Overview

This volume aims to inspire a returban to the energetics of Nietzsche's prose and the critical intensity of his approach to nihilism. For too long contemporary thought has been dominated by a depressed "what is to be done?" All is regarded to be in vain, nothing is deemed real, there is nothing new seen under the sun. Such a "postmodern" lament is easily confounded with an apathetic reluctance to think engagedly. Hence the contributors here draw on a variety of issues—the future of life, the nature of life-forms, the techno-sciences, the body, religions—as a way of tackling the question of nihilism's pertinence to us now.

Aims to inspire a return to the energetics of Nietzsche's prose and the critical intensity of his approach to nihilism and to give back to the future its rightful futurity. Contributors draw on a variety of issues, including the future of life, the nature of life-forms, the body, and religion, as a way of tackling the question of nihilism's pertinence. They take as their lead Nietzsche's suggestion that this world is a "monster of energy, without beginning or end." Pearson teaches philosophy at the University of Warwick. Morgan teaches literary and cultural studies at University College Northampton. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
