Plato-Nietzsche: Philosophy the Other Way

Author: 

Dixsaut, Monique

Credentials: 

Professor Emerita at the University of Paris I. Translator: Kenneth Quandt, Ph.D. in Classics, University of California, Berkeley

The "PHILOSOPHY THE OTHER WAY" uncovers in the works of Plato and Nietzsche not some royal road to truth but rather the intensity of their love and commitment to the life of thought, whatever it discovers and wherever it might lead. Plato explored this in his ubiquitous absence from the adventures of thought depicted in his Dialogues. Nietzsche followed suit with his unrelenting presence as the grim and forceful conscience behind all the masks through which he spoke in his chaotic oeuvre.
