Janaway on Nietzsche, Genealogy, and Naturalism: A Critical Review
20 Pages Posted: 21 May 2008
This is a review essay (forthcoming in Notre Dame Philosophical Reviews) discussing Christopher Janaway's book "Beyond Selfessness: Reading Nietzsche's 'Genealogy'" (OUP, 2007). Particular attention is given to the question of Nietzsche's style, and the relationship between his philosophical positions and his therapeutic objectives; to Janaway's critique of my account of Nietzsche's naturalism; and to Nietzsche's conception of agency and the meaning of the image (from GM II:2) of "the sovereign individual."
Keywords: Nietzsche, naturalism, genealogy, free will
