Nietzsche, Biology and Metaphor

Gregory Moore

This examine explores the German philosopher's reaction to the highbrow debates sparked through the ebook of Charles Darwin's foundation of Species. by way of studying the abundance of organic metaphors in Nietzsche's writings, Gregory Moore questions his contemporary acceptance as an eminently subversive and submit glossy philosopher. The ebook analyzes key topics of Nietzsche's thought--his critique of morality, his philosophy of artwork and the Übermensch--in the sunshine of the idea of evolution, the nineteenth-century experience of decadence and the increase of anti-Semitism.
