Nietzsche's Revolution: Décadence, Politics, and Sexuality

Palgrave-Macmillan (2009)

Abstract
Nietzsche’s Revolution argues that Nietzsche is a revolutionary who aims to liberate modernity by overthrowing Christianity. Although Nietzsche’s terrified inability to follow through on this revolutionary project causes him to retreat into a retrograde essentialism of race and gender that betrays his own revolutionary promise, Nietzsche’s complicity in this failure bequeaths this revolution to us, his future readers, who can take it up in the form of poststructuralist queer theory and politics. This is a revolutionary future Nietzsche could neither have foreseen nor endorsed, but is the necessary consequence of his quest to overthrow Christianity’s cult of meaning
