Book Reviews Orsolya Friedrich, Diana Aurenque, Galia Assadi, and Sebastian Schleidgen, eds. Nietzsche, Foucault und die Medizin. Philosophische Impulse für die Medizinethik. Bielefeld: Transcript, 2016. 298 pp. isbn: 978-3-8394-2875-7. Paperback, €32.99. Reviewed by Marta Faustino, IFILNOVA / New University of Lisbon e ide Th a underlying Nietzsche, Foucault und die Medizin is laudable in at least two respects. First, it brings together Nietzsche and Foucault—a con- nection so multifaceted and fruitful that, despite the many recent volumes and essays devoted to it, it is still far from exhausted. Second, it focuses on the ethics of medicine, which, given the extraordinary development of medicine in the past two centuries and its related ethical challenges, is a field that increasingly demands philosophical reflection, finding in Nietzsche and Foucault extremely rich and fertile ground. As the editors point out in their introduction, the depth and breadth of Nietzsche’s and Foucault’s insights into the philosophy of medicine—including its epistemological, sociological, ethical, and political dimensions—are only now beginning to be acknowledged (10). e v Th olume consists of twelve articles, which are organized into three main sections. The first, “Medizin und die Produktion von Gesundheit/ Krankheit,” deals with methodological aspects of Nietzsche’s and Foucault’s approaches
