Promotional Information

Alenka Zupancic has given us a strikingly new reading of Nietzsche. Against the postmodernist domestication of Nietzsche's philosophy, Zupancic restores the shock of Nietzsche's style and thought, reading him alongside Jacques Lacan and Alain Badiou as a revolutionary 'philosopher of the event. -- Christoph Cox, Associate Professor of Philosophy, Hampshire College You have heard it said that 'we are not yet thinking.' Alenka Zupancic gives us proof to the contrary in this exhilarating book. By pulling from Nietzsche's texts a powerful new concept -- that of Noon -- she decisively vacates the claim that Nietszche was the champion of a relativism necessitated by the death of God. Arguing, rather, that skeptical relativism resurrects God for the modern world, she reevaluates completely Nietzsche's contribution to thought. It is impossible to overstate the significance of The Shortest Shadow's philosophical achievement. -- Joan Copjec, author of Imagine There's No Woman Alenka Zupancic is one of those rare writers whose capacity for decision is equal to her intelligence...Read these essays and you will see what kind of a spiritual explosion a writing bomb can produce in the hands of a true pyrotechnist. -- Alain Badiou
