Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"^UThe New Nietzsche admirably shows the maturity of current Nietzsche scholarship, and of philosophy, for recognizing the rightful place Nietzsche deserves in main stream philosophical discussion. The collection's worth is enhanced by the great authority of the authors chosen by the editors..." George H. Leiner, New Nietzsche Studies

"...this book will prove useful to amateurs and professionals alike." Peter Berkowitz, The Philosophial Review
