    Perspectivism and Falsification Revisited: Nietzsche, Nehamas, and Me. Clark - 2018 - Journal of Nietzsche Studies 49 (1):3-30.
    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 (...)

    On the Problem of Affective Nihilism. Creasy - 2018 - Journal of Nietzsche Studies 49 (1):31-51.
    In The Affirmation of Life, Bernard Reginster argues that Nietzschean nihilism is best characterized as a "philosophical claim."1 This account has inspired a number of critical responses from contemporary scholars.2 Ken Gemes and John Richardson, for example, both point out that while Reginster's characterization presents nihilism as a purely cognitive phenomenon involving particular beliefs about meaning and value, it is just as frequently presented by Nietzsche as a feeling-based phenomenon, a weariness that comports one negatively toward the world of which (...)

    Nietzsche, Foucault Und Die Medizin. Philosophische Impulse Für Die Medizinethik Ed. By Orsolya Friedrich Et Al.Marta Faustino - 2018 - Journal of Nietzsche Studies 49 (1):130-136.
    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 (...)

    Becoming Who You Are: Nietzsche on Self-Creation. Franco - 2018 - Journal of Nietzsche Studies 49 (1):52-77.
    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 (...)

    Nietzsche as a Scholar of Antiquity Ed. By Anthony K. Jensen and Helmut Heit, And: Plato and Nietzsche: Their Philosophical Art by Mark Anderson.Christopher Janaway - 2018 - Journal of Nietzsche Studies 49 (1):136-142.
    The editors of Nietzsche as a Scholar of Antiquity claim with some justification that few philosophers, and even fewer classicists, have "taken the time to understand [Nietzsche] on his own terms as a scholar of antiquity". "Our primary aim," Jensen and Heit say, "is to show not how Nietzsche's earlier works on antiquity help us to understand Nietzsche, but how they may improve our understanding of antiquity." I shall suggest that not every contribution to the collection succeeds in that primary (...)

    Nietzsche's Ethics of Danger. Kuehne - 2018 - Journal of Nietzsche Studies 49 (1):78-101.
    In September 1886, the poet and critic Josef Victor Widmann penned a review of BGE titled "Nietzsche's Dangerous Book,"1 observing that a keen sense of danger pervaded the work.2 Nietzsche, who often felt misunderstood and wrongfully attacked, responded enthusiastically to Widmann on June 28, 1887: Mainly, I have to thankfully inform you, after a year's time no less, that your review has been by far the most "intelligent" one that this uncongenial book has received until now. Poets are, after all, (...)

    Nietzsche on the Sources of Agonal Moderation. Pearson - 2018 - Journal of Nietzsche Studies 49 (1):102-129.
    I do not recommend peace to you, but victory instead. Your work shall be a struggle, your peace shall be a victory!As can be seen from the epigraph, Nietzsche famously entreats his readers to pursue a life of struggle and victory as opposed to one of peace. 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 (...)

    Nietzsche and Dostoevsky: Philosophy, Morality, Tragedy Ed. By Jeff Love and Jeffrey Metzger.Paolo Stellino - 2018 - Journal of Nietzsche Studies 49 (1):142-147.
    This volume collects eight essays on Nietzsche and Dostoevsky written by scholars from different humanities fields. What unites them is the idea that, after more than a century, the writings of Nietzsche and Dostoevsky and the relations between them still represent a major challenge for contemporary readers. The range of subjects that the authors tackle is wide, from crime, truth, art, and nihilism to pessimism, tragedy, and the unconscious. The result is a stimulating collection of essays that explore some of (...)
