Among the works discussed are On the Genealogy of Morals, Beyond Good and Evil, Thus Spoke Zarathustra, Twilight of the Idols and The Will to Power.

Industry Reviews

"A wealth of philosophically insightful, intellectually provocative, and scholarly impressive accounts."--Teaching Philosophy "Very helpful compilation of interpretations of Nietzsche--all of which are both useful in understanding Nietzsche and provocative in themselves."--Manuel Davenport, Texas A&M University "An excellent collection of essays; very intelligently conceived. The emphasis on individual works makes it a valuable companion to Nietzsche's own writings."--Donald Rutherford, Emory University "An invaluable aid to students who, as the editors note, 'read one book at a time.'...By treating each book separately and focusing on the strengths, weaknesses, and coherence of each individual work, this collection of accessible essays may prove more useful to first-time readers of Nietzsche than anthologies which address Nietzsche thematically or topically....This anthology is enthusiastically recommended for all undergraduate and graduate collections."--Choice "The most distinguished commentators on Nietzsche active today....The aim has been to produce a volume that will be of assistance primarily to students in the earlier stages of their study of Nietzsche, and in this, I think, it must surely be accounted a success."--German Studies Review "A wealth of philosophically insightful, intellectually provocative, and scholarly impressive accounts."--Teaching Philosophy "Very helpful compilation of interpretations of Nietzsche--all of which are both useful in understanding Nietzsche and provocative in themselves."--Manuel Davenport, Texas A&M University "An excellent collection of essays; very intelligently conceived.
