Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"Emphasizing the various senses of experiment, temptation, and seduction wrapped up in this German word, Conway sees Nietzche as a thinker of eros, concerned to articulate the possibility of exceptional figures—philosophers, artists,, or saints—who are strong enough to squander their strength and resources in legislating (literally or metaphorically) for the rest of us...Conway's reading should actually help in giving a fresh analysis of these themes that shows how they can be made intelligible without implicating them in such disasters." - Gary Shapiro, University of Richmond
