Abstract

with this double myth. Detering skillfully anatomizes the interlacing of the mythical references in these notes, which are far too complex to be adequately summarized here. Detering's book thus provides an outstanding analysis of the late Nietzsche. His refusal to dismiss Nietzsche's late writings, and particularly his notes of 1889, on psychological grounds throws a fascinating new light on Nietzsche's late work. Certainly, this concise but thorough study is not exhaustive, but raises many new questions that both philosophical and theological Nietzsche scholarship should take up. Ultimately, even if Nietzsche's last letters were written beyond what we would call sanity, Detering's analysis gives useful incentives to doubt that they were written beyond method.
