Perspectives in continental philosophy.
Summary Throughout his writing career Nietzsche advocates the affirmation of earthly life as a way to counteract nihilism and asceticism. But what does Nietzsche mean by 'life' on earth? and what does the affirmation of such a life entail? This volume takes stock of the complexities and wide-ranging perspectives that Nietzsche brings to bear on the problem of life's becoming on earth by engaging various interpretative paradigms reaching from existentialist to Darwinist readings of Nietzsche and measuring their continued importance against the standards of the latest advances of scholarship on Nietzsche
