Abstract

Regarding the theme of language, Paulo Pinheiro's "Nietzsche, a linguagem e a sofistica" (Nietzsche, language and the sophistical) and Rafael Haddock-Lobo's "Nietzsche por detrás da Gramatologia de Derrida--ou a desconstrução do signo" (Nietzsche behind Derrida's grammatology--or the deconstruction of the sign) are enlightening. Both essays show how Nietzsche is a precursor to the contemporary vision of language when he indicates that the problem of language can no longer be ignored by philosophy and science. While Pinheiro treats Nietzsche's approval of rhetoric as a gesture that could be seen as a retrieval of sophist premises, Haddock-Lobo treats Nietzsche as the main source of Derridean deconstruction, enabling the notorious transition from language to "writing," absolutizing the "trace" over sign. "Thinking against sign in favor of the trace," Haddock-Lobo claims, "was perhaps one of Nietzsche's many tasks" (235). Finally, it is worth mentioning the concluding essay of the book, Wolfgang Bock's essay on Walter Benjamin's reception of Nietzsche, "`Você conhece o Zaratustra? Por várias razões, não ousei aproximar-me dele na escola.' Walter Benjamin como leitor crítico de Friedrich Nietzsche" ("Do you know Zarathustra? For various reasons, I did not dare approach him in school." Walter Benjamin as critical reader of Friedrich
