Nietzsche and Philosophyby Gilles Deleuze
Synopses & Reviews
First published in 1962, Nietzsche et la Philosophie demonstrates, with a rare combination of scholarly rigor and imaginative interpretation, how Friedrich Nietzsche initiated a new mode of philosophical thinking. A landmark, Nietzsche and Philosophy is one of the first books to dispute the deep-seated assumption that dialectics provide the only possible basis for radical thought. Deleuze's analysis stands at the beginning of an important avenue of postwar thought poststructuralism. For this first English translation, Gilles Deleuze has written a new introduction.
"To read Nietzsche and Philosophy is to experience the earnestness of Nietzsche's challenge to western philosophy." Times Higher Education Supplement
Nietzsche and Philosophy has long been recognized as one of the most important accounts of Nietzsche's philosophy, acclaimed for its rare combination of scholarly rigour and imaginative interpretation. Yet this is more than a major work on Nietzsche: the book opened a whole new avenue in post-war thought. Here Deleuze shows how Nietzsche began a new way of thinking which breaks with the dialectic as a method and escapes the confines of philosophy itself.
