Cutting opposed to the grain of most present Nietzsche scholarship, Michael Allen Gillespie provides the idea of the overdue Nietzsche as Nietzsche himself meant, drawing not just on his released works yet at the plans for the works he was once not able to accomplish, which might be discovered all through his notes and correspondence. Gillespie argues that the belief of the everlasting recurrence remodeled Nietzsche’s considering from 1881 to 1889. It supplied either the foundation for his rejection of conventional metaphysics and the grounding for the recent common sense, ontology, theology, and anthropology he meant to create with the purpose of a basic transformation of eu civilization, a “revaluation of all values.” Nietzsche first broached the assumption of the everlasting recurrence in Thus Spoke Zarathustra, yet its failure to realize recognition or public reputation led him to offer the assumption back via a chain of works meant to culminate in a never-completed magnum opus. Nietzsche believed this concept might permit the redemption of humanity. whilst, he well-known its terrifying, apocalyptic effects, because it could additionally produce wars of extraordinary ferocity and destruction. via his cautious research, Gillespie finds a extra radical and extra harmful Nietzsche than the humanistic or democratic Nietzsche we mostly contemplate this day, but in addition a Nietzsche who used to be deeply at odds with the Nietzsche alleged to be the forefather of Fascism.
Gillespie’s essays learn Nietzsche’s ultimate teaching—its parts and its political, philosophical, and theological importance. The booklet concludes with a severe exam and a mirrored image on its which means for us today.

Timo Reuter erläutert im vorliegenden Werk, warum das „bedingungslose Grundeinkommen“ (BGE) im Kontext liberaler Konzeptionen als gerecht bezeichnet werden kann. Der Autor zeigt, weshalb das BGE nicht nur mit dem liberalen Freiheitsbegriff vereinbar ist, sondern durch die gewährte materielle Grundlage erst eine „wirkliche Freiheit“ jenseits neoliberaler Vorstellungen ermöglicht. Außerdem wird dargelegt, warum das BGE sehr wohl mit dem Leistungsbegriff kompatibel ist und, dass es Chancengleichheit sowie Ressourcengerechtigkeit begünstigt. Sozialpolitische, psychologische, humanistische und finanzielle Erwägungen zum BGE zeigen schließlich, dass dieses mehr ist als eine Utopie: Es ist eine konkrete imaginative and prescient für eine freiere und gerechtere Gesellschaft.
