Nietzsche's Dangerous Game

Philosophy in the Twilight of the Idols

This is the first book-length treatment of the unique nature and development of Nietzsche's post-Zarathustran political philosophy. This later political philosophy is set in the context of the critique of modernity that Nietzsche advances in the years 1885-1888, in such texts as Beyond Good and Evil, On the Genealogy of Morals, Twilight of the Idols, The Antichrist, The Case of Wagner, and Ecce Homo. Daniel Conway has written a powerful book about Nietzsche's own appreciation of the limitations of both his writing style and of his famous prophetic "stance".


"Daniel W. Conway has written an important book that warrants sreious attention from both Nietzsche scholars and the broader scholarly community interested in Nietzsche's critique of modernity." Aln D. Schrift, Philosophy in Review
