The Paradox of Philosophical Education: Nietzsche's New Nobility and the Eternal Recurrence in Beyond Good and Evil is the first coherent interpretation of Nietzsche's mature thought. Author Harvey Lomax pays particular attention to the problematic concept of nobility which concerned the philosopher during his later years. This sensitive reading of Nietzsche examines nobility as the philosopher himself must have seen it: as a true and powerful longing of the human soul, interwoven with poetry, philosophy, religion, and aristocratic politics. Both a close textual analysis and a thoughtful reconceptualization of Beyond Good and Evil, The Paradox of Philosophical Education penetrates beyond the philosopher's mask of caustic irony to the face of the real Nietzsche: a lover of wisdom whose work sought to resurrect it in all its Socratic splendor

MEDIA REVIEWS
Far from tedious, reading Nietzsche along with Lomax conjures the feeling of participating in a hunt. Lomax skillfully leads his reader over some of the darker and more difficult terrain in Beyond Good and Evil and through it into the human soul...Following Lomax following Nietzsche sharpens one's eye for both the significant articulations and the unifying sinews of a variegated and shifting world. -- Tobin Craig, Boston College
Harvey Lomax's fine book deepens our understanding of Nietzsche in several ways. It offers a precise account of the chief features of Beyond Good and Evil, it carefully discusses alternatives to Nietzsche's arguments, and it illuminates the difficult Nietzschean themes of eternal recurrence and the connection between religion and philosophy. -- Mark Blitz, Claremont McKenna College
