This reading of Nietzsche counters the often misleading interpretation of post-modern commentators, largely under the influence of Derrida. In this critique, the author reconstructs Nietzche's relationship to Schopenhauer and Heidegger, and argues that Nietzsche was not, as the postmodernists contend, a relativist or pluralist, but that he cultivated an existential appreciation of truth.
