The Later Interpretations

Show Summary Details

Preview

Presentations of the relationship between Nietzsche and Rée have varied, for reasons that often reflect the interpreter’s own concerns. Lou Salomé’s 1894 book on Nietzsche and Elisabeth Förster-Nietzsche’s biographies gives the perspectives of interested parties engaged in rivalry over Nietzsche’s legacy. For various reasons, later commentators underestimated the importance of this period in Nietzsche’s thinking, as well as showing little interest in the themes of ‘Réealism’. A more comprehensive view of Nietzsche’s thought will include a balanced assessment of his philosophical partnership with Paul Rée.
