This book sheds new light on Nietzsche's concept of freedom, interpreting it through postmodern ideas. "Nietzsche's Classification of Human Types as Key to His Evolutionary Theory" sheds new light on Nietzsche's theory of free will and the concept of freedom. The book is divided into two parts. The first part of the book examines Nietzsche's categorization of human types, which Nietzsche labels as the bound spirit, the free spirit, and the Ubermensch. The second part of the book demonstrates how Nietzsche's categorization of human types is connected to the concepts of freedom, will, and truth. Not only does Goldsmith show the contradictions within Nietzsche's categorization of humans as they apply to his theory of the will to power, but she also points out that within Nietzsche' nihilistic explanation of human existence there is a sense of freedom within the will to power that drives humans to their greatest achievements. The book is a major contribution to the thought of Friedrich Nietzsche, one of the world's greatest philosophers, and it will appeal to scholars in the fields of continental philosophy, the history of philosophy, twentieth century philosophy, and the social sciences.
