Few philosophers have been as widely misunderstood as Nietzsche. His detractors and followers alike have often fundamentally misinterpreted him, distorting his views and intentions and criticizing or celebrating him for reasons removed from the views he actually held. Now Nietzsche assesses his place in European thought, concentrating upon his writings in the last decade of his productive life.
'Original in presenting in English a balanced account of what Nietzsche's fairly steady view really was on such matters as the nature of truth and knowledge, theism, the will to power, morality, and in a valuable final chapter, on art.' - Times Higher Education Supplement
