Nietzsche and Modern German Thought

Routledge (1991)
This collection of specially-commissioned essays reflects the emergence of a serious interest in Nietzsche scholarship among philosophers, sociologists, and political theorists. By considering Nietzsche's ideas in the context of the modern philosophical tradition from which it emerged, his importance in contemporary thought is refined and reaffirmed. The essays in Nietzsche and Modern German Thought critically consider Nietzsche's relation to Kant, Schopenhauer, Hegel, Marx, and Heidegger, as well as to major movements including neo-Kantianism and hermeneutics. The contributors seek to demonstrate that the radical and original nature of Nietzsche's style of thinking can only be properly appreciated when situated in the modern philosophical tradition from which it emerged and which it engages. The whole question of tradition is raised in assessing Nietzsche's achievement, providing valuable insights into neglected and relatively unknown aspects of his thought. The importance of Nietzsche's work in relation to questions of modernity and post-modernity is undeniable. Nietzsche and Modern German Thought is a major contribution to the current reevaluation of Nietzschean philosophy.
