...this is a wonderful book... (CHOICE)
...this particular work will benefit anyone, especially the novice, who desires to understand and appreciate his philosophy. (American Reference Books Annual)
This dictionary is unusual since it not only focuses on Nietzsche's writings and main ideas but also upon the precursors who influenced him and on his successors. A major strength is that this dictionary includes women who stand in Nietzsche's philosophical heritage. A short but comprehensive dictionary that anyone interested in Nietzsche will find helpful. (Religious Studies Review)
