    Exemplars, Institutions, and Self-Knowledge in Schopenhauer as Educator.Sacha Golob - 2020 - Journal of Nietzsche Studies 52 (1):46-66.
    As a face in the mirror, so the morals of men are easily corrected with an exemplar.As Christopher Janaway observed, “the topic of Schopenhauer as Educator is really education rather than Schopenhauer.”2 Indeed, Nietzsche described it as addressing a “problem of education without equal”.3 This article reconstructs the pedagogical challenge and solution presented by Nietzsche in that text. It is obvious that Schopenhauer’s example is meant to underpin Nietzsche’s new pedagogy; what is less obvious is how exactly that exemplary role (...)

    Letter From the Editor.Jessica N. Berry - 2020 - Journal of Nietzsche Studies 51 (1):vii-vii.
    Dear Readers,In this issue, several authors contribute their insights on social and political themes in Nietzsche: Robert Miner looks to the works of the “middle period” to add nuance to Nietzsche’s critical attitude to socialism; Birte Loschenkohl asks again what Nietzsche has in mind with his enigmatic call for “great politics,” arguing that Zarathustra holds the key to understanding his vision; and Sacha Golob looks back to the second Untimely Meditation to analyze Nietzsche’s views on education and the role that (...)

    The German Online Editions of Nietzsche's Works: A User's Perspective.Marc Colsen - 2020 - Journal of Nietzsche Studies 51 (1):98-119.
    Suppose you are a student or an aspiring scholar taking your first steps into the labyrinthine world of Nietzsche text editions. You have been told two things. First, when reading, quoting, or referring to a Nietzsche text, use the most reliable text version available. There is a long history of textual forgeries and inaccuracies, so your choice of text version matters. Second, when interpreting Nietzsche’s work, avoid one-sidedness or cherry-picking. If you encounter tensions or contradictions, don’t try to smooth them (...)

    Nietzsche's Search for Philosophy: On the Middle Writings by Keith Ansell-Pearson, And: Nietzsche's Free Spirit Works: A Dialectical Reading by Matthew Meyer.Paul Franco - 2020 - Journal of Nietzsche Studies 51 (1):139-144.
    There was a time in the not too distant past when one would be obliged to begin a review like this with a comment about the relative neglect of Nietzsche’s middle works, HH, D, and GS. That time now seems to be well behind us. In recent years, there has been a spate of scholarly books devoted to these works, including Ruth Abbey’s Nietzsche’s Middle Period, Michael Ure’s Nietzsche’s Therapy: Self-Cultivation in the Middle Works, Jonathan Cohen’s Science, Culture, and Free (...)

    Nietzsche's "Great Politics" and Zarathustra's New Peoples.Birte Loschenkohl - 2020 - Journal of Nietzsche Studies 51 (1):21-45.
    [...] Revaluation of all values: that is my formula for the highest act of humanity’s self-reflection, an act that has become flesh and genius in me. [...] I am a bearer of glad tidings as no one ever was before; I am acquainted with incredibly elevated tasks, where even the concept of these tasks has been lacking so far; only from me onwards are there new hopes. With all this I am at the same time necessarily a man of calamity. (...)

    Nietzsche's The Gay Science: An Introduction by Michael Ure.Matthew Meyer - 2020 - Journal of Nietzsche Studies 51 (1):120-125.
    Michael Ure’s introduction to Friedrich Nietzsche’s The Gay Science is a welcome contribution to the secondary literature. He provides a clear and coherent account of this complex text and situates his interpretation within Nietzsche’s larger oeuvre and philosophical project. Ure advances an original thesis—GS is Nietzsche’s attempt to revive an ancient understanding of philosophy as a way of life—that will be of interest to scholars more generally, and yet he still succeeds in introducing the text to the novice reader. Although (...)

    Nietzsche as Critic and Proponent of Socialism: A Reappraisal Based on Human, All Too Human.Robert Miner - 2020 - Journal of Nietzsche Studies 51 (1):1-20.
    The picture of Nietzsche as a thinker who simply disdained socialism dies hard. Routinely assimilating Nietzsche to right-wing movements, popular journalism continues to reinforce this picture of his thought.1 Scholarly readers of Nietzsche have not generally made this crude mistake. Nonetheless, interpreters who regard Nietzsche’s thought as essentially nonpolitical generally ignore the passages in his works that mention socialism, perhaps assuming that what he says about the topic is superficial and merits little attention. “Anti-political” readings that see Nietzsche as intensely (...)

    Nietzsche on the Function and Creation of Value Systems.Iain Morrisson - 2020 - Journal of Nietzsche Studies 51 (1):67-97.
    We know from D and elsewhere that Nietzsche rejects the idea that values are mind-independent. He writes, “[T]here is nothing good, nothing beautiful, nothing sublime, nothing evil in itself, but [...] there are states of soul in which we impose such words upon things external to and within us”.1 But Nietzsche never supplements this position with an account of how evaluative properties are imposed.2 Though he often suggests that values originate with drives and affects, specific or systematic details on precisely (...)

    Unpublished Fragments From the Period of Thus Spoke Zarathustra (Summer 1882–Winter 1883/84) by Friedrich Nietzsche.Robin Small - 2020 - Journal of Nietzsche Studies 51 (1):133-139.
    The Stanford University Press edition of Nietzsche’s works in English translation continues here with the Nachlass from what is described as “the period of Thus Spoke Zarathustra.” Based on the edition of Giorgio Colli and Mazzino Montinari, it corresponds to volume 10 of their Sämtliche Werke: Kritische Studienausgabe and to volume 7/1 of their Kritische Gesamtausgabe: Werke, which appeared in 1976. Colli and Montinari’s editorial apparatus has been included, and the translators, Paul S. Loeb and David F. Tinsley, have added (...)

    Nietzsche on the Decadence and Flourishing of Culture by Andrew Huddleston. [REVIEW]Tom Stern - 2020 - Journal of Nietzsche Studies 51 (1):125-133.
    Andrew Huddleston’s book sets out a vision of Nietzsche as a philosopher of culture. His approach sheds light on some familiar problems and opens up a new way of thinking about cultural criticism. Nietzsche’s concern, he argues, lies with both the instrumental and final value of both individuals and whole cultures. In terms of the Anglophone secondary literature, this places Huddleston between Leiter, who tends to suggest that individuals are all that matters, and Young, who tends to suggest that communities (...)
