By Michael Ure
Nietzsche's treatment examines Nietzsche's center works so that it will problem these perspectives that push aside his perception of self-cultivation as a symptom of unadulterated narcissism. It goals to increase a much more balanced and subtle notion of his suggestion of self-cultivation via re-examining the a lot ignored free-spirit trilogy of Human, All Too Human, dawn, and The homosexual technological know-how. Contra Nietzsche's critics, it argues that the type of self-cultivation that pulls at the version of Hellenistic and Roman Stoic philosophical therapeia. It means that he renovates this healing culture via his personal severe, psychoanalytic insights into narcissism and its variations. It reconstructs Nietzsche's ethics of self-cultivation when it comes to his mental research of the pathological indicators of narcissism and its fit or optimistic modifications. In charting Nietzsche's path from pathological narcissism to mature individualism, Nietzsche's treatment unpacks the philosophical and mental foundation of his critique of Rousseau and Schopenhauer's ethics of pitié/Mitleid, his use and research of comedy and humor in his severe, deflationary therapy of the illness of omnipotence, and his exploration of the assumption of friendship as a favorable counterpoint to broken sorts of intersubjectivity.
I can't compliment this e-book hugely sufficient. It deals a collection of wealthy insights into the texts of Nietzsche's unduly missed 'middle interval' and returns us to the congenial Nietzsche who's a good psychologist of the pathologies of human vainness and wounded narcissism and a thinker of modesty and probity. His e-book succeeds in taking us past the aestheticist clichés that experience impaired our reception and appreciation of Nietzsche lately. Michael Ure is a hugely capable and sophisticated reader of Nietzsche who has clean issues to claim on Nietzsche's relation to Stoicism and psychoanalysis and on Nietzsche's use of the ironic and the comedian. The publication advantages a large readership and i'm convinced that it'll motivate an important renewal of curiosity within the heart interval texts either when it comes to pedagogy and scholarship.

Fresh views on Nietzsche have gotten more and more difficult to discover, yet during this publication Michael Ure opens up a few new and illuminating angles through taking him heavily as a philosophical therapist. Tracing major connections with the Stoics sooner than him and Freud and Foucault after, Nietzsche's treatment exhibits its topic to be a sophisticated and profound practitioner of the tricky paintings of self-cultivation.

This is a sensible, humane, and intensely fascinating paintings. Having mentioned the influential and demanding paintings of Nehamas and Foucault on Nietzsche, Michael Ure deals a persuasive and insightful Freudian examining of Nietzsche's heart works. Contending that Nietzsche drew seriously on old conceptions of philosophy as a healing perform whose genuine price is to be present in its results at the philosopher's lifestyles outdoors his or her writings, Ure explores Nietzsche's mental insights into narcissism, subjecting melancholia, revenge and pity to opinions which allow the reader to come back toward self-knowledge. Elegantly and economically written, and finishing with a dialogue of Nietzsche's belief of friendship, the final impact of this publication isn't easily that of enriching our realizing of Nietzsche, but in addition that of offering a tonic impression now not often to be present in modern philosophy.
