Starting with Nietzsche

Part of the Starting with... Series

Starting with Nietzsche Synopsis

Covering all the key concepts of Nietzsches work, Starting with Nietzsche provides an accessible introduction to the development of and motivation behind the ideas that are embodied in his key works. Thematically structured, the book encourages the reader to engage with Nietzsches thought, leading him or her to a more thorough understanding of the roots of his philosophical concerns and the enormous influence of his ideas. Offering coverage of the full range of Nietzsches writings, the book shows that, despite Nietzsches notoriously anti-systematic approach, his philosophy in fact constitutes a coherent and unified system of thought. Crucially the book introduces the major motivations and influences behind Nietzsches work, clarifies his idea of the role of the philosopher and demonstrates the impact his work has had on a huge range of topics in contemporary scholarship. This is the ideal introduction for anyone coming to the work of this challenging thinker for the first time.

Starting with Nietzsche Press Reviews

'As well as providing a clear, accessible introduction that situates Nietzsche's thought within the history of European philosophy, Ullrich Haase offers an original, compelling, and relentlessly philosophical analysis of key ideas such as Eternal Recurrence, Will to Power, and the Ubermensch. This is not only a first-rate introductory text: it is one of those all-too-rare academic books that actually helps us to understand ourselves and the world we live in, and it will be essential and exhilarating reading for students and specialists alike.' - Clare Carlisle, University of Liverpool, UK
