"Original in presenting in English a balanced account of what Nietzsche's fairly steady view really was on such matters as the nature of truth and knowledge, theism, the will to power, morality, and in a valuable final chapter, on art."
From the reviews of the cloth edition:
-"Times Higher Education Supplement
"Schacht does an honest and thorough job of sorting out Nietzsche's thought and offering it for our inspection."
-Richard Rorty, "Times Literary Supplement
"This work represents a painstaking and serious attempt to understand Nietzsche which remains in close contact with the texts . . . This is certainly a volume that students of Nietzsche's thought and its practical ramifications must confront and be aware of."
-Gregory B. Smith, "American Political Science Review

One book jacket quotation from a review claims that although some people may be put off by a less "high-flying" Nietsche interpretation, Schacht's Nietzsche, avoids leaving all the personal residue that those interpretations tend to mask Nietzsche in (i.e. Heidegger's, Deleuze's, Derrida's, Klossowski's, Jasper's, Bataille's, et al). My objection is simply that Schacht's Nietzsche, despite being more boring than the ones mentioned, is no closer to whatever "actual Nietzsche" we might imagine. To abstract the common theses of Nietzsche's writings, and amalgamate them into the context of some organized metaphysical system doesn't bring any us closer to an accurate Nietzsche reading than piecemealing Nietzsche ideas and incorporating them into a new philosophical stance. Both involve a recontextualization. The only difference between the two lies in that Schacht brings Nietzsche into a context in which he is more familiar to us, that of traditional systematic philosophical argumentation, and thus loses a great deal of Nietzsche that was singular to the history of philosophy.
