Reviews

In this turbulent time in which the death of the social reveals itself in the form of increasingly violent spasms of racialized hatred and bitter cultural divisions, what could be more timely than Anas Karzai's important reflections on Nietzsche as a "prophet of affirmation" charting a pathway of thought and practice through the complicated history that is the twenty-first century? Here, the affirmative thought of Nietzsche is traced in its full dimensions, a critically engaged and eloquently written story that follows a brilliant trajectory from Comte and Durkheim to those other affirmative thinkers of modern times--Foucault, Adorno and Weber.--Arthur Kroker, is author of, among others, The Will to Technology: Nietzsche, Heidegger, Marx, Body Drift and Exits to the Posthuman Future
