Nietzsche's Gay Science is one of his most remarkable, important, and famous works. Moreover, it contains all of his main philosophical themes and is arguably indispensable for understanding Nietzsche's philosophy. Langer's Nietzsche's Gay Science: Dancing Coherence is the first book that helps the reader grapple with the complexity of The Gay Science in its entirety. In a clear, engaging, and very accessible manner Langer provides a detailed, sequential reading of The Gay Science. She explains the interconnectedness of its seemingly unrelated sections and illuminates its difficulties. Throughout she provides critical commentary and detailed background information. A native German speaker, Langer also draws attention to various problems in Kaufmann's translation of The Gay Science and provides translation corrections.
