Synopsis: This book represents the first English translation of Nikos Kazantzakis's 1909 dissertation on Friedrich Nietzsche's political and legal philosophy. Before Kazantzakis became one of the best-known modern Greek writers, he was an avid student of Nietzsche's thought, discovering Nietzsche while studying law in Paris from 1907 to 1909. This powerful assessment of Nietzsche's radical political thought is translated here from a restored and authentic recent edition of the original. Its deep insights are unencumbered by the encrustations that generations of Nietzsche's admirers and detractors have deposed on the original Nietzschean corpus. The book also offers a revealing glimpse into the formative stage of Kazantzakis's thought.
Review: "Thanks to the efforts of the translator, Kazantzakis's bold, appreciative interpretation of Nietzsche is now available to Anglophone readers. While other figures from the period offered their thoughts on Nietzsche, none approaches the stature and genius of Kazantzakis. This book opens a unique window onto the European intellectual scene at the beginning of the twentieth century."
