    The Psychology of Perspectivism: A Question for Nietzsche Studies Now.R. Lanier Anderson - 2018 - Journal of Nietzsche Studies 49 (2):221.
    There are many pressing questions for Nietzsche studies at present, but I will attempt neither a systematic catalog nor any argument that one or two have greater immediacy than all others. Instead, I will sketch one issue that I find especially pertinent: the relation between perspectivism and Nietzsche’s core commitments in moral psychology. Work on this relation can build on certain significant results from the recent literature, but I believe that substantial progress remains to be made. I say that not (...)

    The Wisdom of Silenus: Suffering in The Birth of Tragedy.Katie Brennan - 2018 - Journal of Nietzsche Studies 49 (2):174.
    In BT Nietzsche famously claims that “only as an aesthetic phenomenon do existence and the world appear justified”.1 For Nietzsche, art has the potential to make life appear meaningful and worth living—art can justify life.2 Nietzsche looks to ancient Greek tragedy as an art form that was, historically speaking, particularly successful at affirming life. It provided the ancients with “metaphysical solace [...] the solace that in the ground of things, and despite all changing appearances, life is mighty and pleasurable”. For (...)

    Nietzsche: Old and New Questions. Clark - 2018 - Journal of Nietzsche Studies 49 (2):228.
    Let me begin by stating that I do not believe that there are topics that have been overdone in Nietzsche scholarship or that we need new shiny questions. I consider it likely that contributions can still be made on just about any topic, including such well-trodden ones as the nature of Nietzsche’s naturalism, his metaethics, his account of morality, and his claims about the sovereign individual, the bad conscience, and even perspectivism and truth. On the latter, just over a year (...)

    Why We Read Nietzsche.Andrew Huddleston - 2018 - Journal of Nietzsche Studies 49 (2):233.
    Our brief here is to highlight some of the most pressing questions for Nietzsche studies. I do not, for my part, focus on particular philosophical issues, such as Nietzsche’s views on topics in ethics, moral psychology, philosophy of action, and the like. Important avenues of study indeed are open here, and some remain underexplored. The matters I would instead like to flag are metaphilosophical: issues about Nietzsche’s own, often very distinctive, approach to philosophy and philosophical writing, and issues about how (...)

    More Modesty, Less Charity.Christopher Janaway - 2018 - Journal of Nietzsche Studies 49 (2):240.
    Suppose someone asks, “Where does Nietzsche stand in the debate between today’s error theorists and non-cognitivists?” Wouldn’t that be rather like asking what Bismarck’s policy is on the European Union or whether Mahler thinks MP3 streaming is killing live music? We could certainly pose a more careful, speculative kind of question, and ask what these figures from the late nineteenth century “would have thought” about today’s issues, and that exercise might be illuminating. But caveats apply: first, we should enter such (...)

    Moral Critique and Philosophical Psychology.Paul Katsafanas - 2018 - Journal of Nietzsche Studies 49 (2):245.
    Given the richness of Nietzsche’s texts and the variety of his concerns, picking just a few key topics is no easy task. I am going to focus on two issues that are both obvious and elusive: obvious, because they are some of Nietzsche’s central concerns, and elusive, because the literature hasn’t yet come to terms with these topics. Nietzsche’s approach to these topics is distinctive, his arguments complex and interwoven, so that his discussions can appear incongruously varied, even contradictory.First, how (...)

    Nietzsche's Metaphysics of the Will to Power: The Possibility of Value by Tsarina Doyle.Thomas Lambert - 2018 - Journal of Nietzsche Studies 49 (2):284-290.
    Tsarina Doyle’s bold new effort to interpret Nietzsche as a metaphysician will be of interest to readers concerned with his views on metaphysics, metaethics, and the philosophy of mind. Doyle argues that Nietzsche proposes the metaphysics of the will to power in response to the problem of nihilism, which emerges via the recognition of the unjustifiability of a traditional presupposition about our values—namely, that they are objective and meaningful in virtue of “corresponding to value properties instantiated in a mind-independent and (...)

    The Truth Is Terrible.Brian Leiter - 2018 - Journal of Nietzsche Studies 49 (2):151.
    Nietzsche famously says, in his unusual autobiography EH and elsewhere in his corpus,1 that “the truth is terrible,” and I would like to begin by canvassing the various considerations in support of that conclusion, both ones that Nietzsche explicitly acknowledged, and also others, offered in a Nietzschean spirit, that support his verdict.First, for Nietzsche, as for Schopenhauer before him, there are the terrible existential truths about the human situation. The fact that all of us are destined for oblivion only scratches (...)

    I would like to answer this question about the future of Nietzsche studies with a question about Nietzsche’s studies of the future. From the start of his career, with BT, until the end, with EH, Nietzsche was obsessed with imagining, anticipating, and shaping the future. Why is that? What is it about Nietzsche’s distinctive philosophical orientation that caused him to be so preoccupied in this way?We Nietzsche scholars have spent considerable time and energy dwelling on his historicist convictions and practices, (...)

  19. Nietzsche Als Dichter. Lyrik – Poetologie – Rezeption Ed. By Katharina Grätz and Sebastian Kaufmann. [REVIEW]Philip Mills - 2018 - Journal of Nietzsche Studies 49 (2):290-295.
    It is no secret that, for Nietzsche, philosophy and poetry are closely related. Some of his most important works contain poems, or even present themselves as poetry. Yet, in their efforts to make Nietzsche a respectable philosopher, scholars have turned their attention away from this poetic dimension and have privileged instead the philosophical dimension of his work. The title of the present volume, Nietzsche als Dichter, echoes Arthur Danto’s influential Nietzsche as Philosopher, and therefore aims to reinstate the part previously (...)

    Perspectivism and Falsification: A Reply to Maudemarie Clark.Alexander Nehamas - 2018 - Journal of Nietzsche Studies 49 (2):214.
    When and for how long did Nietzsche accept the “falsification thesis”—a view that “seems to amount to a denial that any human belief is, or could be, true”?1 I believe that the thesis is already absent from the first edition of GS.2 Maudemarie Clark argues that my interpretation of the relevant passages of GS as well as of the scope and nature of perspectivism is mistaken.3 I don’t agree.I begin with a few remarks on GS 110, where Nietzsche writes, “Over (...)

    Philosophy, Psychology, and Theory.Bernard Reginster - 2018 - Journal of Nietzsche Studies 49 (2):260.
    The manner in which Nietzsche presents his ideas has long baffled his readers. Some take it to indicate that he is not a pursuing a traditional sort of philosophical project; for instance, he is not building a comprehensive system, composed of distinctive theories in all of the main areas of philosophy, such as a theory of knowledge, of value, of language, and so on. According to some commentators, his philosophical message, so to speak, is not one that can be conveyed (...)

    Nietzsche on Loneliness, Self-Transformation, and the Eternal Recurrence.Justin Remhof - 2018 - Journal of Nietzsche Studies 49 (2):194.
    Nietzsche’s presentation of the eternal recurrence in Gay Science 341 is often viewed as a practical thought experiment meant to radically transform us. But exactly why and how we are supposed to be transformed is not clear. I contend that addressing these issues requires taking a close look at the psychological setting of the passage. The eternal recurrence is presented in our “loneliest loneliness.” I argue that facing the eternal recurrence from a state of profound loneliness both motivates self-transformation and (...)

    Psychological Nihilism, Passions, and Neglected Works: Three Topics for Nietzsche Studies.Mattia Riccardi - 2018 - Journal of Nietzsche Studies 49 (2):266.
    In the last two decades or so, Anglophone Nietzsche studies have discussed extensively Nietzsche’s views on metaethics, naturalism, free will, art, and morality, among other topics. More recently, substantial work has been produced on his philosophical psychology, which had long been a neglected area. What should come next?A topic that I think is in need of philosophical reappraisal is Nietzsche’s diagnosis of nihilism. “Nihilism” is one of those terms that, though it appears only a few times in his published works, (...)

    As to which of Nietzsche’s own topics is most important for Nietzsche scholars to address, I think the answer is clear: his critique of morality. This is his own idea of where his main importance lies. He also stresses the extreme difficulty of the task. It’s hard not just because the issues are so very complex, but because anyone who tries to evaluate morality is inhibited and misled by his or her own ingrained allegiance to it. We cannot find sufficient (...)

    Must We Choose Between Real Nietzsche and Good Philosophy? A Streitschrift.Tom Stern - 2018 - Journal of Nietzsche Studies 49 (2):277.
    When I began writing about Nietzsche, working within an Anglophone philosophy department, I found little to read about the methods and goals of the practice I was engaging in. This was very surprising to colleagues in other disciplines, for whom “methods” classes were standard fare. Within my discipline, conversely, pretty much nobody asked questions about methodology. Increasingly, this has become, to my mind, one of the greatest challenges facing philosophical Nietzsche scholarship: to give an account of itself. My guess is (...)

    Contesting Nietzsche by Christa Davis Acampora.Joel A. Van Fossen - 2018 - Journal of Nietzsche Studies 49 (2):295-300.
    In Contesting Nietzsche, Christa Davis Acampora analyzes the significance for Nietzsche’s thought of the ancient Greek agon. She aims to show why the agon is important for understanding several philosophical themes prevalent in Nietzsche’s work, including naturalism, agency, and responsibility. Acampora also argues that we should understand Nietzsche’s own engagement with other philosophical contestants as part of his own agonistic enterprise, highlighting Homer, Socrates, Paul, and Wagner as four such competitors. Acampora’s analysis of the agon is helpful for understanding how (...)

    Dear Readers,We bring you several special pieces in this issue of The Journal of Nietzsche Studies. Our three articles, all of which take up themes of suffering, nihilism, and loneliness in Nietzsche’s work, remind us of his lifelong struggle against the pessimistic worldview that was, among other things, Schopenhauer’s legacy and the hallmark of his system. All three examinations deepen our understanding of the affirmation of life on Nietzsche’s terms. “The Wisdom of Silenus,” by Katie Brennan, is published as the (...)

    I remember well my initial reaction when Nietzsche: Life as Literature appeared in 1985.1 I was busy working on my own book on Nietzsche and I was worried that Nehamas had already said everything I wanted to say in it. We were dealing with the same problem: the apparently problematic, even paradoxical nature of Nietzsche's perspectivism and his position on truth. And our aim was the same: to show that this position was plausible, perhaps even reasonable, and at least worthy (...)

    The idea underlying Nietzsche, Foucault und die Medizin is laudable in at least two respects. First, it brings together Nietzsche and Foucault—a connection so multifaceted and fruitful that, despite the many recent volumes and essays devoted to it, it is still far from exhausted. Second, it focuses on the ethics of medicine, which, given the extraordinary development of medicine in the past two centuries and its related ethical challenges, is a field that increasingly demands philosophical reflection, finding in Nietzsche and (...)

    In GS, Nietzsche utters for the first time the paradoxical formula that sums up a good deal of his ethical thought: "What does your conscience say?—'You should become who you are'".1 The paradox, of course, lies in the odd juxtaposition of becoming and being: how can one become what one already is? Nietzsche repeats the formula toward the end of the original edition of GS, connecting it explicitly to the idea of self-creation: "We, however, want to become who we are—human (...)

This is not a singular occurrence. For instance, in a notebook entry of the same period, he calls for an "unleashing of struggle [Kampf]" with the objective of instigating sociocultural rejuvenation, thereby echoing many (...)
