Nietzsche's justice : naturalism in search of an ethics by Peter R Sedgwick( Book )

13 editions published in 2013 in English and Undetermined and held by 211 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In Nietzsche's Justice, Peter Sedgwick takes the theme of justice to the very heart of the great thinker's philosophy. He argues that Nietzsche's treatment of justice springs from an engagement with the themes charted in his first book, The Birth of Tragedy, which invokes the notion of an absolute justice grasped by way of artistic metaphysics. Nietzsche's encounter with Greek tragedy spurs the development of an oracular conception of justice capable of transcending rigid social convention. Sedgwick argues that although Nietzsche's later writings reject his earlier metaphysics, his mature thought is not characterized by a rejection of the possibility of the oracular articulation of justice found in the Birth. Rather, in the aftermath of his rejection of traditional accounts of the nature of will, moral responsibility, and punishment, Nietzsche seeks to rejuvenate justice in naturalistic terms. This rejuvenation is grounded in a radical reinterpretation of the nature of human freedom and in a vision of genuine philosophical thought as the legislation of values and the embracing of an ethic of mercy. The pursuit of this ethic invites a revaluation of the principles explored in Nietzsche's last writings. Smart, concise, and accessibly written, Nietzsche's Justice reveals a philosopher who is both socially embedded and oriented toward contemporary debates on the nature of the modern state."--Back cover

Nietzsche's economy : modernity, normativity and futurity by Peter R Sedgwick( Book )

10 editions published between 2007 and 2015 in English and held by 175 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book offers an interpretation of Nietzsche's writings that situates them in relation to the notions of modernity and the sphere of economic and industrial culture. Nietzsche is revealed to be a thinker who is inescapably bound up with his times: economically inspired notions of exchange, credit, debit, sacrifice, labour, possession, expenditure, surplus, measuring, weighing, evaluating, and the like permeate his thought. Starting with the Untimely Meditations, this study charts Nietzsche's early critical interest and engagement with the realm of commercial culture, his later criticisms of the cultural domination of modern mercantilism (in such works as Human, All Too Human, Daybreak, and The Gay Science) and his mature development of an account of modern society as an amalgam of contemporary practices residing upon ancient economically derived foundations. These elements are related to Nietzsche's vision of the overman and his conception of philosophy as a legislative enterprise."--Jacket
