A Frenzied Look

This study challenges the common view that Nietzsche passed through several discrete periods of thought, each based on a different set of values, and that his work can best be understood as a collection of isolated insights. Through close textual analysis, Robert John Ackermann exposes the underlying unity and consistency in Nietzsche's thought that has long been overlooked.

About the Author

Robert John Ackermann, professor of philosophy at the University of Massachusetts, Amherst, is the author of nine books, including The Philosophy of Karl Popper and Data, Instruments, and Theory


"Ackermann is to be highly commended for this clearly written introduction to Nietzsche. Beginning with The Birth of Tragedy's vision of Greece before Socrates, Ackermann's thesis is that the Nietzsche's thought builds to a coherent whole in Untimely Meditations, the Gay Science, Thus Spake Zarathustra, Beyond Good and Evil, On the Genealology of Morals, and Human, All too Human. In this vision of pre-Socratic Greece, Ackermann finds to Nietzsches: one, 'content to attack the prevailing value tables of this time,' the other, 'trying to produce progressive new value tables.' . . . With references to other recent commentators, the ten chapters work out the second Nietzsche's style, notions of morality, society, women, and power. . . . Highly recommended."—Choice
