Editorial Reviews

"Abbey's aim to defend the distinctiveness, as well as the " superior worth," of this neglected phase of Nietzsche's development, and thereby take the first steps toward a "genealogical inquiry" into the "choices Nietzsche made across the course of his writing career"(p.156). Abbey initiatesthis inquiry in a spirit of competent cross-examination. Her approach is logical, her Nietzsche liberal in outlook...I Profiled from Abbey's synthesis of themes in the middle writings and since I have spent more time with Nietzsche's later works, I value the correction she seeks in Nietzschescholarship. My favorite chapters-"Equal Among Firsts" and "We Children of the Enlightened"--concern friendship and science. The friendship chapter exhibits Nietzsche's genuine insight on this classical theme, and it is strengthened by its use of his letters."-- The Review of Metaphysics
