well as established scholars in philosophy, sociology, political theory, cultural studies, and literary criticism. (George McCarthy, Kenyon College)
