Top Customer Reviews
By prioritising the affirmation and the radical ontology of a becoming flux; Deleuze comes close to an non-moral understanding of the will to power. It is certainly to be read against the works of Kaufmann; but it is meticulously close to the text of Nietzsche, and doesn't gloss over tricky passages to advance an unwieldy interpretation.
This book has inspired all subsequent scholarship, as with I highly recommend Leiter and Cox. It is also wonderfully close to the use of Nietzsche by Derrida, in his essay 'Difference' and 'Margins'.
If you want to understand Nietzsche on his own terms, then read this after reading Nietzsche's Oeuvre.
Most Helpful Customer Reviews on Amazon.com (beta) (May include reviews from Early Reviewer Rewards Program)
Nietzsche wrote "for those with ears to hear". Deleuze heard and wrote in the same voice. Or, at least, with the same timbre. Brilliant, insightful, powerful, dense, abstract, chock-full of enough neologisms to make Webster blush. This book might be a complete departure from Nietzsche. But that is the point. While many might read closer to the letter of Nietzsche, no-one evokes the spirit. Not even close.
It is one of those ultra-rare literary experiences that challenges you to your utmost limit - never giving you a step of ground, but always hinting (seductively) at the glory at the top of the mountain.
If you read Nietzsche and felt that somehow all of the commentaries were a little "off", a little simplistic, then buy this book and give it a read.
