Shedding New Light on the Ethical Dimension of Nietzsche's Philosophy

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


The new publications to review in the area of Nietzsche's ethics largely conceived can be divided into three groups. On the one hand we have Nietzsche's Noble Aims: Affirming Life, Contesting Modernity by Paul E. Kirkland and Differente Plausibilitiiten: Kant und Nietzsche, Tolstoi und Dostojewski Uber Vernunft, Moral und Kunst by Ekaterina Poljakova: whereas the first is based on a PhD dissertation, the second is based on a Habilitationsschrift and largely remains a Habilitationsschrift in terms of structure and style. Both works fall within the continental interpretative approach to the history of philosophy. What stands in the foreground in both books is a thorough engagement with Nietzsche's texts as well as with the history of their reception. They are treated in the first two sections of this review.
