Book Description

This collection brings together original essays on a wide variety of topics in the broad area of ‘Nietzsche and Phenomenology’. Some of these papers take a thematic approach, thinking through key issues that connect or divide Nietzsche and phenomenology, while others approach the conjunction of the title via an encounter between Nietzsche and one of the central figures of the phenomenological tradition or other relevant philosophers. In either case, new and often surpising connections are uncovered in many of these essays, while others bring out the profound differences and discontinuities between aspects of Nietzsche’s project and the projects of phenomenologists. Through both of these general tendencies, significant new insights are won that broaden our understanding both of the work of Nietzsche and of twentieth-century phenomenology.

The international group of scholars gathered here, all of whom are steeped in the history of philosophy and particularly in the works of Nietzsche, includes some of the most important figures in contemporary continental philosophy, as well as some as yet relatively less well-known scholars. All are equally driven by the desire to get back to ‘the things themselves’, or ‘the matter of thought’, or however else that which incites us to think may be called.
