|Grounding the Nietzsche Rhetoric of Earth|
Del Caro, Adrian
2004, 460 S, Gb, (Gruyter)
This treatment is the first to comprehensively address the issue of where Nietzsche stands in relation to environment, and it will contribute to the 'greening' of Nietzsche. Using a philological method Del Caro reveals the ecumenical Nietzsche whose doctrines are strategies for responsible and creative partnership between humans and earth. The major doctrines are shown to be organically related to early writings linked to paganism, the quotidian, and the closest things of Human, All Too Human. Perspective is shifted from time to place in the eternal recurrence of the same, and from power to empowerment in The Will to Power.
