Nietzsche's On the Genealogy of Morals: Critical Essays
(Rowman; Littlefield, 2006)
Experts in ethics, epistemology, philosophy of mind, political theory, aesthetics, history, critical theory, and hermeneutics bring to light the best philosophical scholarship produced on what is arguably Friedrich Nietzsche's most rewarding but more challenging text. Comprising essays that were commissioned specifically for the volume as well as essays revised and edited by their authors, this collection showcases definitive works that have shaped studies of Nietzsche alongside new works of interest to students and experts alike. Sections are devoted to the general topic of genealogy, numerous essays on specific passages, applications of genealogy in later thinkers, and the import of Nietzsche's Genealogy in contemporary politics, ethics, and aesthetics. A lengthy introduction, annotated bibliography, and index make this an extremely useful guide for the classroom and advanced research. Christa Davis Acampora is an associate professor of philosophy at Hunter College and The Graduate Center.
