About this title

Synopsis:

From the early 1870s through the 1880s, language, consciousness, and the body stood as cornerstones of the philosophical project that culminated in Nietzsche's anthropology of knowledge. Asserting both the timeliness and lasting value of Nietzsche's writings during this period, Emden argues that they were not based on a specific understanding of the philosophy of language or a specific conception of truth but were instead shaped by his interest in the theory of knowledge, philological scholarship, and contemporary life sciences. Leveraging a truly astounding command of eighteenth- and nineteenth-century scientific and philological texts, Emden is able to situate Nietzsche's writings on language and rhetoric within their wider historical context, allowing him to distill the content of Nietzsche's writing from the form of his radical presentation. In the process, Emden reveals Nietzsche as more timely and less outrageous than he is widely thought to be, appearing instead as a powerful thinker interested in understanding the philosophical import of the heady scientific developments of his day. Finally, drawing on much previously unpublished and undiscussed Nietzsche material, Emden

From the Back Cover:

"This book offers an encyclopedic coverage of the historical sources of Nietzsche's views on language, thought, and history. Displaying a comprehensive knowledge of many little-known sources, particularly in rhetoric, Emden does an excellent job in detailing Nietzsche's reading on these topics, and showing how the views in these sources are related to Nietzsche's own thinking. This impressive scholarship makes the book a very useful addition to our understanding of Nietzsche." (John Richardson, New York University)

"Christian Emden has produced an intelligent and fascinating work. He paints a Nietzsche who was immersed in the intellectual world of the late nineteenth century, a world where typewriters transformed writing and scientific research on human physiology and the nervous system undermined philosophical notions of the self. This is a major contribution to Nietzsche studies." (Peter C. Caldwell, Rice University)
