about this item
This study provides an interpretation of Nietzsche’s philosophy in the context of 19th century philosophy of mind and cognition. It explains Nietzsche’s notion of truth; his epistemology; his notions of the split and fragmented subject, of master, slave, and priest; furthermore, it offers a new view on the enigmatic “eternal recurrence”. It also shows how aspects of Nietzsche’s thinking can be read as a sophisticated critique of ideology.
