Summary "In Nietzsche & the Political, Daniel W. Conway takes Nietzsche seriously as a political thinker. Unlike other writers on the subject, Conway neither idolizes not demonizes. He carefully explores the consequences of Nietzsche's critique of modernity for his political thought from his earliest writings through to his mature work. Conway's clear and even-handed analysis is free from the obfuscatory jargon often associated with Nietzsche scholarship." "Nietzsche & the Political is a comprehensive introduction to Nietzsche's political thought. It also offers a thorough survey of Nietzsche's political legacy, including his influence on such seminal thinkers as Foucault and Habermas and his continuing importance to contemporary liberalism and feminist theory. It will be required reading for students of Nietzsche in philosophy, politics and sociology."--Jacket.
