Nietzsche: A Critical Reader / Edition 1

Friedrich Wilhelm Nietzsche (1844-1900) has exerted a decisive and radical influence on the central themes of twentieth-century philosophy, art and literature.This volume collects together for the very first time a record of the key readings which comprise the three principal traditions or methodologies of Nietzsche interpretation: the Anglo-American, German and French traditions. In so doing, the volume provides a vital record of and guide to the central elements of Nietzsche scholarship, and encourages an appreciation of the divergences and similarities which both separate and unify these interpretations of Nietzsche's work.
