Jesús Conill. NIETZSCHE FRENTE A HABERMAS. Genealogías de la razón

Jesús Conill

Nietzsche frente a Habermas. Genealogías de la razón.


     El libro desvela una apasionante confrontación: la que se produce entre Nietzsche y Habermas, entre la genealogía de la razón corporal y la de la razón comunicativa. En su última etapa Habermas descubre explícitamente que en los orígenes de la razón se encuentra la imaginación religiosa y que las huellas de lo sagrado perduran hasta en la razón moderna, cuyo déficit motivacional reclama los vínculos religiosos.

     Tanto Nietzsche como Habermas reconstruyen la gestación histórica de la razón a partir de la experiencia vital y su progreso mediante procesos de aprendizaje, que han conducido a una religión racionalizada en la perspectiva de Habermas y a una experiencia trágica en el diagnóstico cultural de Nietzsche.

     El principal déficit de Habermas consiste en no haber planteado la auténtica encrucijada entre Kant y Nietzsche. Porque la genealogía nietzscheana ofrece una alternativa a la racionalización de los contenidos religiosos, en especial del cristianismo, a partir de la experiencia trágica del nihilismo contemporáneo.

     ¿Qué tipo de hombre hay que “criar” para superar la “muerte de Dios” y el falso “progreso” de la democratización gregaria? ¿Basta encontrar el sentido de la vida mediante la racionalización de las tradiciones religiosas? ¿O es necesario asumir poéticamente la experiencia vital de que siempre será posible un cristianismo trágico?

Friedrich Nietzsche — Unpublished Fragments from the Period of Human, All Too Human I (Winter 1874/75–Winter 1877/78)

Translated, with an Afterword, by Gary Handwerk, The Complete Works of Friedrich Nietzsche, Vol. 12


     This volume in The Complete Works presents the first English translations of Nietzsche’s unpublished notebooks from Winter 1874/1875 through 1878, the period in which he developed the mixed aphoristic-essayistic mode that continued across the rest of his career. These notebooks comprise a range of different materials, including early drafts and near-final versions of aphorisms that would appear in both volumes of Human, All Too Human. Additionally, there are extensive notes for a never-completed Unfashionable Observation that was to be titled « We Philologists », early drafts for the final sections of « Richard Wagner in Bayreuth », plans for other possible publications, and detailed reading notes on philologists, philosophers, and historians of his era, including Friedrich August Wolf, Eugen Dühring, and Jacob Burckhardt.

     Through this volume, readers gain insight into Nietzsche’s emerging sense of himself as a composer of complexly orchestrated, stylistically innovative philosophical meditations—influenced by, but moving well beyond, the modes used by aphoristic precursors such as Goethe, La Rochefoucauld, Vauvenargues, and Schopenhauer. Further, these notebooks allow readers to trace more closely Nietzsche’s development of ideas that remain central to his mature philosophy, such as the contrast between free and constrained spirits, the interplay of national, supra-national, and personal identities, and the cultural centrality of the process of Bildungas formation, education, and cultivation.

     With this latest book in the series, Stanford continues its English-language publication of the famed Colli-Montinari edition of Nietzsche’s complete works, which include the philosopher’s notebooks and early unpublished writings. Scrupulously edited so as to establish a new standard for the field, each volume includes an Afterword that presents and contextualizes the material it contains.

THE COMPLETE WORKS OF FRIEDRICH NIETZSCHE, Vol. 9, edited by Alan D. Schrift, Stanford University Press

Friedrich Nietzsche — The Case of Wagner / Twilight of the Idols / The Antichrist / Ecce Homo / Dionysus Dithyrambs / Nietzsche Contra Wagner

Translated by Adrian Del Caro, Carol Diethe, Duncan Large, George H. Leiner, Paul S. Loeb, Alan D. Schrift, David F. Tinsley, and Mirko Wittwar, The Complete Works of Friedrich Nietzsche, vol. 9


The year 1888 marked the last year of Friedrich Nietzsche’s intellectual career and the culmination of his philosophical development. In that final productive year, he worked on six books, all of which are now, for the first time, presented in English in a single volume. Together these new translations provide a fundamental and complete introduction to Nietzsche’s mature thought and to the virtuosity and versatility of his most fully developed style.

The writings included here have a bold, sometimes radical tone that can be connected to Nietzsche’s rising profile and growing confidence. In The Antichrist, we are offered an extended critique of Christianity and Christian morality alongside blunt diagnoses of contemporary Europe’s cultural decadence. In Dionysus Dithyrambs we are presented with his only work composed exclusively of poetry, and in Twilight of the Idols we find a succinct summary of his mature philosophical views. At times the works are also openly personal, as in The Case of Wagner, which presents Nietzsche’s attempt to settle accounts with his former close friend, German composer Richard Wagner, and in his provocative autobiography, Ecce Homo, which sees Nietzsche taking stock of his past and future while also reflecting on many of his earlier texts.

Scrupulously edited, this critical volume also includes commentary by esteemed Nietzsche scholar Andreas Urs Sommer. Through this new collection, students and scholars are given an essential introduction to Nietzsche’s late thought.

Keith Ansell-Pearson, Rebecca Bamford.

Nietzsche’s Dawn: Philosophy, Ethics, and the Passion of Knowledge

   Published in 1881, Dawn: Thoughts on the Presumptions of Morality (sometimes translated as Daybreak) was written at a turning point in Nietzsche’s intellectual life and marks a significant departure from the German philosophical tradition of the nineteenth century. Though groundbreaking in many ways, Dawn remains the least studied text in Nietzsche’s body of work, but has experienced a resurgence of interest as trends in contemporary research have focused on Nietzsche’s naturalism and his futurism. In Nietzsche’s Dawn: Philosophy, Ethics, and the Passion of Knowledge, authors Keith Ansell-Pearson and Rebecca Bamford undertake a thorough analysis of the second installment in Nietzsche’s so-called free spirit trilogy.

   Nietzsche’s Dawn articulates Dawn’s nascent contributions to the signature doctrines of Nietzsche’s mature scholarship, and examines the continuing relevance of his critique of fear, superstition, and moral and religious fanaticism. Ansell-Pearson and Bamford highlight Dawn’s social-psychological insights and its critical reflections on traditional morality, making connections with recent scholarship on skepticism, ethical naturalism and experimentalism, and the art of living well. The volume opens with an introduction to Dawn and to reading Nietzsche’s work, surveying his literary and philosophical influences to give a full picture of Dawn’s cultural and ideological context. Later chapters address a wide range of topics relevant to Dawn, including presumptions of customary morality, hatred of the self, free-minded thinking, and the commitment to the pursuit of the passion of knowledge.

   Original and incisive, Nietzsche’s Dawn imaginatively explores one of Nietzsche’s most underappreciated major works, and is essential reading for scholars and interpreters of Nietzsche and his middle-period writings, as well as general readers with an interest in his life and thought.

Vanessa Lemm

Homo Natura. Nietzsche, Philosophical Anthropology and Biopolitics.



Nietzsche coins the enigmatic term homo natura to capture his understanding of the human being as a creature of nature and tasks philosophy with the renaturalisation of humanity.

Following Foucault’s critique of the human sciences, Vanessa Lemm discusses the reception of Nietzsche’s naturalism in philosophical anthropology, psychoanalysis and gender studies.

She offers an original reading of homo natura that brings back the ancient Greek idea of nature and sexuality as creative chaos and of the philosophical life as outspoken and embodied truth, perhaps best exemplified by the Cynics’ embrace of social and cultural transformation.

HUMAIN, TROP HUMAIN I. Traduction inédite, présentation et notes de Patrick Wotling

Friedrich Nietzsche – Humain, trop humain I

Traduction inédite, présentation et notes de Patrick Wotling

À sa parution en 1878, Humain, trop humain laisse les lecteurs perplexes : on n’y reconnaît pas l’auteur de La Naissance de la tragédie. Pourtant, la rupture entre les deux ouvrages n’est pas aussi radicale qu’on a voulu le penser. C’est bien plutôt un mouvement d’affirmation de soi, profond et déterminant, qui se manifeste dans ce nouveau livre. Libéré de ses influences passées, Nietzsche réinvestit ses interrogations sur un mode nouveau et, ce faisant, consolide sa propre manière de philosopher.

L’évolution la plus frappante est stylistique : Nietzsche adopte pour la première fois la forme aphoristique, conforme à sa pensée, anti-dogmatique, qui procède par essais, hypothèses, multiplication des points de vue. D’où un changement de méthodologie : à rebours de la tradition philosophique, il rejette les perspectives fixistes de la métaphysique et prône une logique interprétative. Se plaçant sur le terrain de la psychologie, il enquête sur les méandres de l’âme humaine, reconnaissant que tout ce qui se produit dans la réalité n’est pas entièrement imputable à la raison, mais bien davantage à des processus infra-conscients – instincts, pulsions, valeurs –, qui constituent le « trop humain » de l’humain.

HUMAIN, TROP HUMAIN II. Traduction inédite d’Éric Blondel, Ole Hansen-Løve, Théo Leydenbach

Friedrich Nietzsche – Humain, trop humain II

Traduction inédite d’Éric Blondel, Ole Hansen-Løve, Théo Leydenbach


Livre de la maturité, Humain, trop humain ouvre la deuxième période de la pensée nietzschéenne. Le philosophe a trouvé le style d’écriture qu’il n’abandonnera plus – la forme aphoristique – et l’objet qui l’occupera toujours – l’analyse des mœurs et de la culture.

Dans ce second volume, composé d’Opinions et sentences mêlées et du Voyageur et son ombre, Nietzsche aborde des sujets de tous ordres : l’enseignement, la mode, le christianisme, le châtiment, les Grecs… Au lieu de proposer un exposé dogmatique, il procède, tel le voyageur sans attaches, par essais et expérimentations. Mais derrière le caractère apparemment hétéroclite de l’œuvre, c’est bien à une étude des mœurs et, à travers elle, à une critique de la morale que Nietzsche s’emploie. Pour lui, en effet, la morale telle qu’elle s’est développée dans la tradition philosophique a masqué derrière les lumières de la raison ce qui est perçu comme une faiblesse : les pulsions, l’irrationnel, l’« ombre » en chacun de nous – ces choses injustement mises au rebut alors qu’elles constituent la réalité profonde de la vie et que Nietzsche appelle le « trop humain » de l’humain.

Wilson Frezzatti Jr

Nietzsche e a psicofisiologia francesa do século XIX.



       Dirigindo-se à França do século XIX, Wilson Frezzatti procura resgatar o itinerário que ligou filosofia, fisiologia e psicologia, ou seja, situar o ambiente e as teses que ampararam o surgimento de um estudo fisiopsicológico ou psicofisiológico em relação com o discurso filosófico daquele momento. Nessa perspectiva, o que Frezzatti mostra é que Nietzsche não se coloca na condição de um cientista ou seguidor das ideias de Ribot, mas na de alguém que empregou alguns conceitos psicológicos conforme suas necessidades filosóficas. Ademais, ao lado de semelhanças entre seu pensamento e o de Ribot, encontraremos diferenças que são cruciais para que o autor de Além de bem e mal mantenha sua independência filosófica e seu projeto de superação da metafísica e de elevação da cultura (a filosofia do porvir) […]. A construção da psicologia nietzschiana se faz contra a psicologia vigente, o que lhe dá um caráter antimetafísico, antimoral e antiidealista.

Andreas Urs Sommer

Was bleibt von Nietzsches Philosophie ?

    So geschäftig die internationale Nietzsche-Forschung auch ist, bleibt doch weithin unklar, was eigentlich gemeint ist, wenn wir von »Nietzsches Philosophie« sprechen. Handelt es sich um ein Gefüge von Lehrsätzen – Wille zur Macht, Ewige Wiederkunft des Gleichen, Übermensch? Wie sollen philosophisch interessierte Leserinnen und Leser damit umgehen, dass Nietzsche sich offensichtlich unentwegt selbst ins Wort fällt und jede doktrinale Festlegung verweigert? Ist das nur eine billige literarische Strategie, um das eigene Gefüge von Lehrsätzen interessanter zu machen? Oder handelt es sich vielmehr um den Versuch, den Glauben an Philosophie als Gefüge von Lehrsätzen grundsätzlich zu problematisieren? Vielleicht ist Nietzsches Philosophie etwas völlig Anderes: eine andere Praxis.

THE COMPLETE WORKS OF FRIEDRICH NIETZSCHE, Vol. 14 and Vol. 16, edited by Alan D. Schrift and Duncan Large, Stanford University Press

Friedrich Nietzsche – Unpublished Fragments (Spring 1885-Spring 1886)

Translated, with an Afterword, by Adrian Del Caro, The Complete Works of Friedrich Nietzsche, vol. 16



     This volume of The Complete Works provides the first English translation of all Nietzsche’s unpublished notes from April 1885 to the summer of 1886, the period in which he wrote his breakthrough philosophical books Beyond Good and Evil and On the Genealogy of Morality. Keen to reinvent himself after Thus Spoke Zarathustra, the philosopher used these unpublished notes to chart his search for a new philosophical voice. The notebooks contain copious drafts of book titles; critical retrospection on his earlier projects; a critique of the feminine; prophetic commentary on Germany; and forays into metaphysics, epistemology, ethics, aesthetics, and language. They also reveal his deep concern for Europe and its future and a burgeoning presence of the Dionysian. We learn what Nietzsche was reading and from whom he borrowed, and we find a considerable portion of notes and fragments from the non-book “Will to Power,” though here they are unembellished and unmediated. Richly annotated and accompanied by a detailed translator’s afterword, this landmark volume sheds light on the controversy surrounding the Nachlass of the 1880s.

Friedrich Nietzsche – Unpublished Fragments from the Period of Thus Spoke Zarathustra (Summer 1882-Spring 1883/84)

Translated, with an Afterword, by Paul S. Loeb and David F. Tinsley, The Complete Works of Friedrich Nietzsche, vol. 14


     This volume provides the first English translation of Nietzsche’s unpublished notebooks from 1882–1884, the period in which he was composing the book that he considered his best and most important work, Thus Spoke Zarathustra. Crucial transitional documents in Nietzsche’s intellectual development, the notebooks mark a shift into what is widely regarded as the philosopher’s mature period. They reveal his long-term design of a fictional tetralogy charting the philosophical, pedagogical, and psychological journeys of his alter-ego, Zarathustra. Here, in nuce, appear Zarathustra’s teaching about the death of God; his discovery that the secret of life is the will to power; and his most profound and most frightening thought—that his own life, human history, and the entire cosmos will eternally return. During this same period, Nietzsche was also composing preparatory notes for his next book, Beyond Good and Evil, and the notebooks are especially significant for the insight they provide into his evolving theory of drives, his critical ideas about the nature and history of morality, and his initial thoughts on one of his best-known concepts, the superhuman (Übermensch).

Blaise Benoit.

La philosophie de Nietzsche


Nietzsche : penseur inclassable, résolument en guerre contre la philosophie? Il est pourtant possible de parler de « la philosophie de Nietzsche », une philosophie atypique, toute en déplacements et en continuités.

Mouvementée fut la vie du philosophe, tour à tour professeur de philologie, admirateur de Wagner, esprit libre et solitaire, avant de sombrer dans la folie. Toute aussi mouvementée fut sa pensée qui passa de l’interprétation des textes antiques à celle de ce texte qu’est la réalité; une réalité qu’il faut saisir, pour mieux la porter à son élévation, dans le sillage d’une dynamique interprétative animée par la volonté de puissance, l’éternel retour et Dionysos. Dynamique que l’on suit pas à pas dans une troisième partie par la présentation des œuvres, témoins d’un parcours philosophique exceptionnel.

Martine Béland. NIETZSCHE – SIX PREFACES (1886 – 1887)

Nietzsche – Six préfaces (1886 – 1887), avant-propos de Martine Béland

     À partir de 1886, Nietzsche écrit une préface à chacune de ses nouvelles publications. Dans le même temps, il se lance dans la réédition de ses premiers livres.

     Ce volume réunit pour la première fois en français les cinq préfaces de 1886 à La naissance de la tragédie, aux deux volumes de Humain, trop humain, à Aurore et au Gai savoir. Ces textes brefs, écrit Nietzsche à son ami Overbeck le 14 novembre, sont «probablement la meilleure prose que j’ai écrite jusqu’alors».

     Nous leur joignons la préface de 1887 à la Généalogie de la morale.

Forme ed etica del tempo in Nietzsche


  Forme ed etica del tempo propone quattro aperture prospettiche su un problema decisivo per Nietzsche : l’esperienza e il manifestarsi della temporalità per il « soggetto » ; la funzione performativa del pensiero del tempo nella determinazione dell’agire e della forma di vita ; la funzione che il tempo svolge nei meccanismi psicofisiologici alla base di fenomeni come la coscienza e la volontà ; e infine, l’esplorazione del rapporto tra verità e tempo in un orizzonte psicoanalitico come quello di Jung, profondamente segnato dalla influenza nietzscheana. Una ricognizione teorica il più possibile attenta alla base testuale e che si richiama in questo alla tradizione interpretativa filologica e filosofica della scuola di Mazzino Montinari e Giorgio Colli.

Keith Ansell-Pearson.

Nietzsche’s Search for Philosophy. On the Middle Writings


     In Nietzsche’s Search for Philosophy : On the Middle Writings Keith Ansell-Pearson makes a novel and thought-provoking contribution to our appreciation of Nietzsche’s neglected middle writings. These are the texts Human, all too Human (1878-80), Dawn (1881), and The Gay Science (1882). There is a truth in the observation of Havelock Ellis that the works Nietzsche produced between 1878 and 1882 represent the maturity of his genius. 

     In this study he explores key aspects of Nietzsche’s philosophical activity in his middle writings, including his conceptions of philosophy, his commitment to various enlightenments, his critique of fanaticism, his search for the heroic-idyllic, his philosophy of modesty and his conception of ethics, and his search for joy and happiness. The book will appeal to readers across philosophy and the humanities, especially to those with an interest in Nietzsche and anyone who has a concern with the fate of philosophy in the modern world.

Friedrich Nietzsche. MAS ALLA DEL BIEN Y DEL MAL. Preludio de una filosofía del futuro

Friedrich Nietzsche.

Más allá del bien y del mal. Preludio de una filosofía del futuro

Kilian Lavernia (Traductor)


       Si Más allá del bien y del mal es considerada una de las obras de madurez más representativas del pensamiento nietzscheano, esto se debe a la claridad con la que se exponen sus prioridades : el desmontaje genealógico de las prácticas y discursos filosóficos, religiosos, políticos o estéticos, así como de las pulsiones morales y estructuras metafísicas que sustentan sus gramáticas comunes. Desnudado el valor de la verdad, cuestionado el valor de los valores que codifican el paisaje cultural de las realidades humanas del pasado y presente europeos, la mirada honesta y arriesgada de los « nuevos psicólogos » se convierte ahora en el experimento transvalorador de una nueva « filosofía del futuro », aunque sólo sea a modo de « preludio ».
