Nietsche is generally agreed to be one of the most influential thinkers of the twentieth century - but there is considerable disagreement about just what his significance is. Because a confrontation with Heidegger is central to Derrida's writings ( and because this confrontation is always bound up with Nietzsche), this book not only gives an account of the "New Nietzsche," but also provides a genealogy of Derrida's own writings. The final chapter sets deconstruction against hermeneutics, and a new Afterword traces Nietzsche's reception in the English-speaking world. Translated into English from the German by Steven Taubeneck. Includes an Index.
