  • Abbreviations and Citations of Friedrich Nietzsche's Works

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: The same citation format is used throughout the journal. References to Nietzsche's texts are given in the body of the articles and reviews. References to Nietzsche's unpublished writings are standardized, whenever possible, to refer to the most accessible print editions of Nietzsche's notebooks and publications: Kritische Studienausgabe (ksa), compiled under the general editorship of Giorgio Colli and Mazzino Montinari and based on the complete edition of the Kritische Gesamtausgabe (kgw) (Berlin and New York: Walter de Gruyter, 1967ff) or the electronic version published in the Nietzsche Source collection (http://www.nietzschesource.org/eKGWB) [abbreviated ekgwb]).

  • Artistry and Genealogy: The Literary Structure of On the Genealogy of
           Morality's First Treatise

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: In the opening sentences of GM, Friedrich Nietzsche intimates the book's purpose and audience. "We are unknown to ourselves, we knowers [. . .] we are necessarily strangers to ourselves [. . .] we are not 'knowers' with respect to ourselves" (GM P:1).1 Not for a moment does Nietzsche believe that he lacks self-knowledge: GM itself is proof of that. This ironic statement, therefore, serves to focus the reader's attention on the goal of the three treatises: bringing the "knowers," the post-Christian scholars and intellectuals, to knowledge of themselves.2 Still, this is no easy task. The number of pages between the preface's initial lament and the clarion call in the book's closing sections (GM III:24–27) suggests ... Read More

  • The Fanatic and the Last Man

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: I want to describe a tension in Nietzsche's thought, but not only in Nietzsche's thought. It is a tension that pervades our thinking about the relation between commitment and evaluative critique. Here is one way of describing it.On the one hand, we admire the devoted, wholehearted person of principle. Consider some captivating examples, often cited as portraits of integrity: Socrates; Antigone; Thomas More; Martin Luther; or, for some Nietzschean examples, Goethe, Napoleon, perhaps Wagner. These people adopt immensely difficult goals and carry on unconflicted and whole, utterly committed to their tasks. They are willing to sacrifice for their goals. They are willing to set aside material comforts and conventionally ... Read More

  • Nietzsche's Nervous Ascetics: The Physiological Roots of the Ascetic Ideal

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Depending on how you count, Nietzsche seems to make no fewer than five distinct claims about the origins of the ascetic ideal in GM. The final and definitive such claim comes in GM III:13 when he says that "the ascetic ideal springs from the protective and healing instincts of a degenerating life, which uses every means to maintain itself and struggles for its existence; it indicates a partial physiological inhibition and exhaustion against which the deepest instincts of life [. . .] continually struggle with new methods and inventions."1 This passage is actually a summation of sorts because Nietzsche has already described parts of the same struggle between the deep healing instincts and the combination of ...

  • Nietzsche on Self-Reverence

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Self-respect has been a central notion in ethical theory since Kant. It is so prominent that John Rawls deemed it "perhaps the most important primary good."1 For many modern ethicists in the Kantian tradition, self-respect involves viewing oneself as having moral standing equal to other rational beings. But the idea that one has moral status equal to others is a separate issue from whether one has reasons for self-respect as a kind of self-directed pro-attitude. In this article, I present some doubts about the justifiability of Kant's notion of self-respect in this second, pro-attitude sense. I then discuss an alternative to Kantian self-respect derived from Nietzsche's discussion of nobility in BGE, which he calls ... Read More

  • Nietzsche's Moral Psychology by Mark Alfano (review)

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: If you're a Nietzsche scholar and you haven't heard of Mark Alfano's book, you're not paying attention. Published in 2019, Nietzsche's Moral Psychology has already been reviewed by leading Nietzsche scholars in numerous venues (including Notre Dame Philosophical Review, Ethics, and Nietzsche-Studien), dissected in a book symposium published in this very journal (Journal of Nietzsche Studies 51.2 [2020]: 241–72), and featured on a popular philosophy blog's book review forum (with comments from the author). Its broad influence is already evidenced by the extensive scholarly debate it has provoked and the predominantly positive evaluations it has received, and its impact is particularly noteworthy because of its ...

  • The Challenge of Nietzsche: How to Approach His Thought by Jeremy Fortier
           (review)

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Jeremy Fortier's book is concerned for the most part not with an analysis of Nietzsche's thought as such, but with Nietzsche's autobiographical and metaphilosophical reflections on his own philosophy and the various stages it underwent. The agenda for the book is presented at the beginning: "the aim . . . is not merely to acquire biographical information about Nietzsche, but to understand how his reflections on his particular life can contribute to the general understanding of experiences that are fundamental to all human life: independence, love, health" (3).In the first chapter, which belongs to the first part titled "Independence," Fortier analyzes the preface to GM. On Fortier's reading, "the Genealogy presents ... Read More

  • Individuality and Beyond: Nietzsche Reads Emerson by Benedetta Zavatta
           (review)

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Three decades have elapsed since Stanley Cavell, regarding Nietzsche's debt to Emerson, remarked, "no matter how obvious to anyone who cares to verify it, it stays incredible" (Conditions Handsome and Unhandsome: The Constitution of Emersonian Perfectionism [Chicago: University of Chicago Press, 1990], 40). With this book, Benedetta Zavatta has dispelled completely and forever that aura of the incredible. The book is a great advance on the two previous monographs dedicated to the Emerson–Nietzsche connection (George Stack, Nietzsche and Emerson: An Elective Affinity [Athens: Ohio University Press, 1992], and David Mikics, The Romance of Individualism in Emerson and Nietzsche [Athens: Ohio University Press, 2003]) ...

  • Nietzsche's Protestant Fathers: A Study in Prodigal Christianity by Thomas
           R. Nevin (review)

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Thomas Nevin's new reading of Nietzsche is at home on an island of misfit toys. Like Ariosto's Astolfo, who goes to the moon in search of Orlando's sanity only to find the good things that humanity has shed, Nevin has gone—not quite as far as the moon—in search of a true Christian. That Nietzsche might brook accommodation in his father's house, however, pleads convincingly that Luther may have wanted to reform the Church but ended up installing a lost-and-found box instead. Late of the quincentenary of Luther's Ninety-Five Theses, Nevin has sorted through half a millennium of Christian miscellany and found the following items: one failed monk who refused to presume that he could love God; a late gnostic theosophist ...

  • Nietzsche and Contemporary Ethics by Simon Robertson (review)

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Simon Robertson's Nietzsche and Contemporary Ethics is a significant contribution to analytic-style interpretations of Nietzsche and his impact on contemporary ethics. Robertson proposes a Nietzschean-inspired ethics, which, while (intentionally) not committed to everything Nietzsche says, is largely consistent with Nietzsche's views. The resultant position is an error theory about contemporary morality with a positive alternative that is naturalist, internalist, irrealist, cognitivist, non-elitist, non-categorical and non-universal, but produces individualistic, normative claims on flourishing and excellence. In short, Robertson espouses a Nietzschean Individualist, Non-elitist, Perfectionism.While this book does ... Read More
