Summary Read First Chapter image missing

This clearly written book, intended for both specialists and nonspecialists, focuses on Nietzsche's later writings, where he appears unsystematic and indifferent to questions of truth.

"This book undertakes three important and related tasks. The first is a comprehensive analysis of Nietzsche's notoriously slippery writings; the second is a critique of several major positions in Nietzsche interpretation; and the third is a proposal for a kind of philosophizing 'beyond the truth standard,' a philosophy without nostalgia for the lost grounds of truth. These topics are important today, and form the basis for a considerable debate about the significance of Nietzsche in particular and his role in shaping the twentieth century in general.

"Winchester's interpretation of Nietzsche is convincing, his analysis of the French tradition is very strong, and his suggestions for an alternative virtue are very interesting." --Steven Taubeneck, University of British Columbia

"[The author] is quite erudite....He is an informed reader of Nietzsche, and along the way he makes numerous insightful comments about both Nietzsche and the wide range of Nietzsche interpretations discussed in this book. The attention to recent German scholarship (Muller-Lauter and Abel, in particular) and to Deleuze distinguishes this book from most English discussions of Nietzsche." -- Alan Schrift, Grinnell College

James J. Winchester teaches Philosophy at Spelman College.
