Henry Staten adopts an innovative psychodialectical approach to Nietzsche, drawn from Nietzsches own doctrine that philosophical thought is governed by drives and instincts that for Nietzsche as for Freud are fundamentally sexual in nature. StatenMoreHenry Staten adopts an innovative psychodialectical approach to Nietzsche, drawn from Nietzsches own doctrine that philosophical thought is governed by drives and instincts that for Nietzsche as for Freud are fundamentally sexual in nature. Staten explores what he calls the libidinal economy of the Nietzschean text, focusing on the dialectic between Nietzsches conscious project and the system of erotic influences upon his writings. Addressing both Nietzsches thematic concerns and the nuances of his rhetoric, Staten offers penetrating interpretations of individual works including The Genealogy of Morals, The Birth of Tragedy, and Thus Spake Zarathustra.
