Nietzsche's critique of the modern subject is often presented as a radical break with modern philosophy and associated with the so-called `death of the subject' in 20th century philosophy. But Nietzsche claimed to be a `psychologist' who was trying to open up the path for `new versions and sophistications of the soul hypothesis.' Although there is no doubt that Nietzsche gave expression to a fundamental crisis of the modern conception of subjectivity (both from a theoretical and from a practical-existential perspective), it is open to debate whether he wanted to abandon the very idea of subjectivity or only to pose the problem of subjectivity in new terms. The volume includes 26 articles by top Nietzsche scholars. The chapters in Part I, "Tradition and Context", deal with the relationship between Nietzsche's views on subjectivity and modern philosophy, as well as with the late 19th century context in which his thought emerged; Part II, "The Crisis of the Subject", examines the impact of Nietzsche's critique of the subject on 20th century philosophy, from Freud to Heidegger to Dennett, but also in such authors as Deleuze, Foucault, Derrida, or Luhmann; Part III, "Current Debates - From Embodiment and Consciousness to Agency", shows that the way in which Nietzsche engaged with such themes as the self, agency, consciousness, embodiment and self-knowledge makes his thought highly relevant for philosophy today, especially for philosophy of mind and ethics.

MEDIA REVIEWS

"Nietzsche and the Problem of Subjectivity is destined to become an indispensable reader for any future investigation of subjectivity that wants to engage with Nietzsche. Each contribution is clearly written, very informative and presents research performed at a high scholarly level. Taken together, they display an enormous amount of work and provide a historically saturated and systematically fruitful engagement with Nietzsche and the problem of subjectivity."

- Kasper Lysemose, in Nietzsche-Studien 46 (2017).
