Friedrich Wilhelm Nietzsche 1844-1900â€˜God is deadâ€™, announced Nietzsche â€“ before going on to abolish himself. For there is no Nietzsche, suggests Ronald Hayman in this stimulating, provocative guide: just a shifting set of contradictory voices. Those envious contemporaries who smeared Nietzsche with the mark of madness came closer than the knew in characterizing a philosopher in whose thought ambivalence approximated to disintegration of the self.Yet while the nineteenth centuryâ€™s coherent, consistent systems of certainty would come crashing down ingloriously a the very first touch of the twentieth, Nietzscheâ€™s disjointed discourses survived â€“ more modern, it seemed, than the moderns.Today his work seems more contemporary than ever, his various voices speaking compellingly to a sensibility for which paradox is the only truth, plurality the only consistency, fragmentation the only integrity. This enthralling guide reveals a new Nietzsche for a new, postmodern age.
