Promotional Information

First published in 1965, Danto's study argues that Nietzsche offers a systematic and coherent philosophy, anticipating many of the questions that define contemporary philosophy. Danto's commentaries helped canonize Nietzsche as a philosopher and continue to illuminate subtleties in Nietzsche's work as well as his immense contributions to the philosophies of science, language, and logic. This new edition, which includes five additional essays, not only further enhances our understanding of Nietzsche's philosophy; it responds to the misunderstandings that continue to muddy his intellectual reputation.

About the Author

Arthur Danto is the Emeritus Johnsonian Professor of Philosophy at Columbia University. He is the art critic for The Nation and has served as president of the American Philosophical Association. His many books include The Philosophical Disenfranchisement of Art and Art in the Historical Present, which won the National Book Critics Circle Award. He lives in New York City.


With skill and discernment Danto reveals the important strands of Nietzsche's wildly tangled skein and weaves them into a pattern. New York Times Book Review
