Synopsis

This work offers a concise and historicized analysis of the development of Nietzsche's thought on the subject of tragedy. In this important and hugely profound book, Nuno Nabais, a leading figure in Nietzsche Studies, provides a cogent and comprehensive survey of the development of Nietzsche's thought on the subject of tragedy and as such examines the central problems of Nietzsche's philosophy. The book offers an extensive reconstruction of the subject of tragedy and the problem of the sublime in aesthetics that brings to the fore the central role of Nietzsche's work in this key area of philosophy. Nabais explores the differences between the theory of the sublime in the thought of Nietzsche, Kant, Fichte and Schopenhauer and in this way presents an important introduction to Nietzsche's position in the philosophical tradition. In particular, Nabais concentrates on the problem of individuality and the conception of necessity in Nietzsche's thought. Nabais displays an enviable knowledge of Nietzsche's work and his position in the philosophical tradition. His reading of Nietzsche is thorough and highly original.

This is an important book for students and academics of Nietzsche Studies and in the areas of Aesthetics, Ethics and Epistemology.
