Abstract

104 | JOURNAL OF NIETZSCHE STUDIES men and women that appear in GS 363—an aphorism that belongs to Book V, which was published in the 1887 GS, ae ft r both Z and BGE. Notwithstanding my hesitations about aspects of Verkerk’s approach to Z and GS V, her book is genuinely helpful in reminding us that Nietzsche’s later works say much about friendship. I would be interested in read- ing another book by Verkerk that investigates more deeply the relations between Nietzsche’s thinking about friendship and ancient authors that he regards as more important than Aristotle and his “whitening bones” (KSA 8:5[6]). I mean not only Plato and Thucydides, but also Seneca and Lucretius—and Cynics and Skeptics. One excellence of Verkerk’s book is that it inspires further questions about the link between Nietzsche’s think- ing and his actual practice of friendship. Her occasional asides to Nietzsche’s human relationships are invariably helpful—indeed, so helpful that they leave the reader wanting more in this vein. One might systematically inter- rogate Nietzsche’s relationships that ended as broken friendships (Richard Wagner, Lou Salomé, Paul Rée), his less intense but more enduring friend- ships (Heinrich Köselitz, Franz Overbeck, Malwida von Meysenbug), and finally his
