Summary Read First Chapter image missing

First English translation of Nikos Kazantzakis’s 1909 doctoral dissertation on Nietzsche.

This book represents the first English translation of Nikos Kazantzakis’s 1909 dissertation on Friedrich Nietzsche’s political and legal philosophy. Before Kazantzakis became one of the best-known modern Greek writers, he was an avid student of Nietzsche’s thought, discovering Nietzsche while studying law in Paris from 1907 to 1909. This powerful assessment of Nietzsche’s radical political thought is translated here from a restored and authentic recent edition of the original. Its deep insights are unencumbered by the encrustations that generations of Nietzsche’s admirers and detractors have deposed on the original Nietzschean corpus. The book also offers a revealing glimpse into the formative stage of Kazantzakis’s thought.

“This informative and richly poetic translation … comes … with comprehensive sources for the many quotations and allusions Kazantzakis uses throughout his argument; the ‘Notes’ section covers almost half of Makridis’s book, in fact, and … all critics will welcome its diligent attention to detail … [A] marvelous and timely book.” — Southern Humanities Review

“Thanks to the efforts of the translator, Kazantzakis’s bold, appreciative interpretation of Nietzsche is now available to Anglophone readers. While other figures from the period offered their thoughts on Nietzsche, none approaches the stature and genius of Kazantzakis. This book opens a unique window onto the European intellectual scene at the beginning of the twentieth century.” — Daniel W. Conway, author of Nietzsche and the Political

Nikos Kazantzakis (1883–1957) is the author of Zorba the Greek, The Last Temptation of Christ, and the modern Greek epic Odyssey. Odysseus Makridis is Assistant Professor in Philosophy and the Humanities at Fairleigh Dickinson University and the translator of Letters and Sayings of Epicurus.
