 About the Book 

Kathleen Higgins and Robert Solomons comprehensive, lucid, and often humorous overview of Nietzsches philosophy sings with the joy of his own work--a joy, the authors point out, that is often misunderstood or overlooked. Central to NietzschesMoreKathleen Higgins and Robert Solomons comprehensive, lucid, and often humorous overview of Nietzsches philosophy sings with the joy of his own work--a joy, the authors point out, that is often misunderstood or overlooked. Central to Nietzsches thought is the call to celebrate life for its own sake. Yet, as Nietzsche himself realized, this often requires provocation. Through both the style and substance of his work, Nietzsche sought to inspire heated dialogue, encouraging readers to say yes to philosophy, and to life. Many factors get in the way of recognizing and rising to the challenge, however--not the least of which are the rumors surrounding his life, work, and sympathies- his provocative views and prose- and his vivid attacks on systems of thought and individuals. With sense and sensitivity, Higgins and Solomon, both philosophy professors at the University of Texas at Austin, debunk 30 common rumors, offer questions to help guide our reading, provide brief annotations of Nietzsches works, and examine his heroes and nemeses (sometimes the same people). In addition, they thoughtfully assess concepts central to Nietzsches philosophy, including those critical to his affirmative philosophy. This thorough approach, combined with clear writing and a sense of playfulness (attributes Nietzsche would have appreciated), offers insight into Nietzsches philosophy without sacrificing its nuance or power--a substantial gift, indeed. --Stephanie Wickersham
