    Peter R. Sedgwick (2016). Hyperbolic Naturalism: Nietzsche, Ethics, and Sovereign Power. Journal of Nietzsche Studies 47 (1):141-166.
    Is Nietzsche’s naturalism best understood as exemplifying the principles of scientific method and the spirit of Enlightenment? If not, then what are we to make of its implications? In what follows I seek to address these questions from a perspective inspired by Eugen Fink’s contention that Nietzsche’s endorsements of “naturalism” should be taken as hyperbole. With Fink’s point in mind, I engage initially with Enlightenment-orientated readings offered by Walter Kaufmann, Maudemarie Clark, and Brian Leiter. Such readings hold Nietzsche’s naturalism to (...)

    Peter R. Sedgwick (2013). Nietzsche's Justice: Naturalism in Search of an Ethics. Mcgill-Queen's University Press.
    In Nietzsche's Justice, Peter Sedgwick takes the theme of justice to the very heart of the great thinker's philosophy. He argues that Nietzsche's treatment of justice springs from an engagement with the themes charted in his first book, The Birth of Tragedy, which invokes the notion of an absolute justice grasped by way of artistic metaphysics. Nietzsche's encounter with Greek tragedy spurs the development of an oracular conception of justice capable of transcending rigid social convention. Sedgwick argues that although Nietzsche's (...)

    This critical survey of issues in European philosophy offers detailed accounts of crucial texts by important thinkers.

    Peter R. Sedgwick (2013). Nietzsche, Illness and the Body's Quest for Narrative. Health Care Analysis 21 (4):306-322.
    This paper explores Nietzsche’s approach to the question of illness. It develops an account of Nietzsche’s ideas in the wake of Arthur W. Frank’s discussion of the shortcomings of modern medicine and narrative theory. Nietzsche’s approach to illness is then explored in the context of On the Genealogy of Morality and his conception of the human being as “the sick animal”. This account, it is argued, allows for Nietzsche to develop a conception of suffering that refuses to reduce it to (...)

    Peter R. Sedgwick (2013). Instrumentalism, Civil Association and the Ethics of Health Care: Understanding the “Politics of Faith”. [REVIEW] Health Care Analysis 21 (3):208-223.
    This paper offers critical reflection on the contemporary tendency to approach health care in instrumentalist terms. Instrumentalism is means-ends rationality. In contemporary society, the instrumentalist attitude is exemplified by the relationship between individual consumer and a provider of goods and services. The problematic nature of this attitude is illustrated by Michael Oakeshott’s conceptions of enterprise association and civil association. Enterprise association is instrumental; civil association is association in terms of an ethically delineated realm of practices. The latter offers a richer (...)

    Peter R. Sedgwick (2007). Nietzsche's Economy: Modernity, Normativity and Futurity. Palgrave Macmillan.
    In this book Peter Sedgwick puts forward a new case for viewing Nietzsche as an economic thinker, worthy to rank alongside Marx. Analysing Nietzsche's conception of economy, Sedgwick shows how it is taken by him to constitute the basic condition under which the 'human animal' developed. Economy, Nietzsche argues, endowed us with futurity: the ability to live with a view to long-term future possibilities rather than impulsively, as do other animals. Economy, in other words, is a defining aspect of human (...)
