About this book

This book proposes that Nietzsche should be viewed as an economic thinker to rank alongside Marx. Peter Sedgwick shows how Nietzsche views economy as the basic condition under which the 'human animal' developed. Economy, Nietzsche argues, endowed us with futurity, and is a defining aspect of human behaviour.

Reviews

'Nietzsche's Economy is a complete and effective exploration of the economic motif at work throughout Nietzsche's writings. Not only is the book original in scope and in treatment, it opens a truly refreshing set of possibilities to the Nietzsche scholar, and to us learners of-and actors in-modernity....a welcome contribution to the task of rejuvenating the Nietzsche scholarship.' - Nietzsche Circle
