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

Vanessa Lemm

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


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.
