'...a major achievement to have so successfully and originally marked out the arena in which Nietzsche's moral and political thought took shape...effectively modulating fine-grained exegesis with critical commentary...written with power, passion and persuasiveness.' The Times Higher Education Supplement
'In order to secure a point of entry into this forbidding dimension of Nietzsche's thought, Ansell-Pearson deploys a novel - and highly successful - interpretive strategy...an ambitious study of Nietzsche's moral and political thought and a formidable accomplishment.' Review of Metaphysics
Nietzsche is widely regarded as a significant moral philosopher, but his political thinking has often been dismissed as either impossibly individualistic or dangerously totalitarian. Nietzsche contra Rousseau takes a serious look at Nietzsche as political thinker and relates his political ideas to the dominant traditions of modern political thought.
