Editorial Reviews

Review

"Solomon and Higgins have put together a survival kit for those intending an expedition into Nietzsche territory, a refresher course for those who have been there, a map of the danger spots, and an encyclopedia of the main wonders. A valuable book."
-- Arthur C. Danto, Johnsonian Professor of Philosophy Emeritus, Columbia University


"Here is the thread of Ariadne that will lead you through the labryinth of Nietzsche's philosophy."
-- Sam Keen, author of Learning to Fly


"Like all aphoristic thinkers, Nietzsche seems often to contradict himself. Being not only a philosopher but also an artist, he is not easy to understand -- hence many misunderstandings and prejudices. This book recontructs the true Nietzsche, who often -- as a skeptic -- Nietzsche himself has deconstructed."
-- John-François Revel, coauthor of The Monk and the Philosopher

From the Inside Flap

ietzsche Really Said gives us a lucid overview -- both informative and entertaining -- of perhaps the most widely read and least understood philosopher in history.


Friedrich Nietzsche's aggressive independence, flamboyance, sarcasm, and celebration of strength have struck responsive chords in contemporary culture. More people than ever are reading and discussing his writings. But Nietzsche's ideas are often overshadowed by the myths and rumors that surround his sex life, his politics, and his sanity. In this lively and comprehensive analysis, Nietzsche scholars Robert C. Solomon and Kathleen M. Higgins get to the heart of Nietzsche's philosophy, from his ideas on "the will to power" to his attack on religion and morality and his infamous Übermensch (superman).


What Nietzsche Really Said offers both guidelines and insights for reading and understanding this controversial thinker. Written with sophistication and wit,
