9780297776369: Nietzsche: A Critical Life

Friedrich Wilhelm Nietzsche 1844-1900‘God is dead’, announced Nietzsche – before going on to abolish himself. For there is no Nietzsche, suggests Ronald Hayman in this stimulating, provocative guide: just a shifting set of contradictory voices. Those envious contemporaries who smeared Nietzsche with the mark of madness came closer than the knew in characterizing a philosopher in whose thought ambivalence approximated to disintegration of the self.Yet while the nineteenth century’s coherent, consistent systems of certainty would come crashing down ingloriously a the very first touch of the twentieth, Nietzsche’s disjointed discourses survived – more modern, it seemed, than the moderns.Today his work seems more contemporary than ever, his various voices speaking compellingly to a sensibility for which paradox is the only truth, plurality the only consistency, fragmentation the only integrity. This enthralling guide reveals a new Nietzsche for a new, postmodern age.
