About this book

The first book-length treatment of James Joyce's work through the lens of Friedrich Nietzsche's thought, Slote argues that the range of styles Joyce deploys has an ethical dimension. This intersection raises questions of epistemology, aesthetics, and the construction of the 'Modern' and will appeal to literary and philosophy scholars.

Reviews

"In his strong, compact and compelling book, Sam Slote offers more than a book about the 'ethics of style' in Joyce and Nietzsche, much more than a study of the influence of Nietzsche - he revisits and reassesses Joyce's major works through Nietzschean questions, with help from Derrida, Wittgenstein and Rorty. He proves that Molly Bloom was indeed an Ueber-woman, and that there is something like a Gay Science in Finnegans Wake. This superb and lively book will attract more than Joyce specialists: it consistently poses essential questions about the politics of style and the need for new values combining art and life." - Jean-Michel Rabaté, Professor of English, University of Pennsylvania, USA

"Deeply informed and wide in its range of reference, Sam Slote's new book reveals the variety of filiations between Nietzsche and Joyce. In doing so, it not only sheds light on many aspects of Joyce's major works, but also inspires us to read Nietzsche anew - and differently." - Philip Kitcher, John Dewey Professor of Philosophy, Columbia University, USA
