By Michael Ure
Nietzsche's remedy examines Nietzsche's center works with a view to problem these perspectives that push aside his notion of self-cultivation as a symptom of unadulterated narcissism. It goals to strengthen a much more balanced and subtle belief of his inspiration of self-cultivation via re-examining the a lot overlooked free-spirit trilogy of Human, All Too Human, first light, and The homosexual technology. Contra Nietzsche's critics, it argues that the type of self-cultivation that attracts at the version of Hellenistic and Roman Stoic philosophical therapeia. It means that he renovates this healing culture via his personal serious, psychoanalytic insights into narcissism and its ameliorations. It reconstructs Nietzsche's ethics of self-cultivation by way of his mental research of the pathological signs of narcissism and its fit or confident differences. In charting Nietzsche's direction from pathological narcissism to mature individualism, Nietzsche's remedy unpacks the philosophical and mental foundation of his critique of Rousseau and Schopenhauer's ethics of pitié/Mitleid, his use and research of comedy and humor in his serious, deflationary remedy of the illness of omnipotence, and his exploration of the belief of friendship as a good counterpoint to broken different types of intersubjectivity.
I can't compliment this e-book hugely adequate. It bargains a collection of wealthy insights into the texts of Nietzsche's unduly ignored 'middle interval' and returns us to the congenial Nietzsche who's a superb psychologist of the pathologies of human self-importance and wounded narcissism and a thinker of modesty and probity. His ebook succeeds in taking us past the aestheticist clichés that experience impaired our reception and appreciation of Nietzsche lately. Michael Ure is a hugely capable and sophisticated reader of Nietzsche who has clean issues to assert on Nietzsche's relation to Stoicism and psychoanalysis and on Nietzsche's use of the ironic and the comedian. The publication advantages a large readership and i'm convinced that it'll encourage a massive renewal of curiosity within the heart interval texts either by way of pedagogy and scholarship.

Fresh views on Nietzsche have gotten more and more not easy to discover, yet during this publication Michael Ure opens up a few new and illuminating angles by means of taking him heavily as a philosophical therapist. Tracing major connections with the Stoics prior to him and Freud and Foucault after, Nietzsche's remedy exhibits its topic to be a refined and profound practitioner of the tricky paintings of self-cultivation.

This is a smart, humane, and very attention-grabbing paintings. Having mentioned the influential and significant paintings of Nehamas and Foucault on Nietzsche, Michael Ure bargains a persuasive and insightful Freudian interpreting of Nietzsche's center works. Contending that Nietzsche drew seriously on old conceptions of philosophy as a healing perform whose genuine worth is to be present in its results at the philosopher's existence outdoor his or her writings, Ure explores Nietzsche's mental insights into narcissism, subjecting melancholia, revenge and pity to evaluations which permit the reader to come back towards self-knowledge. Elegantly and economically written, and finishing with a dialogue of Nietzsche's notion of friendship, the final impression of this booklet isn't really easily that of enriching our figuring out of Nietzsche, but in addition that of providing a tonic influence now not frequently to be present in modern philosophy.
