FRIEDRICH Nietzsche, despite being one of the world's most brilliant and influential philosophers, is still grossly misrepresented by political theoreticians and court academics alike. His ideas, which are notoriously hard-hitting and uncompromising, have often been used to justify or legitimise anything from capitalist exploitation and social-darwinism right through to psychopathic behaviour and totalitarianism. The articles contained in this new study examine his thought in relation to Morality, the Soul, Dionysianism, Judeo-Christianity, and Nietzschean-Darwinian Pseudosynthesis. The text also takes a look at how Nietzsche's vision can be applied in the twenty-first century and outlines the development of his life and work in general. Contributors include Troy Southgate, Michael Walker, K.R. Bolton, Keith Preston, Gwendolyn Toynton, Mariella Shearer, Mike Kleen and Thomas Dalton.
