Cover for WHITE: Nietzsche and the Problem of Sovereignty

Nietzsche and the Problem of Sovereignty

From The Birth of Tragedy on, Nietzsche worked to comprehend the nature of the individual. Richard White shows how Nietzsche was inspired and guided by the question of personal "sovereignty" and how through his writings he sought to provoke the very sovereignty he described. White argues that Nietzsche is a philosopher our contemporary age must therefore come to understand if we are ever to secure a genuinely meaningful direction for the future. Profoundly relevant to our era, Nietzsche's philosophy addresses a version of individuality that allows us to move beyond the self-dispossession of mass society and the alternative of selfish individualism--to fully understand how one becomes what one is.

A volume in the International Nietzsche Studies series, edited by Richard Schacht
