Routledge Library Editions: Friedrich Nietzs Break-Out from the Crystal Palace The Anarcho-Psychological Critique: Stirner, Nietzsche, Dostoevsky John Carroll Before Marcuse and Laing, before Heidegger and Sartre, even before Freud, the way was prepared for the anarcho-psychological critique of economic man, of all codes of ideology or absolute morality, and of scientific habits of mind. First published in 1974, this title traces this philosophical tradition to its roots in the nineteenth century, to the figures of Stirner, Nietzsche and Dostoevsky, and to their psychological demolition of the two alternative axes of social theory and practice, a critique which today reads more pertinently than ever, and remains unanswered. To understand this critique is crucial for an age which has shown a mounting revulsion at the consequences of the Crystal Palace, symbol at once of technologico-industrial progress and its rationalist-scientist ideology, an age whose imaginative preoccupations have telescoped onto the individual, and whose interest has switched from the social realm to that of anarchic, inner, ’psychological man’. Selected Contents: Part 1: Introduction: Liberal-Rationalism and the Progress Model Part 2: The Critique of Ideology 1. The origins of Anarcho-Psychology 2. The antichrist 3. The Immoralist 4.

Authenticity and Learning Nietzsche’s Educational Philosophy David Cooper, University of Durham, UK David E. Cooper elucidates Nietzsche’s educational views in detail, in a form that will be of value to educationalists as well as philosophers. In this title, first published in 1983, he shows how these views relate to the rest of Nietzsche’s work, and to modern European and Anglo-Saxon philosophical concerns. For Nietzsche, the purpose of true education was to produce creative individuals who take responsibility for their lives, beliefs and values. His ideal was human authenticity. David E. Cooper sets Nietzsche’s critique against the background of nineteenth-century German culture, yet is concerned at the same time to emphasize its bearing upon recent educational thought and policy. Selected Contents: 1. Authenticity 2. ’Breadwinners’ and ’Old Maids’ 3. Nature and Technicism 4. Life and Liberal Education 5. Nietzsche’s Philosophy of Truth 6. Genealogy, Values and the Teaching of Morality 7. The Justification of Society 8. The Higher Breeding of Man December 2009: 216x138: 176pp Hb: 978-0-415-56221-8: £65.00 US $113.00

Nietzsche, Wagner and the Philosophy of Pessimism Roger Hollinrake Nietzsche’s relationship with Wagner has long been a source of controversy and has given rise to a number of important studies, including this major breakthrough in Nietzsche scholarship, first published in 1982. In this work Hollinrake contends that the nature and extent of the anti-Wagnerian pastiche and polemic in Thus Spake Zarathustra is arguably the most important factor in the association between the two. Thus Wagner, as the purveyor of a particular brand of Schopenhauerian pessimism, is here revealed as one of the principle sources—and targets—of Zarathustra. Whilst addressed primarily to students of German Literature, this book will also be of interest to musicians, philosophers and students of the history of culture and ideas. Selected Contents: Part 1: Zarathustra and Der Ring 1. Der Ring des Nibelungen 2. Zarathustra’s Going Down 3. Schopenhauer and Der Ring 4. Two Notes on Der Ring 5. The Convalescent 6. Zarathustra’s Rondelay 7. Zarathustra’s Great Noon 8. Nietzsche’s Affirmation: Summary Part 2: Zarathustra and Parsifal 9. Parsifal 10. Zarathustra’s Temptation 11. The Cry of Distress 12.

Nietzsche: Imagery and Thought A collection of Essays Edited by Malcolm Pasley The central theme of this collection of essays, first published in 1978, is the basic tension in Nietzsche, and so in his work, between the urge to weave a satisfying web out of reality and the equally strong compulsion to expose its painful truths. The book aims to stress, not to play down, the embarassing and fruitful fact that he cannot be neatly pigeonholed either as a literary figure or as a professional philosopher. The book meets a long-felt need for a study in English of both the literary and the philosophical aspects of Nietzsche’s work, based on his authentic texts, and will be welcomed by all students of modern European thought and Literature. Selected Contents: 1. Nietzsche: Art and Intellectual Enquiry 2. Nietzsche’s Conception of Truth 3. Nietzsche and the Idea of Metaphor 4. Nietzsche’s Masks 5. Nietzsche and the Imagery of Height 6. Nietzsche’s Use of Medical Terms 7. Nietzsche’s Animals: Idea, Image and Influence 8. English Writers and Nietzsche December 2009: 216x138: 276pp Hb: 978-0-415-56224-9: £70.00 US $122.00
