Reviews

'This is a fine volume with a very impressive range, featuring genuinely new and, in some cases, provocative lines of interpretation. It will make an incisive contribution to discussion of this important text.' Duncan Large, Swansea University
'This collection is a showcase for some of the best contemporary scholarship on the Genealogy of Morality, and will prove invaluable to both scholars of Nietzsche as well as moral philosophers with an interest in moral psychology. Taken together, these articles make an excellent argument for the vitality, modernity, and urgency of Nietzsche's genealogical challenge to morality.' Judith Norman, Trinity University
