Overview

The essays in Nietzsche and Modern German Thought critically consider Nietzsche's relation to Kant, Schopenhauer, Hegel, Marx, and Heidegger, as well as to major movements including neo-Kantianism and hermeneutics. The contributors seek to demonstrate that the radical

and original nature of Nietzsche's style of thinking can only be properly appreciated when situated in the modern philosophical tradition from which it emerged and in which it now engages. The whole question of tradition is raised in assessing Nietzsche's achievement, providing valuable

insights into neglected and relatively unknown aspects of his thought.
