The New Nietzsche: Contemporary Styles of Interpretation
David B. Allison
MIT Press, 1977 - Philosophy - 274 pages
The New Nietzsche offers an important sampling of the rereadings of FriedrichNietzche's work that have contributed greatly to the development of contemporary Europeanphilosophy.The fifteen essays, written by such eminent scholars as Derrida, Heidegger, Deleuze,Klossowski, and Blanchot, focus on the Nietzschean concepts of the Will to Power, the Overman, andthe Eternal Return, discuss Nietzsche's style, and deal with the religious implications of hisideas. Taken together they provide an indispensable foil to the interpretations available in mostcurrent American writing.Contents: "Nietzsche and Metaphysical Language," Michel Haar; "The Will toPower," Alphonso Lingis; "Who is Nietzsches Zarathustra?"

David B. Allison, Editor (1977). The New Nietzsche: Contemporary Styles of Interpretation. Dell Publishing Company: New York. 274 pages.
Allison’s book contains 16 essays (including the introduction) written by 14 authors. 12 of the essays are translated from the French, including several translated specifically for this collection. The essays are arranged under three headings. The six essays in Part I (‘Main themes: Will to Power, Overman, Eternal Return’) reads much like a Festshrift for Zarathustra’s disciples. In these essays the rationales and reasonableness of Nietzsche's core ideas are unpacked and explained, usually with an underlying positive bias. In the second Part (‘Oblique Entry’) the critics pluck somewhat at Nietzsche's ideas, but the primary emphasis is locating Nietzsche within the philosophical enterprise. The final three essays (‘Part III- Transfigurations) the similarities and contrasts between classical religious ideas of beatitude and salvation and Nietzsche's ideas of the eternal recurrence are presented in a more neutral fashion.
I have commented upon what seems to me an explicit bias in the selections because they seem important in understanding both what the book does and does not do. The essays do a superb job of supplying some of the missing steps and implicit epistemological commitments in Nietzsche's thought and ideas. For a more systematic and critical presentation of Nietzsche's thought one needs to go elsewhere. By and large, the essays do not examine in depth the connection between Nietzsche's life and thought.
