About this book

Following Nietzsche's call for a philosopher-physician and his own use of the bodily language of health and illness as tools to diagnose the ailments of the body politic, this book offers a reconstruction of the concept of political physiology in Nietzsche's thought, bridging gaps between Anglo-American, German and French schools of interpretation.

Reviews

'This is an important and highly innovative appreciation of Nietzsche which offers fresh and arresting insights into both core and neglected aspects of his philosophy. It makes central to Nietzsche's project the thought of eternal return and provides a novel interpretation of it as the cornerstone of his political ontology. The author convincingly argues that Nietzsche's celebrated affirmation of life needs to be translated into a political vision for humankind. Highly recommended.' - Keith Ansell-Pearson, Professor of Philosophy, University of Warwick
