Summary:
"This challenging new reading of Nietzsche counters the highly misleading interpretation of post-modern commentators, largely under the influence of Derrida. In this powerful critique, the author reconstructs Nietzsche's relationship to Schopenhauer and Heidegger, and argues that Nietzsche was not, as the postmodernists contend, a relativist or pluralist, but that he cultivated an existential appreciation of the truth."--Bloomsbury Publishing
