Abstract

BOOK REVIEWS | 139 ‘forgiveness’” (N VI 1, p. 117). The underlying point is the same: ready for - giveness is not an option for “profound” people. Colli and Montinari give this as a letter in KSB 6:301–02, but the link with 4[91] is hidden, as it is for readers of this volume, and that seems to me a loss. Still, such points are minor compared to the benefit of having Nietzsche’s Nachlass of this period in a well-presented English edition. Readers will look forward to the promised sequel, taking them beyond Z to the ground- work of BGE. Also in store are the even more interesting 1881–82 fragments, which the publisher tells us will be combined with a new translation of GS in a single mammoth volume. Meanwhile, Nietzsche scholars have many reasons to be grateful to Paul S. Loeb and David F. Tinsley: for their metic- ulous scholarship, their literary skill, and, not least, their exemplary con- sideration for the reader. Their work in this volume sets a benchmark for future English translations of Nietzsche’s writing. Keith Ansell-Pearson, Nietzsche’s Search for Philosophy: On the Middle Writings.
