Friedrich Nietzsche and the Politics of Transfiguration provides a comprehensive analysis of the politics that are implicit and explicit in Nietzsche's work. Tracy B. Strong's discussion shows that Nietzsche's writings are of a piece and have as their common goal a politics of transfiguration: a politics that seeks radical change in how human beings live and act in the modern Western world. This edition includes a new introduction that demonstrates how the styles of Nietzsche's writings expand our notions of democratic politics and democratic understanding.

Industry Reviews

"An important attempt to understand Nietzsche's major doctrines in a way relevant to thought concerning the current crisis in Western culture... A significant contribution to Nietzsche literature." -- Glen Martin, Journal of the American Academy of Religion "The heart of the book is an excellent discussion of Nietzsche's views of the Greeks, a topic that Nietzsche, as a trained philologist, returned to again and again. The coverage is complete and insightful, carrying us into the discussion of Nietzsche's politics which gives the book its title, its novelty and its most exciting theme." -- Robert C. Solomon, International Studies in Philosophy ADVANCE PRAISE "This is one of the best English essays on Nietzsche. One need not agree with Strong's conclusions in order to benefit from his lucid analysis and to estimate the sobriety of his judgment." -- Stanley Rosen, Borden Parker Browne Professor of Philosophy, Boston University "Takes seriously both the personal and the political side of Nietzsche's writing and succeeds in showing that the two are intimately connected to one another. It is sophisticated and readable, it addresses a specific subject of serious concern to many readers of Nietzsche, and it also provides an introduction to many of his central views." -- Alexander Nehamas, University of Pennsylvania
