In Nietzsche as Philosopher, Arthur Danto provides an immensely valuable reassessment of this nineteenth-century thinker. By examining all of Nietzsche's writing--on knowledge, language, and philosophical psychology, as well as morality--Danto locates and defines the enduring system and argument behind the brilliant fragmented polemics. He reveals surprising ways in which Nietzsche anticipated moves in contemporary analytic philosophy.
