Emden’s Nietzsche

Emden’s Nietzsche Abstract: This article discusses Christian Emden’s conception of Nietzsche’s naturalism. I begin by noting that Emden’s reliance on Joseph Rowe’s conception of naturalism is deeply problematic and that Emden’s articulation of it is underdeveloped. These problems weaken his objections to other naturalistic readings. I then turn to discuss problems with Emden’s discussion of genealogy as “descriptive” rather than “explanatory.” Finally, I object to Emden’s claim that normativity is at the center of Nietzsche’s concerns. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png The Journal of Nietzsche Studies Penn State University Press
