Boldly contesting recent scholarship, Sallis argues that

"Sallis effectively calls into question some commonly accepted and simplistic ideas

Overview

"Sallis effectively calls into question some commonly accepted and simplistic ideas about Nietzsche's early thinking and its debt to Schopenhauer, and proposes alternatives that are worth considering."—Richard
