The Nietzsche Dictionary

Overview

Nietzsche is not difficult to read, but he is famously difficult to understand. This is because of the bewildering array of words, phrases or metaphors that he uses. The Nietzsche Dictionary aims to help, by giving readers a road map to Nietzsche's language, and how his terminology and images relate together, forming an overall philosophical picture. The Dictionary also includes synopses of Nietzsche's key works, and short articles on the main philosophical and cultural influences leading up to, and resulting from, Nietzsche. Easy to use and navigate, the book treats all entries thematically and arranges them into seven types: Influences on, or the contemporary context of, Nietzsche; Major influences of Nietzsche; Key concepts; Key metaphors or images; Alternative translations; Other words or phrases found in Nietzsche that are cross-referenced to a main entry; Synopses of major works by Nietzsche. Designed to be a resource that all readers of Nietzsche will find invaluable, this text is an essential tool for everyone, from beginners to the more advanced.

Reviews

Douglas Burnham is a subtle and incisive reader of Nietzsche and this dictionary will prove to be of tremendous help to students seeking a guide to the main ideas and concepts of this highly original and independent-minded philosopher. It is an excellent guide and I highly recommend it. Keith Ansell-Pearson, Professor of Philosophy, University of Warwick, UK This work is a most helpful guide to Nietzsche's philosophical language, by an author who has an in-depth acquaintance with the texts and a comprehensive understanding of Nietzsche's ideas. Readers will find the philosophical glosses and extensive cross-references especially illuminating. Graham Parkes, Professor and Head, Department of Philosophy, University College Cork, Ireland

With an impressively comprehensive and thorough grasp of Nietzsche's texts, Burnham provides clear, jargon-free, and aptly cross-referenced dictionary entries of lengths varying from single paragraphs to over six pages ... The plethora of citations to the original texts in which defined terms and concepts are located will prove valuable both to novice and advanced readers, whether casually or rigorously engaged with Nietzsche's thought. Summing Up: Recommended. Lower-level undergraduates through researchers/faculty; general readers. -- R. A. Sica Jr., Colorado State University * CHOICE *
