$55.00

A reappraisal of Ecce Homo and The Antichrist within Nietzsche's oeuvre.

Nietzsche's Legacy takes on the most challenging and misunderstood works in Nietzsche's oeuvre to illuminate his view of what a philosopher is and what constitutes a philosophic life. Interpreting Ecce Homo and The Antichrist as twin books meant to replace the abandoned Will to Power project, Heinrich Meier recovers them from the stigma of Nietzsche's late mental collapse, showing that these works are, above all, a lucid self-assessment. The carefully written pair contains both the highest affirmation--the Yes of the "revaluation of all values"--and the most resolute negation--the No to Christianity. How the Yes and the No go together, how the relation between nature and politics is to be determined, how Nietzsche's intention is governing the political-philosophical double-face: this is the subject of Nietzsche's Legacy, which opens up a new understanding of Nietzsche's philosophy as a whole.
