Nietzsche: Critical Assessments collects together the very best scholarship available on Nietzsche's multi-dimensional thought.Nietzsche's writings are now considered seminal to a number of scholarly disciplines, including philosophy, political theory, depth psychology, jurisprudence, rhetoric, anthropology, sociology, and comparative literature. This recent explosion of scholarship is matched only by the rapid profusion of academic and popular interest in Nietzsche's philosophy.
Nietzsche's current readership is drawn from various and disparate academic backgrounds and his chequered reception means that scholars have arrived at his work from diverse critical standpoints.
The articles included in this set are written by leading Nietzsche scholars and demonstrate the serious reconsideration of his thought as a whole, in a number of academic fields and disciplines over the last thirty years.
* Volume One covers Metaphysics and Ontology
