|Die Griechen im Denken Nietzsches|
2005, 292 S, Gb, (Gruyter)
Enrico Müller presents here the first overall philosophical account of the significance of the Greeks for Nietzsches thought. He demonstrates how Nietzsches own philosophy developed in his occupation with Attic tragedy, Greek culture and the Pre-Socratics and expounds the problems Nietzsche had in delineating his philosophy from the logos-based philosophy of Classical Greece. In his interpretation of the tense relationship between Nietzsche and Socrates and Plato, Müller concludes that in the final analysis Nietzsches philosophy remains bound to the models of Socratic-Platonic dialectics. Working from contemporary scholarship in Greek Studies and Ancient History, the astonishing modernity of Nietzsches approaches becomes apparent.
