From the Publisher
Excerpt The human soul, indirectly, known through its observable patterns of "instinctual" behavior as an invisible network of drives and impulses, is a capacitor that amorally discharges its native endowment of vitality, which Nietzsche calls "will." The pervasive, transpersonal agency that enables animate entities as capacitors, suffusing them with vitality, is Life, which itself comprises all organic differentiations of the primordial will to power. The individual is therefore nothing more than an artificially designated--albeit functional--configuration of will to power.
Editors Note This is the first book-length treatment of the unique nature and development of Nietzsche's post-Zarathustran political philosophy. This later political philosophy is set in the context of the critique of modernity that Nietzsche advances in the years 1885-1888.
Editors Note 2 This is the first book-length treatment of the unique nature and development of Nietzsche's post-Zarathustran political philosophy. This later political philosophy is set in the context of the critique of modernity that Nietzsche advances in the years 1885-1888, in such texts as Beyond Good and Evil, On the Genealogy of Morals, Twilight of the Idols, The Antichrist, The Case of Wagner, and Ecce Homo. Daniel Conway has written a powerful book about Nietzsche's own appreciation of the limitations of both his writing style and of his famous prophetic "stance".
