Dead Letters to Nietzsche, or the Necromantic Art of Reading Philosophy, Hardback Book

Dead Letters to Nietzsche, or the Necromantic Art of Reading Philosophy Hardback

Part of the Series In Continental Thought series

Description

Dead Letters to Nietzsche examines how writing shapes subjectivity through the example of Nietzsche's reception by his readers, including Stanley Rosen, David Farrell Krell, Georges Bataille, Laurence Lampert, Pierre Klossowski, and Sarah Kofman.

More precisely, Joanne Faulkner finds that the personal identification that these readers form with Nietzsche's texts is an enactment of the kind of identity formation described in Lacanian and Kleinian psychoanalysis.

This investment of their subjectivity guides their understanding of Nietzsche's project, the revaluation of values. Not only does this work make a provocative contribution to Nietzsche scholarship, but it also opens in an original way broader philosophical questions about how readers come to be invested in a philosophical project and how such investment alters their subjectivity.
