Summary

Summary

This introduction to Nietzsche's thought is geared to those who approach his work with grave skepticism. Belliotti begins each chapter with a brief exposition of a broad theme in Nietzsche's work, raising important questions of interpretation. He then turns the discussion into a dialogue between two characters who, in the topics they address, exemplify rather than merely explain Nietzsche's broad themes. In this manner, Stalking Nietzsche focuses on the connection between philosophy and living: How can reading Nietzsche change one's life? What links are there between accepting Nietzsche's broad philosophical themes and practical conduct? And what lessons, if any, can reading Nietzsche teach us about the human condition?
