Availability: Ready to download

Foucault's intellectual indebtedness to Nietzsche is apparent in his writing, yet the precise nature, extent, and nuances of that debt are seldom explored. Foucault himself seems sometimes to claim that his approach is essentially Nietzschean, and sometimes to insist that he amounts to a radical break with Nietzsche.

    Great intro for both Foucault and Nietzsche. But it really is an in depth assortment of scholarly work on the connections that exist between the two great thinkers. We know that Foucault has been inspired by Nietzsche, but it os hard to tell exactly how sometimes. If you have that problem then read this book.
