Synopses & Reviews
This new edition is the product of a collaboration between a Germanist and a philosopher who is also a Nietzsche scholar. The translation strives not only to communicate a sense of Nietzsches style but also to convey his meaning accuratelyand thus to be an important advance on previous translations of this work. A superb set of notes ensures that Clark and Swensen's Genealogy will become the new edition of choice for classroom use.
The text contains some of Nietzsche's most disturbing ideas, including the "slave revolt" in morality, which he claims began with the Jews and has now triumphed, and the "blond beast" that must erupt, which he claims to find behind all civilisation.
Includes bibliographical references (p. xxv-xxxviii) and index.
